About Australia


     The Australian selection of migrants has changed profoundly. E.g. it is obligatory now to have one's qualifications preliminary assessed by an Australian authority, all applicants are required to know English perfectly well (hence the Occupations Requiring English list is no longer in use), etc. Also the pass mark was raised.

Emigration is undertaken against a global annual intake mainly in the categories Independent Skilled, Skilled Independent Regional, Skilled Australian Linked, Family, Business/Investment, Spouse and Retiree. In all visa classes Australia operates a criteria based upon legislation delivered by the DIMA. Australia now introduced a Skilled Occupations List. Unlike Canada Australia can and does change the points pass mark often, these rapid changes can
suddenly make ineligible earlier potentially successful applicants. Therefore it is strongly recommended for all applicants to quickly start the procedure as soon as they are positive in their decision and qualify against immigration requirements. Language can be learned during the processing of your application that takes at an average one year.

Points are awarded under an Australian system for a combination of factors that you can get acquainted with on this site (General Requirements for Prospective Migrants).

Under the migration targets Australia hopes to attract approximately 80,000 migrants (all classes of visa). This figure is likely to change substantially in the years to come.
