General Skilled Visas:

Overview FAQs Articles Locations

The Australian Government values people who can make a positive contribution to the Australian economy. If an individual has a particular skill that will make a positive contribution to the Australian economy, that individual may apply for a General Skilled Visa, assuming all of the requirements of the Visa are able to be met. The Government has made available a number of different classes of General Skilled Visa to accommodate various circumstances. The Migration Lawyers at Navado Lawyers & Solicitors can advise and assist you in your application for a General Skilled Visa.

Eligibility criteria for a General Skilled Visa

To apply for a General Skilled Visa, you must satisfy a number of requirements including:

  • Age;
  • Competent English Skills;
  • Educational and Other Qualifications; and
  • Work Experience.

Generally, you must be under the age of fifty (50) and be highly skilled in an area that will make a positive contribution to Australia. Our Migration Lawyers are familiar with the requirements for eligibility for a General Skilled Visa and will be able to provide quality legal advice on your individual circumstances

Examples of General Skilled Visas

Depending on your circumstances and qualifications, the type of General Skilled Visa that you will need to apply for will vary. There are a number of different General Skilled Visas. 

For example, if you are already resident in Australia and want to apply for a General Skilled Visa, some examples of the type of available visas include:

  • Skilled Independent (Residence) Visa – a permanent visa if you are an overseas student with an Australian qualification as a result of at least two (2) years study;
  • Skilled Sponsored (Residence) Visa – a permanent visa if you currently hold a temporary visa and have skills that are in demand in Australia; and
  • Skilled Regional (Residence) Visa – a permanent visa for current visa holders who have lived in Australia for two (2) years and have worked for at least one (1) year in a Specified Regional Area.

The above only represent some of the available visas. Our Migration Lawyers can look at all available visa options and advise you accordingly, not only on the eligibility criteria but also the restrictions and conditions of each visa. We can also assist you with the Application process, once you have made a decision and provided instructions on which way you wish to proceed.  We invite you to come in and speak to one of our qualified Migration Lawyers. The first consultation is free.  You can meet with our lawyers in our Sydney Office or in one of our branches, as listed under the “Locations” tab above.
