Both new visa subclasses commenced on 16th November last year.

A lot of skilled professionals are looking for the best Australia visa route and strategies. While the immigration regulations are subject to change from time to time, it is best for professionals like you to have a grip on the best visa option when moving to Australia.

What are the other Australian visas for a skilled migrant like you?

Subclass 189 Visa – Skilled Independent Visa

Skilled Independent Visa (subclass 189) is a permanent visa and is the most popular option for skilled migrants like you who intend to establish a well-off life in Australia. The great advantage with subclass 189 visa is that the skilled migrants don’t need a sponsorship from an employer in Australia.

With an approved subclass 189 visa you’ll be entitled to live, work and study in Australia (on a permanent basis). You’ll also gain additional benefits such as government-subsidised healthcare and social security benefits.

The subclass 189 visa advantage doesn’t stop there. If you meet the relevant eligibility criteria for subclass 189 visa, you’ll have an opportunity for a potential pathway to Australia citizenship.

Subclass 190 Visa – Skilled Nominated Visa

Another viable option for skilled migrants is the Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190). Subclass 190 visa is a permanent visa for skilled migrants who are sponsored by an appropriate State/Territory government. If you’re planning to apply for this visa, you still need to pass a points test and if you have a State/Territory sponsor, you’ll gain a 5 points bonus.

With approved subclass 189 visa you’ll be entitled to live, work and study in Australia (on a daily basis). You’ll also gain additional benefits such as government-subsidised healthcare and social security benefits.
