Australia PR Points Calculator for Subclass 189 visa

by Visa Consultant Immigration Expert

Skilled professionals can migrate to Australia-based on their skills, educational qualifications, and work experience. I designed the general skilled migration program for Australia for skilled individuals or families seeking to permanently move to Australia and address the labor shortage needs of the country. Visa categories under the General Skilled Migration program follow a points-based system to invite applicants to Australia.


The Australia PR points’ calculator determines which candidate is eligible to apply for an Australia PR visa. The minimum score under the general skilled migration program is 65.

Following are the benefits of applying for Australia PR visa from India:

  • ·         access student loans

  • ·       return to Australia from overseas without a valid travel facility (you do not have automatic right of entry to Australia)


The Skilled Independent Subclass 189


The subclass 189 visa is a points-tested permanent residency visa for skilled workers wishing to permanently migrate to Australia. The visa stream does not require you to be sponsored by any employer in Australia or get nominated by an Australian state or territory government.


Skilled Independent visa (Subclass 189) applicants must obtain a minimum of 65 points on the point assessment.
