Australia lacks experienced and qualified trades workers and hence many skilled workers from other countries are allowed to migrate there for employment purpose. If you want to migrate to Australia for employment purpose, you must know the process in details. To begin with, you must choose an occupation that is mentioned in the Skilled Occupation List (SOL). The list contains a wide range of professions which include chefs, automobile industry, construction business and much more. Just check whether your occupation is included in the SOL list. If it is not there, there is no reason to get worried as you can still apply for migration if you get sponsorship from a territory or state government. You can get the benefit of the state migration plans and your occupation can come within the occupations mentioned by some state migration plans. When the paperwork starts, you will have to go through a trade test. Here you will have to show the proof that you have studied and worked for 5 years in the trade in which you are applying. In the next step, an interview will be conducted through Skype at some predetermined time and you will be asked how you will manage some tasks in your trade. Sometimes, practical tests are also conducted in some licensed trade just to see how much skilled you are on the subject. After this, you will have to pass the Migration Skills Assessment test. Under this, you will have to show a work experience of 3 years and a formal qualification in your trade. If you do not have any formal qualification then you need to show 6 years of work experience in the trade in which you are applying. In the skilled migration points test, you are supposed to get 60 points. Scoring of points depends on a number of factors which include the age of the applicant, proven skills in your work experience, ability to speak and write fluent and correct English, state nomination and much more. After getting the required points, you cannot apply directly for General skilled migration Visa. You will have to apply through SkillSelect. After getting the proper invitation from SkillSelect, the applicant will have 60 days timing to apply for a visa. Once the application is approved, you will have to do police and health checkups within 12 months. Once all is cleared, you are permitted to migrate to Australia for employment.
