Permanent Visas - Australia

Migration to Australia



Australian Skilled Migration is an exciting visa option for people to start a new life in Australia, if they meet the criteria and required points.  For Assessment of your current points by a Registered Australian Migration Agent, please; call us to discuss your eligibility for Australian Migration, fill in our enquiry form and attach your CV or fill out our online skills assessment tool. Skilled migration to Australia has undergone some significant changes over the years with another overhaul in April 2017 that saw the removal of over 200 occupations from the new lists. The Skilled Occupation List (SOL), has been replaced by the new Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL). Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) has replaced the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL)  Contact us to see if you can still apply. This has meant that it can be harder to get into Australia due to more limited places and increased requirements for the applicant. However, people can and do still go to Australia. Mate Migration Ltd. is a company that can help ensure you have the best chance of navigating through the system for a successful application if you have the required points to be able to get a visa for Australia.


Permanent migration to Australia is still done on a points system. The system now however, has a greater emphasis on; experience, younger age and English language through the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).  If your occupation is on the new list and you meet the other criteria we hope to help you get your visa for Australia.


There are multiple stages to go through to gain your Skilled Visa (Skilled Independent 189 Visa); Skills Assessment, Work Experience Assessment, IELTS, State Sponsorship (if you are applying for a 190 application) and the Application Itself. Not to mention liaising with the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection and various assessment bodies and providing suitable evidence. There are also similarities to the New Zealand system e.g. there is an EOI’s (Expression of Interest) and a competitive pool of applicants that you will need to be picked from to progress to the next stage.


All of these steps Mate Migration can help you through, with over 15 years of experience in Migration to Australia and our MARA registered personnel.
