Australian Skilled Worker Visas

All Australian visa applications are managed and processed by the government through the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Most applications are administered online through various DIABP offices in Australia. Some are managed through local country Embassies or Consulates.

Skilled worker visas require that you meet a number of criteria and in most cases a minimum points score that is currently set at 60 points.


The interpretation of criteria is often mistaken by clients. This is a critical element of any application and is where our knowledge and experience can guide you.


Factors include proven education, work experience, health and character. The lead applicant has to be under 45 years of age.


Other rules determine who you may include in your application and for some visas your settlement funds.


At Advice On Migration we review your background fully. We only accept clients who we believe have both the commitment and background to achieve their dream of living and working in Australia.


Our consultants are skilled in supporting clients through this complex process guiding and advising you through to securing your visas, your job search and settlement in Australia.
