  1. Australia is a popular destination for all aspiring immigrants around the world. The favorable factors like a thriving economy, a plethora of job opportunities and welcoming culture makes Australia a top choice for immigration. Australia not only promises you a better quality of life or multicultural society but, it offers you an equal opportunity to grow and develop as an individual. Australia offers a permanent residency with a validity of up to five years via specific PR visa subclasses. The top and the most popular visa subclass via which you can apply for Australia PR, includes Subclass 190 Visa and Subclass 189 Visa. So, in this article, we will discuss the general eligibility criteria for Visa Subclass 190 and 189. Both the visa subclasses follow the point-based system to evaluate the applicants and provide permanent residency in Australia to eligible applicants. In this point-based system, an applicant must score a minimum of 67 points or higher to qualify to apply for an Australian PR visa. About Visa Subclass 190 and Visa Subclass 189 The Skilled Nominated visa Subclass 190 is designed for those skilled workers who are nominated by any state or territory of Australia. With this visa, you can live and work anywhere in Australia permanently and you can also include your eligible family members in your application. While, the Skilled Independent Visa subclass 189 is designed for those skilled workers who don't have any sponsorship from any state or territory, a family member or an employer in Australia. With this visa, one can live and work anywhere in Australia permanently and can include eligible family members in the visa application. Common PR Visa eligibility requirements for Visa Subclass 190 and 189: To get an invitation to apply, you must: Have relevant experience in a nominated occupation that has to be mentioned in Australia's Skilled Occupations List Have a positive skills assessment done by an authorized assessing body for a nominated occupation Submit a valid Expression of Interest through SkillSelect Age between 18 to 50 years Meet basic requirements of General Skilled Migration, including health checks, character checks, and English language abilities Score minimum of 67 points on the points test You can include only the following family members in the application: Your partner Yours and your partner's dependent children Yours or your partner's dependent relative With this visa subclass 190, you and your family members can: Live and work permanently in Australia Enroll in Medicare, Australia's dedicated medical scheme that is covered for health-related expenses Study in Australia Travel to and from Australia for up to 5 years Sponsor your relatives for Australian permanent residency Access specific social security payments Apply for Australian citizenship (if meet residency requirements) Please note, the above list outlines the general Australia PR Visa eligibility requirements, further eligibility requirements may be applicable as per different visa subclasses

    ACS Professional Year Skill Assesment

    Hi Guys, I am scheduled to graduate from ACS Professional Year in the next one month. My skill assessment for subclass 485 visa assessed as Computer Network and Systems Engineer took me 1.5 months. Was just wondering how long does the assessment take to be completed once a person already had a 485 skill assessment and just wanting another assessment considering the ACS Professional Year. People who have gone through this phase kindly throw some light on this.. Thaknks

    Subclass 190

    Hello I am an external auditor who has submitted my EOI. Under the 189 visa, I have obtained 55 points and under 190 visa I have obtained 60 points - NSW (which is a just pass/borderline pass) Could someone advise me as to the chances of being nominated with a 60 pointer. Thanks.
  4. So after recently visiting my brother in Brisbane we've decided to take the plunge and try and move to Australia. We know it'll need to be a Subclass 189 visa and have started researching what this entails. We're going to do it all ourselves and not use an agent. I'm stuck already on the EOI submission....the immi website just keeps sending me round in circles and gives me no idea what to do next! Anyone got any ideas if i'm doing something wrong? I click on the EOI link......register the details and create a username and password (I've now done this twice) then it takes me to the log into skillselect which then goes back to the EOI link! Argh!! Are we waiting for them to reply?
  5. Dear Friends, I am planning to apply for sub class 189 visa. My plan is to apply as a single applicant . Once i get the visa, look for a job , get settled and then later apply for the family visa.. I came to know that it is very difficult to apply for family at later stage, so it is better to include dependents now. What do you guys suggest?
  6. Hi, I am new to this forum, please point me to such a discussion if already there :twitcy:. I am a software engineer working as a java developer holding B.Tech in computers with 6 years of experience. Can you please help me know which class I fall into of these two ? Also some consultant told me that 189 is almost closed now and very difficult to find job under, can people here please guide me. Many thanks!! Sameer :biggrin:
  7. Hello everyone. I am trying to get my head around the visa points list. I will be a qualified midwife when myself and my family apply for a visa, (still researching which one is best to go on) Could someone just clarify the following for me please: 1. Do I get awarded points for my degree with me qualifying in the UK? 2. As I was looking last year at the subclass 175 visa it stated you needed to be in your profession for 1 year to apply but on both the new visa's it say's 3 years for 5 points. Does that mean that is the minimum you now need to work or you can work less than that to apply but you get awarded 0 points?? If anyone could help with these questions I would be most grateful. Thank You Vikkey x
