Key Benefits of Permanent Residency (PR) in Australia


Australia’s Immigration program can be divided into 3 broad groups being Skilled or Economic migration, Family migration and the Refugee or Humanitarian program. This document will cover the First, Two, Groups.

General Skilled Migration

1. General Skilled Migration

The General Skilled Migration Programme, often referred to as the points test, includes the Skilled Independent Category and Skilled Sponsored Categories.  There have been numerous changes made to the processing of these applications since January 2010 in particular with the most significant change being introduced on 1 July 2012.  From this date the General Skilled Migration Program will operate under the new SkillSelect arrangements.  This means that applicants will first need to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) and then only if they are invited to lodge an application will it be possible to formally lodge an application for Permanent Residence in Australia.  It is important to note that prior to submitting an EOI, applicants must still obtain a positive skills assessment and where required, an IELTS (International English Language Test) or OET English Test with the required score.  Effective 1 July 2012 the points test includes the following components:-
