Along with great lifestyle, Australian Immigration rules are also straight forward and the process is not overly complex. This attracts makes Australia PR Visa attractive to many people around the world.

What Is Australia PR Visa?

Australian PR is nothing but a Permanent Residency Visa. It lets you migrate to Australia, live and work there indefinitely with 5 years multiple entry visa. So, you can travel overseas and enter Australia on the same Visa within the 5 years of the grant date. After 5 years, you can generally renew your PR visa easily provided you meet the conditions.

Primary Requirements for Permanent Residency Visa
1. For applicants from non-English speaking countries, they need to prove their English Competency by appearing for IELTS or PTE test.
2. Since PR is primarily a Skilled Migrant Visa, so you need a skill assessment done by an assessing authority based on your skill category. For example, for IT or Computers & Engineering field applicants, ACS (Australian Computer Society) is the assessing authority. While for skills like Cookery, Plumbing, VETASSESS is the one to verify your skills.
3. Select a Visa category

The most common visa categories for Permanent Visa are:
  • Subclass 189 – Independent Skilled visa
  • Subclass 190 – Nominated  Visa (By State)
  • Subclass 186 – Nominated Visa (By Employer)
4. Once you have selected the Visa Category, you need to choose an occupation from the Skilled Occupation List. This part is a continuation from Step 2 where you select the skills and occupation for skills assessment.
5. Expression of Interest
Once you have your English Test results and Skill Assessment results with you, you need to lodge an expression of interest for the Visa Category and Skilled Occupation that you are applying the visa for. Once the Expression of Interest is successful, you will be sent an invitation to lodge the visa application.
6. Character and other documents
While you are waiting for your invitation to file visa, you can prepare your certificates like Police Check, Date Of Birth, Academic & Professional Qualification certificates. Most of these should have already been done for Skills Assessment.
7. Pay Fees and Lodge Application
