This Australian skilled work visa scheme is designed to enhance and strengthen the economy, through providing overseas workers employment in Australia under a resident visa. They are designed for qualified workers who wish to work and live down under and who do not have an employer sponsoring them.
SkillSelect is an online system that enables skilled workers interested in migrating to Australia to register their details to be considered for a skilled visa through an Expression of Interest (EOI).
People wanting to migrate to Australia may be found and nominated for a skilled visa by an Australian employer or state and territory government, or they may be invited by the Australian Government to lodge a skilled visa application.
Applicants wanting to lodge an Expression on Interest (EOI) must score at least 65 points on the Skilled Migration Points Test. The Australian Government has set occupational ceiling limits to invitations under this points-based skilled migration program. This means there is a limit on how many EOIs are selected for skilled migration. When the occupation ceiling is reached for a particular occupational group, no further invitations will be issued for that program year. The Australian Government will publish reports every month indicating the number of positions still available for migration for each occupational group.

We can’t thank Ben & Kelly enough for helping our immigration dreams come true, this little Scots family is living our Australian dream, we are now citizens and proud to call Australia home, we have no doubt that we would not have got here so quickly or smoothly without their guidance and expertise. Best investment we made getting the professionals to help us. Saved us a lot of time and money. Forever grateful.

Partner Visa, Child Visa, Resident Return Visa, Tourist Visa and then Citizenship
My family and I have been Ben's clients for 10 years now. It started with the extension of Business sponsor visa of my parents and soon Ben was the representative for our entire family. I still remember, from the beginning Ben had been very clear, strategic, and optimistic in his approach while lodging our applications. He was always there for questions and ambiguities. He was always proactive and found alternatives when we were stuck with no solutions. We always made informed decision - thanks to him. We would blindly select Ben as our representative, any day, we have an Immigration issue or have to lodge an application with the Department. He is very competent and thorough in his work. I cannot thank Ben enough for everything he did for me & my family and highly recommend him. Thanks a million Ben for all your support and assistance in our difficult times.”
Employer Sponsored, Parent Visa, Citizenship
We, at Rajdhani Indian Restaurant on the Central Coast, have been using the immigration services of Immigration Downunder since 2012. The introduction was accidental through an advertisement in the Central Coast Express Advocate. The first meeting with Kelly and Ben was absolutely reassuring, they helped us sponsor one of our first Cooks. Working both with Kelly and Ben is extremely easy and fulfilling as they have always helped us with each step of the Visa Process. Ben is always a call or an email away and is happy to resolve any of our most difficult queries with utmost ease and logic. I have found both Kelly and Ben to be very open minded, easy to deal with and extremely helpful. The major groundwork is done by them and once the basic information is shared with them, they then take over the process right up to the finality of the application. I strongly recommend Immigration Downunder for all Visa related services; I am sure you will not regret using their services.
Employer Sponsored Visas – Temporary & Permanent
My partner and I used Immigration Downunder for both our 457 skilled worker visa and our application for permanent residency. There is no doubt in our minds that the process would have been significantly more confusing, scary, difficult, and quite possibly unsuccessful without Ben's help. Ben was thorough, detailed and answered all of our questions. He was patient and took time to relieve our anxieties particularly in confusing times and changing situations. I would not only recommend that anyone attempting to immigrate get a lawyer to assist with the process, but I would specifically recommend Immigration Downunder as a service that is worth every penny.
Employer Sponsored Visa – Temporary & Permanent
We chose Immigration Downunder for our spouse visa application as Joe had already had a great experience with them before with a work visa. From the beginning to the end of our visa application Ben and Kelly demonstrated their expertise in this area and they made us feel confident in our application. We also felt they went above and beyond our expectations, by helping us to lodge our initial application in a short time frame to assist us in starting the process on-shore before Joe needed to travel again for work. We are pleased to say we were successful with our application and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Immigration Downunder to others.
