Skilled Independent SC189


The Australian economy experiences growth every year. Accordingly there becomes a need to adjust the Australian Skilled Migration List with occupations that cannot be filled by Australians to achieve certain goals which are set out by government.

Migrants working in Australia on a number of different visas often help towards the government achieving these goals set each year. These visas which are granted under strict conditions can be obtained once the criteria has been met.

The new Australian Skilled Occupation List 2017 (SOL) is being replaced by the Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and has been reviewed to fill potential gaps in the Australian economy that needs to be filled.

You must be under the age of 50 years at the time of making application and have competent English
language Skills. You must have skills or qualifications comparable to Australian Qualification in a skilled
occupation on MLTSSL.
During processing of the Subclass 189 visa, it is assessed on a points system and 60 points are required to
qualify as well as meeting the standard conditions.
Points are awarded in the following categories:
English Language
Australian and Overseas Work Experience
Australian Study
Community Language
Regional Australian Study
Spouse Skills
Professional Year
