Skilled assessments

All applicants must have a positive skill assessment for their nominated occupation. Skill assessment is a mandatory pre- requisite for all permanent General Skill Migration visa sub classes. You need to apply for the right industry body or assessment authority for the assessment. The assessment criterion is different from one occupation to other.

Currently most of the skill assessments for former international students come in two stages. Usually the 1st stage allows you to apply for 485 Graduate Temporary Skilled Visa and the successful completion of the second stage is required for permanent visas.

IELTS or other acceptable proof of English Proficiency is in some case a pre- requisite for the skill assessment.

Eureka can assist you with your skill assessment as a part of your journey to Australian Permanent Residency . Simply fill our FREE ASSESSMENT to check your eligibility.

If you do not have a valid visa….

Unlike under the previous regulations former international students will not be granted a bridging visa unless they apply for one of the Temporary Graduate Visa. At all times you must maintain a valid visa to remain in Australia.

In any such case, Eureka is happy to help you through. Australia offers over 400 visas . Eureka’s mission is to assist you to realize your dream through the best available visa.

What you need ….

Applicants must provide all the documents, the Department of Immigration requires at the time of application. Failure to do so may result in your application is refused or can be invalid. If your application is refused, you may be barred from making further visa applications while you are in Australia and you may be asked to leave the country.

If your application is held invalid, you may not be able to lodge a fresh application on shore as the six month period from the date of completion of your studies has expired.

Applicants therefore must make sure that they have all requirements specific to each visa subclass ready. You are more than welcome to talk to us.
