Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

More great news is coming for Business and Skilled Migration program applicants! The latest news update is Queensland Government to re-open the Business and Skilled Migration Program on 1 February 2021.

What is BSMQ?

Business and Skilled Migration Queensland (BSMQ) is the state nominating body for the Queensland Government and part of the business unit of Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ). Working with the Department of Home Affairs, BSMQ nominates successful skilled and business applicants who want to migrate and establish themselves in Queensland.

If you wish to migrate to Queensland under the skilled migration program, you must meet the minimum required point which is 65 according to the Australian regulation. Hence, BSMQ will not select any applicants that score below 65. Besides, you must be sure that your nominated occupation is listed on the Queensland Skilled Occupation List (QSOL).

Queensland Skilled Program

The Queensland Government also announced to re-open the standard 491 and 190 programs for onshore applicants only on 1 February 2021. Important note regarding the EOI (Expression of Interest) application; the applicants do not need to lodge an EOI before 1 February 2021, as the EOI will not be picked up. 

Besides, the Queensland Government has opened the 491 – SBO (Small Business Owners) pathway since 18 December 2020. Important note for 491 – SBO pathway applicants; they need to submit a 491 – SBO Assessment Form prior to submitting an EOI. Once you submit the assessment form, your EOI will be picked up.

What does it mean for Skilled Migrants who wish to live in Queensland?

It has been six months since the Queensland Government closed its BSMQ program on 1 July 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic that forced Australian Government to temporarily close their Business and Skilled Migration program.

By re-opening the Program, as an entrepreneur or a skilled worker, you get your chance back to continue your business or your work. Evenmore, if you are eligible for one of the visa streams mentioned above, your visa processing will be prioritized.

Even though the skilled Program is only open for onshore applicants, it still brings a positive change for people who lost their jobs due to COVID-19 and are stuck in Australia. Working in Queensland can be a good option for you if you wish to continue to stay in Australia, especially in Queensland.
