About Australian migration


The most common way that people migrate to Australia is by being sponsored by their employer. The Australian authorities want to see that anyone that enters their country can fully support themselves.

However, over recent years Australian migration has been possible without employer sponsorship thanks to what is called the General Skills Migration program. This is designed to encourage younger people aged between 18 and 45 to migrate to Australia.

The General Skills Migration program enables anyone that has a skill that is contained on the Skilled Occupation List to enter Australia as a migrant worker. The system uses points, with each skill having a set number of points allocated to it. You will need to have a certain number of points in order to successfully complete your Australian migration. For instance, being able to speak good English will earn you additional points.

To ensure your Australian migration goes smoothly, you must comply with all the visa and entry regulations that are currently in force. There are many specialist migration agencies that can help you with this, or you can approach a solicitor that specialises in immigration law.

A solicitor can also be useful if you have special circumstances that could have an impact on your ability to successfully complete an Australian migration application. An immigration solicitor can give you detailed advice and also interpret any legal aspect of the immigration process you do not fully understand.

A solicitor can also be invaluable if your application for Australian migration has been turned down. You can dispute the decision by the Australian authorities in court if you feel the law has not been fairly applied to your application. Never try and handle this type of case yourself, as immigration law is highly complex.
