Skilled Visa Requirements

There are a few requirements that come into play when applying for a skilled visa for Australia. So be aware of the following factors…

  • Age – you must be under 50 when you apply;
  • English language – you need a competent level of reading, writing, listening and speaking English.
  • Occupation – Your occupation must be found on the skilled occupations list.
  • Skills assessment – You must complete a skills assessment which must be assessed by the Australian assessing authority designated to assess your nominated occupation (which will usually have specific qualifications requirements).
  • Health assessment – you should be of reasonably good health and all applicants must have a medical examination carried out by a panel doctor who is registered with The Australian Immigration Department
  • Character assessment – it’s not all technical – you must also be of good character, which will also be assessed!
