One of the goals of people to Australia whether to work or study is to get PR or Permanent Residency. Of course, there are many benefits to be had by becoming a Permanent Australian Resident.
How to Get Australian PR Permanent Residents
But in this article, we will discuss 10 effective tips for getting PR, let's look carefully at the following points:
1. Conduct a Skills Assessment - an ability assessment
The first step an applicant must take is to find out whether the job list he is looking for is included in the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) and whether his skills can earn points on the skill assessment. Skills assessment criteria differ from job to job.
In general, what is assessed is education, work experience, and English language skills. If they meet the requirements above, applicants can apply for an Australian General Skills Visa or a skills visa.
Or if the job list is not on SOL, you can search for job listings on STSOL (Short Term Skilled Job List). There are around 600 job listings at STSOL which will increase a person's chances of getting the chance to work in Australia.
However, if the type of work is at STSOL, the applicant must obtain additional sponsorship from the state government or sponsoring company.
2. Know the Skills Selection Procedure
All applicants must go through a skills selection procedure. The first step in this skills selection system, all applicants are required to apply for an Expression of Interest (EOI) and receive an invitation from the Ministry of Home Affairs before they apply for a General Skilled Migration Visa.
3. With a Temporary Postgraduate Visa
The Temporary Postgraduate Visa (subclass 485) provides an additional 18 - 48 months according to the duration of your previous study or more to work and live in Australia after your studies.
A provisional pass can be obtained if the applicant has completed at least 2 years of study in Australia and has an IELTS score of 6.0 in all components.
With this Postgraduate Temporary Visa, applicants will benefit, including:
additional time to live in Australia,
applicants can seek full-time employment and gain study rights;
applicants can look for corporate sponsors so that later they will add points;
the opportunity to be nominated for a State.
4. Nominated by the State
State nominations can be very profitable for international students because:
Earn 5 additional points for sponsorship for living in a metropolitan area and 10 for living in that area;
The scope of work is wider (from STSOL);
Gets priority at SkillSelect.
5. English skills
To apply for homework, all applicants need an IELTS score of at least 7.0 for all components namely, reading, speaking, listening, and writing.
6. Collect Work Experience Points
Work experience will contribute up to 20 points. This work experience must be in accordance with the educational background. The longer the work experience, the more points you will get.
7. Study in Australia
By studying in Australia, you will add extra points when applying for PR. The level of study either Diploma, Bachelor, or Masters will also affect the points because each level of study has different points.
8. Company sponsors
By getting sponsorship from the company, it will increase the applicant's chances of becoming a PR. With this corporate sponsorship, applicants can apply for several previous work visas, including:
A temporary skills deficiency visa (subclass 482) is a 2 - 4 year work visa which requires a minimum IELTS score of 5.0. The sponsoring company must meet financial and training requirements to become a sponsor.
ENS (Employer Nomination Scheme) is a permanent visa, which can be applied after obtaining 482 work visas for 3 years.
The RSMS (Regional Skilled Migration Scheme) is a permanent work visa that can be applied when you receive a job offer in regional Australia.
9. Get the Right Bridging Visa
Getting the right Bridging visa is not easy and takes a long time. As the name implies, this bridging visa serves as a bridge between the previous visa and the next visa.
This misstep in the visa process results in the applicant's previous visa expiring and even the applicant could skip the period of stay or be illegal.
Of course, a misstep in this process will prevent an applicant from becoming PR. Contacting a registered migration agent is the perfect solution for applying for a bridging visa.
10. Always Up To Date
