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. We do not process Visa Applications, as our focus is on complex migration dispute and litigation matters. The Migration Lawyers at Navado Lawyers & Solicitors can advise and assist you in migration dispute matter for a General Skilled Visa.
