One of the major changes is that (save for a few exceptions) you cannot initiate an Application for a Skilled Visa. Only those who are invited to this type of visa can apply.
A free and easy to use online tool, called an Expression of Interest, has been established, which allows anyone who is skilled to let the Department know about their interest.
However, this kind of migration requires a certain strategy to be successful with it. You cannot simply apply and hope for the best and expect to do well.
You will need to be able to back up any claims that are part of your application. If you cannot, then your visa may be refused and you could be banned from re-entry. You will be found guilty of providing false information, and that’s not something the Department takes lightly.
Eligibility is determined with strict standards. You are going to have to show eligibility by passing a 60-point standard assessment. This has been reduced from 65, which will help. The occupation you have also has to fall under the one of the categories of the Skilled Occupation List
Australia will make determinations as to which occupations are necessary and what should be included in its Skilled Migration program.
The Expression of Interest will remain valid for up to two years. You can lose points if you update it, though.
The best reason for filing an EOI (Expression of Interest) on your own behalf is that it gives you a lot of freedom and flexibility. You aren’t tied down to a specific employer, so you can go where you like when you migrate.
