Indian Immigrants who desire to relocate to Australia generally choose one of the two immigration methods.

  • Skilled stream.
  • Family stream.

Skilled stream

Australia needs skilled immigrants who will add to the country’s financial development. Skilled migrants carry a better level of education and a greater opportunity of getting work, and the possibility to enhance the country’s economic contribution. As a result, employer-sponsored candidates have a better chance of reaching the intended objectives.

Most Indians migrate to Australia as talented workers and use the skilled migration plan to migrate to Australia.

You can apply for a visa via the GSM plan. Australia prints a list of more than 300 openings regularly in these occupation lists.

  • Skilled occupation list aka SOL.
  • Consolidated skill occupation list aka CSOL.

Eligibility criteria: The following are the eligibility needs for the general skilled migration, aka GSM plan.

  • You must have experience in a selected occupation on Australia’s skilled occupation list.
  • You must have a skill assessment report by a nominated officer for that career.
  • You must submit an EOI.
  • Your age should be under 45 years.
  • You must meet health and character criteria.

Skilled Nominated Visa (Subclass 190): This permit is only available if you are selected by an Australian state or territory. This visa presents the same benefits as the Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189), except that you must have previous experience in a nominated job in the SOL.  

Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) (Subclass 491) Visa: This visa has replaced the Subclass 489 visa to PR in Australia. This visa needs you and your families to reside, work, and study in a selected regional area for five years. You and your family will be eligible for a PR visa after three years.  

Family stream

If your close relative is an Australian citizen or PR, you can move to Australia under this stream. Spouses, partners, dependent children, parents of citizens, and PRs of Australia prioritize the family stream. It also allows your other family members like elders, dependent relatives, caregivers, and others to relocate to Australia.

Other streams   

Employer-sponsored migration: This plan aims to solve skill shortages in the Australian worker market by matching job openings with immigrants who carry the needed skills and experience.

Business innovation investment plan: The Australian business visa program helps global entrepreneurs, leading executives, and investors run new or expanding existing organizations in Australia. This plan might also be a way of getting permanent residency.
