If you are planning to apply for Australian visa under GSM category, it is mandatory for you to undertake SkillSelect Program. This online program has two steps: first, submission of an EOI (Expression of Interest), and second, actual visa application.

Basic information to be submitted with EOI:

You are required to provide information that is required to submit your expression of interest depending upon the type of visa that you are eligible for. However, following are some of the basic information that you need to successfully lodge your EOI:

  • Basic personal information
  • Work experience information
  • Qualification documents
  • English Language Ability information (such as IELTS)
  • Details of successful skills assessment, related to your nominated occupation

1 July 2014, if a skills assessment is mandatory as part of a visa application, that assessment will only be valid for a period of three years from the date of issue, unless a shorter validity period is specified on the assessment.

A skills assessment must be valid at the time of lodgment for the following visas:

  • Direct Entry stream of the Employer Nominated Scheme (subclass 186) visa.
  • Direct Entry stream of the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (subclass 187) visa.

  • Skilled – Independent (subclass 189) visa.
  • Skilled – Nominated (subclass 190) visa.
  • Skilled Regional (Provisional) (subclass 489) visa.

However, these changes are not applicable to the Temporary Work (Skilled) (subclass 457) visa .

The following five visas must be applied after receiving the invitation from Expression of Interest :

  • Business Talent (Permanent) visa (subclass 132).
  • Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) visa (subclass 188).
  • Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189).

  • An Australian partner visa entitles married and de facto (opposite and same sex) partners of Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens to enter and/or remain in Australia.
  • Although, there are three major subclasses for partner visa, this visa is broadly divided into two categories: Prospective Marriage visa and Partner visa. The type of visa for which you should apply depends on the type of relationship you are in.

Subclass Partner Visa

  • Applicants can apply for a partner visa from either inside or outside Australia and are required to meet specific requirements before the visa can be granted. An Australian Spouse visa is initially granted as a temporary visa. After two (2) years, the relationship is reassessed and if deemed genuine, a permanent visa will be granted.
  • If you are in Australia, you are eligible to apply for Partner Temporary Visa (Subclass 820) and Permanent visa (subclass 801). You can apply for this visa to stay in Australia with your partner, who must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen. If the relationship is genuine and still on even after the two years of the application of this visa, you can be granted a permanent visa.
  • If you are outside Australia: Partner Temporary Visa (Subclass 309) and Permanent Visa (Subclass 100): You can apply for this visa to enter and stay in Australia with your partner, who must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen. A continuous and genuine relationship for two years after the application of this visa, can grant you a permanent visa.

Assessment of Partner visa by Immigration is done on the four pillars of relationship which include:

  • Financial aspects of relationship
  • Social aspects of relationship
  • Household of relationship
  • Commitment of relationship

Perspective marriage visa (subclass 300)

  • This visa allows people to come to Australia to marry their fiancé. It is granted for 9 months and applicant needs to marry fiancé in the 9 months.

The employer-sponsored visa allows Australian employers to sponsor specific skilled labour to serve their business needs. It also allows skilled labour of a foreign country to explore their employment options with Australian employers, in case they may need their skills.

Work Visa Australia Offer:

  • Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186)
  • Temporary Activity visa (subclass 408)
  • Training visa (subclass 407)
  • Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa (Subclass 187)
  • Temporary Work (International Relations) visa (subclass 403)
  • State/Territory Sponsored Business Owner visa (subclass 892)
  • State/Territory Sponsored Investor visa (subclass 893)

Both employers and employees must have a clear understanding of the employer visa laws and regulations to make a successful application. Even the slightest error in the application may result in negative visa outcome causing loss of time and money.

Both employees and employers must be aware of the visa conditions and obligations after the visa grant. In a way, it will help avoid any breach of visa conditions.

You can apply for this visa at the same time your employer lodges their applications to sponsor and nominate the position.

What Employer-Sponsored Visa allows you to do:

  • Work in Australia for up to four years
  • Bring your family to work or study in Australia
  • Travel in and out of Australia as often as you want

Since the purpose of this visa is to address the shortage of skilled labor that Australian employers may face in their business operations. The visa rules and requirements keep changing as per the need of Australian businesses.

At PR Education, we keep a close eye on such changes that are reflected in legislative instruments. While applying for Employer-Sponsored Visa, one must keep themselves updated with these changes, especially the one that is associated with your position.

Visitor visa is an overarching term. However, it can be broadly divided into two:

  • For only visit that may include vacationing, recreational activities, visiting an Australian resident family member, medical treatment etc.
  • For business activities that may include making general business or government enquiries, business negotiations, government visits, attending conferences, seminars, job interviews or professional examinations.
  • Apart from these there are some other special categories for visitor visas too.

PR is there for you if you want to visit Australia for any of these reasons or something other than these

Each of these visas has different requirements and eligibility criterion. Aussizz facilitates the processing of all of these visas as per your requirement.

Since, visitor visa is a general and broader term; it requires tremendous experience of immigration process and laws to match the exact type of visitor visa corresponding to your requirements.

Australian immigration department in an effort to bring family members together have introduced family visa in Australia. This entitles partners, parents, children and other family members to migrate to this country subject to certain pre-conditions. These visas are essentially sponsored by Australian citizens, permanent residents of this country, and eligible New Zealand citizens.

Partner Category Visa

Under this class a spouse or fiance/ fiancee is allowed to immigrate to Australia for settlement. Candidates migrating to this country with this visa are initially allowed temporary settlements followed by permanent residency after a couple of years. Partner category includes:

  • Spouses or married partners;
  • Fiancee or fiance, or partner intending marriage;
  • Willing partners including those of same sex

Immigrating candidates must have a partner in form of:

  • a permanent resident of Australia
  • a citizen of Australia; and iii) Eligible New Zealand citizen.

Parent Visa

Parent Visa is offered to applicants who have eligible child/ children stay in this country as an Australian citizen, a permanent resident, or an eligible citizen of New Zealand. This category of family visa immigration in Australia is mandatorily sponsored by children residing in this nation.

Parent Australian visas are issued for both working and aged kinds. Applicants immigrating on this visa option might take up an employment in Australia. Few Parent visas initially are offered for temporary settlement which could be changed to a permanent type subject to your application. There is an option for ‘Contributory Parent Visa’ which assures faster processing of immigration though at a higher cost.

It may be noted that every year a limited number of Parent Visas are issued by Australian immigration authorities. For this reason there is a queue of application and you may have to wait for your turn.

Child Visa

Alike Parent Visa, a Child Visa is also issued under several sub-classes. In general, the sponsorship of a child visa is necessarily to be done by a parent who is permanently settled in Australia, a citizen of this country, or a qualified New Zealand citizen.

In case the child concerned is in Australia then he/ she could immigrate as a permanent resident, dependent child, or orphaned relative. In the event, the concerned child is an offshore candidate then dependent child visa, adoption visa, or orphaned relative visa may be obtained.

Other Family Members

Brothers, sisters, dependent relatives, carers may also immigrate to Australia initially on temporary visa later changeable to permanent type. These family visas in Australia are sponsored by: i) Australian citizens; ii) a permanent resident of this country; and iii) Eligible New Zealand citizens.

We at PR Education are extremely cautious in assessing family visa immigration to Australia. Each application is meticulously checked and thereafter submitted with proper documentation. Health conformity reports and character certificates are essential documents needed for Australia visa applications.
