Australia Skilled Worker Visas
The 189 visa is the premier visa Australia has to offer for skilled workers. The main advantage is that it provides permanent residency on arrival. This affords the holder and their family peace of mind and security for the future. Being a visa for life the holder and their family are free to live and work anywhere in Australia, have access to free education, Medicare and can make pension contributions. There are also no restrictions on the property the holder can purchase. Once you hold a 189 visa for Australia you really can relax knowing Australia is your new home.
Proposed changes to Skilled Migration to Australia
Currently, the Australian government is reviewing the policy allowing permanent residency on arrival and wants to introduce a probationary period after arrival. The proposed change would require all new migrants to complete a 2 years probationary period in Australia before becoming eligible for permanent residency and all the benefits permanent residency provides.
If these proposed changes are applied, it will remove the most attractive element of the 189 visa. Therefore, we recommend you to file your case as soon as possible if you wish to avoid future disruption to your plans.
Learn how to emigrate as skilled Migrant
To secure a 189 visa a person must be invited to apply from the Expression Of Interest pool. After filling an E.O.I, the immigration case is evaluated on several criteria set by the Australian Government ranging from your skills and experience, family history to your character and health. Australia is clear in who they want to invite and even though each case is unique and dealt with on its own individual merits how a case is present to the Australian government remains paramount to its success.
