Summary of general skilled migration information

Australia's general skilled migration program targets people who are highly skilled, are under 45 years of age, have a high level of English language ability and who will quickly make a contribution to the Australian economy.

To make a valid application, applicants or their spouses must be able to satisfy essential criteria. If you are not able to satisfy these basic requirements, you should not continue with a general skilled migration application.
See:
Basic Requirements.

To apply for skilled migration, you need to select the appropriate visa. There are three categories:

  1. Offshore general skilled - for applicants generally outside Australia;
  2. Onshore general skilled - for overseas students currently studying in Australia;
  3. Onshore New Zealand citizen - for NZ citizens currently in Australia.

Within these three categories, there are the following types of visas:

  • independent - for those who meet the basic requirements and do not have a sponsor, or who choose not to be sponsored or nominated by a State or Territory government;
  • skill matching - for those wanting to be involved in the skill matching process and who are seeking to be nominated by a State or Territory government or an employer;
  • designated area sponsored - for those who have a sponsor and an assurer. The sponsor must live in a designated area, and you must be related to your sponsor;
  • Australian sponsored - for those who have a sponsor and an assurer, but the sponsor either lives outside a designated area or lives in Sydney or a selected area (Gosford, Newcastle or Wollongong). If your sponsor lives in Sydney or a 'selected area,' you must nominate an occupation listed on the Sydney and Selected Areas Skilled Shortage List (SSASSL). You must be related to your sponsor.
