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.

On Monday 21 December 2020, The Australian government has announced that 2020-21 Victorian skilled visa nomination program (subclass 190 and 491) will recommence on Tuesday, 5 January 2021 with changes in eligibility requirements. As well as, Victoria’s business and investor visa nomination program will reopen on 4 January 2021. If you are interested in migrating to Victoria, this piece of news will be the highlight of your day.

Changes to Victoria BIIP Visa Nominations Criteria

There will be changes added to state nomination criteria; hence, it is best for you to check the latest requirements.

The new requirements aim to improve Victoria’s capacity to find the best businesses and investors in the world who will:

  1. Create new job opportunities for people in Victoria,
  2. Encourage innovation in strategic sectors (digital technologies, advanced manufacturing, health and life sciences, agri-food, new energy and emissions reduction, circular economy and priority precincts),
  3. Generate forward-looking enterprises using their qualifications in the fields of STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine).

In order to have the greatest chance of success, it is crucial for the application to be precise about how your company or investment can support Victoria’s economic recovery or the health response to the pandemic. These changes are made to be aligned with Australia’s 2020-2021 migration program which focused on job creators, those with key skills and migrants who are going to invest in Australia’s future.
