Visa updates from the Department of Immigration

Many may have missed Kristen note about skill select posted on the 29 July 2015 so we have put it up:

Are you a skilled worker interested in migrating to Australia? SkillSelect is an online system that allows you to quickly and easily enter your details to be considered for an invitation to apply for a skilled visa.

SkillSelect identifies overseas workers with the skills that are most in need in Australia. To find out if you have a skill that Australia needs, have a look at the Skilled Occupation lists on our website. State or territory governments will use SkillSelect to identify and select skilled workers that they wish to nominate for a skilled visa.  If you are nominated by a state or territory government, this will increase your opportunity to receive an invitation.

Over 39,000 invitations for skilled visas were issued in the 2014-15 programme year. 


If you are thinking of applying for an Australian visa you should speak to AR LAW Services: Master Immigration & visa lawyers first.  Contact us now for an initial free 30 minute consultation at our Melbourne office.
