Skilled Visa Australia (General Skilled Migration)
February 6, 2020

About General Skilled Migration 

 Australia is always on the lookout for migrants who have skills to offer in the work force. General Skilled Migration (GSM) visas are highly in demand because they authorize skilled and employable individuals to full rights to live and work in Australia. These individuals can then sponsor their partners or children/stepchildren as dependents on their visa. 

 

Am I Eligible?  

General Skilled Migration visas are typically point tested, meaning you must meet the required points to qualify for a visa. You may also be eligible if you possess a nominated occupation/skill in the relevant occupation list.

Our Process

Step 1: Book Your Consultation  

The first essential step in your migration process is to book a consultation. This is the stage where we identify the best and most suitable pathway for your circumstances.  

 

Step 2: Personalized Migration Action Plan (MAP) 
After attending a consultation with us, we will provide you with a personalized MAP. This includes a checklist where we tell you how to prepare relevant documents and samples if necessary.  

Step 3: Collection, Review, and Drafting  

An application is not just about the submission of documents – it also includes the process of reviewing the documents to make sure that they are up to standard. What we mean by this is to ensure that every piece of documentation that we submit has been carefully reviewed by our migration specialists based on the standard of the Department of Immigration.  

Step 4: Lodgment and Submission  

Here at Think Visa, we prepare what we like to call, Decision Ready Applications. This means that applications prepared by us are not only of high standard but also organized in a manner that is easy for the case officer to decide on and therefore significantly reducing processing times for you. There are circumstances that might require you to provide additional information in which we try to anticipate beforehand and submit as well, however if that arises our services also includes resolving matters for you before a formal decision is made.
