VisAustralia would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for Christmas 2016 and for the New Year. It has been another big year for VisAustralia, for the Australian migration program and, above all, for our clients and friends who have been granted visas and who have moved to Australia.
To migrate to Australia there are four simple requirements.
1. You are less than 50 years old;
2. You have a reasonable level of English;
3. Your qualifications and work experience are related to an occupation that is in demand in Australia; and
4. You pass the visa points test.
The Northern Territory Government has added 63 new occupations to its state nomination occupation list ahead of the launch the $5 billion infrastructure projects’ loan scheme for Northern Australia set for launch in July this year.

Did you help crash the Canadian Government's immigration website when the results came through? But do you hate the idea of living with the freezing cold, a summer that lasts for half an hour in a good year and the risk of being eaten by a polar bear? If so, move to Australia!
For accurate professional information and definitive legal advice about your best option for moving to Australia we invite you to arrange a consultation with a VisAustralia expert.
To work or study in Australia you need to have at least upper intermediate English. The only exemption is if you come to Australia to study English!

Applying for state nomination opens the migraton door to a wider range of different occupations than just those on the Skilled Occupations List (SOL). You are required to live in the state that nominates you for the first 2 years but score additional points on the visa points test. Your application will also be decided more quickly.
There is often confusion surrounding state nomination, what it is, what it means, and how it works. This article explains state nomination in more detail.
