Skilled migration visas are designed for individuals who have the skills and qualifications that are in demand in Australia. These visas allow individuals to live and work in Australia permanently. To be eligible for a skilled migration visa, applicants must meet certain requirements, such as having a certain level of English proficiency, completing a skills assessment, and having their occupation listed on the relevant occupation list.

There are several types of skilled migration visas, including the Skilled Independent Visa, the Skilled Nominated Visa, and the Skilled Regional Visa. Each visa has different requirements and eligibility criteria.

The application process for skilled migration visas can be complex and time-consuming. Applicants must submit a range of documents, including their skills assessment, proof of their English proficiency, and evidence of their work experience.
