The Australian Immigration process
To migrate to Australia an individual can either submit his application through a visa consultant or directly on the website of The Department of Immigration and Border Protection, the Australian immigration department. However, applying through a consultant is better as it ensures that applications are submitted without any errors. Additionally, the consultants also keep a constant eye on the application progress as it takes as much as 2 years before an application is ratified by the department.
There are various channels through which an individual of foreign nationality can immigrate to the country but immigration visas that come with permanent residency are the most preferred. Australian immigration from India can be completed in a few simple steps. The first step of the two-part process involves submission of application by the applicant to the immigration department. Upon submission of the applications, the department evaluates all the applications. It uses the comprehensive points-based system to evaluate these applicants and shortlist prospective candidates.
Under the second part of the process, every applicant’s profile is evaluated based on pre-defined criteria. An applicant must score a minimum of 60 points in his overall profile evaluation to become eligible for permanent residency in Australia. The aspects that are assessed are age, certifications, educational qualifications, language proficiency, work experience, etc.
Once all the applications are evaluated and assessed, they are put in a pool wherein they are ranked based on the points received. The top scoring candidates are then sent an Invitation to Apply to which they must reply with their Expression of Interests within the next 60 days of receipt of their invitations.
Not everyone can apply for permanent residency in Australia. Individuals need to be eligible for that. The basic requirements include:
- The age of the candidate must not be more than 50 years old.
- The applicant must be fluent in English and must possess an overall IELTS score of 6.
- The individual must select an occupation he wishes to pursue from the Consolidated Occupations List published from
