GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION
Migratory law: “Migrants key to prosperity”
It is a program designed to attract the skilled professionals and technicians with the required experience and skills to solve the lack of qualified workforcethat the Australian growth and economy demand.
The requirements for skilled migrants are found in the GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION (GSM) Program. This is one of the most complete paths to be granted a residence visa in Australia. This option may be carried out from your home country, if this alternative applies, or it may be started in your home country and continued within Australia during a student visa (Temporary Visa) or any other temporary visa.
The number of visas on the GSM Program provision is part of the Australian government annual migration program . For the fiscal year July 2019 – June 2020, the Department of Home Affairs has estimated a goal of 160.000 places. For this fiscal term, the emphasis is to promote migration to regions and decrease the migration to cities like Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane. For the 2020-2021 fiscal year, it is expected that the places will be assigned in the federal budget to be announced in October 2020.
Since 2012, the General Skilled Migration Program takes place through the Skill Select selection model, which allows the candidate with the highest scores and in order of arrival to be chosen.
