How Does This Visa Work?

When you apply for a Subclass 190 Skilled Independent Visa, you may be in Australia or living overseas. You would need to have a substantive visa or a bridging A, B, or C visa to lodge from within Australia. Once you submit your application from within Australia, you will be issued a bridging visa that will allow you to stay in the country while your visa is being reviewed.

Individuals Who are Eligible for this Visa

General Conditions:

  • Your occupation is on a list of relevant occupations.
  • You have the necessary points for the visa you want to apply for (65 points is the minimum).
  • Age, qualifications, English fluency, work experience in Australia and abroad, qualifications obtained in Australia, state sponsorship, and partner’s qualifications all contribute to points.
  • You must be between the ages of 18 and 45. Different age groups receive different points.
  • Your qualifications should have a positive skills assessment (valid for three years).
  • Took and passed an English language test (IELTS, OET, TOEFL, iBT, PTE Academic, or Cambridge English: Advanced).

The Steps Involved in the Process

Step 1:- Lodgement of the Expression of Interest (EOI)

The EOI is a system that gives the government the power to prioritize and rank potential immigrants according to their merits, choosing the “brightest and best” immigrants and/or candidates to fill labor market shortages. Additionally, it equips the government with the means to adjust the kinds of jobs that are most in demand, limit the number of applicants for those jobs, and control the overall composition of the jobs that are approved each program year.

Step 2:- The Department of Home Affairs will send you an invitation.

Step 3:- Visa applications must be submitted within 60 days of receiving the invitation.
