Australia Skilled Migration SubClass-491
Under the Australia Skilled Migration programme, skilled workers can reside and work in select defined locations of Australia for up to four years. This visa can only be obtained on the basis of an invitation. This programme is aimed for people who want to live and work in less well-known parts of Australia. These provinces will have a lower population density. This is another programme for Permanent Resident Visas. In addition, you must submit an Expression of Interest through the Skill Select Portal.
If your profile matches the requirements in a rural area of Australia, you will be nominated by that province. This nomination may be used to apply for permanent residency in Australia.
You will be given an Australian PR Permit if you follow the rules. For a set amount of time, you must live and work in the province that granted you the nomination.
This is another point-based scheme in which you must achieve 60 points out of a possible 100.
To be invited to apply for this visa, you must earn at least 60 points on the test factors. The following factors are used to determine how many points are awarded:
Age: Based on your age on the day you were invited to apply, you can earn points. When you are invited to apply for this visa, you have to be under the age of 50.
English language ability: At the time you are invited to apply and when you submit your application, you must be able to demonstrate that you have at least passable English language competence. Competent English does not earn you any points.
The results of one of the following English language tests, undertaken not more than 36 months prior to the time you were invited to apply for this visa, can be used to evidence your English language ability.
Nominated occupation: The applicant should propose an occupation from the Consolidated Skilled Occupation List (CSOL) that is relevant to his or her talents, qualifications, and recent work experience, as well as being available in any of the states that would sponsor the state nomination.
Skill Assessment: Before submitting an application, a candidate must receive a positive skill evaluation for the specified occupation.
Maintenance funds: The applicants should show sufficient maintenance funds to obtain sponsorship from state territory.
Health & character requirements: The applicant has to meet health and character requirements.
Either an Australian state or territory government agency must nominate you, or you must declare that you will be sponsored by an eligible relative. For more information, see the section below.
