Under the General Skilled Migration (GSM) programs, an applicant can apply for a Provisional or Permanent Resident Visa under Subclass 189, 190 & 489. Through these options Skilled Workers can live and work in Australia for an indefinite period. After having met all the requirements, Skilled Workers can apply for Australian Citizenship as well. General Skilled Migration is a point-based program, and points are awarded based on different factors such as Age, English Language Skills, Work Experience (outside Australia), Work Experience (inside Australia), Education (outside Australia), Education (inside Australia), Knowledge of Community Language, Studying and Living in Regional Australia, Spouse Skills and Sponsorship points from the State Territory Nomination and Relative Sponsorship. One can only qualify when a minimum of 60 points have been scored.
This process is divided into three stages:
The first stage of the process is Skill Assessment.
The second stage of the process is filing EOI (Expression of Interest).
The third stage is receiving a lodging application with DIBD. The list of professions who are eligible to apply for this category are mentioned in the Skilled Occupation List (SOL).
