Migration Process in brief
Generally, the migration process has two stages. In certain occasions, it can be a three-stage process.
This is the initial stage to evaluate the skills the applicant has is comparable to that of the required level in Australia. We do not take up a case unless we are convinced that the educational qualifications and the work experience meet the migration criteria.
This could be either a Relative sponsorship or State/Regional sponsorship. In certain cases a Sponsorship will be required in order for the client to meet the points test or in the case of State sponsorships to expedite the process.
Once a positive skills assessment and sponsorship is obtained, the visa application will be lodged with the appropriate processing centre.
Time taken for the migration process
Total time taken for the process can be about one year. However, the process can vary depending upon the profession, visa type etc.
English language requirement for migration
All applicants applying for Australian Migration must have competent English language skills. This is measured by an IELTS test which can be completed through the British Council in most countries. All professionals must score at least 6 in each component, but in most cases 7 in each component would enable one to meet the points test.
