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.

Skilled Points Test Pass Mark Increased to 65 Points

Skilled Points Test Pass Mark Increased to 65 Points

Skilled Points Test Pass Mark Increased

As of 1 July 2018, the pass mark for the skilled points test has been increased to 65 points.

To recap, you may be given points for a number of reasons, including your:

  • skills
  • age
  • English language ability
  • occupation
  • Australian work experience and Australian qualifications.

Other reasons such as: specialist education qualification, accredited in a community language, study in certain regional Australia or a low population growth metropolitan area, partner skill qualification, as well as professional year in Australia.

These skilled points test changes apply to all intending applicants who are interested in applying for the following visas:

  • Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)
  • Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
  • Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489).

In addition to that, the maximum age for claiming points for skilled partners has also been reduced from under 50 to under 45 years of age.

Recent amendments may also impact some state governments if you are seeking state nomination on your EOI.

Raising the threshold is done to further filter out less skilled migrants, and impacts people from all nationalities.

All of these changes are consistent with the Australian Government’s announcement on 18 April 2017 and please note that the higher your points are the better your rank would be againsts other intending migrants.

To be safe you generally need 70 to 75 points in your skilled points test results, depending on your nominated occupation and visa target.

What does this mean to you?

If you already submit an EOI thru the SkillSelect but you have not been invited yet, you will be subject to the new pass mark of 65.

Do not be alarmed, immigration makes changes all the time in order to translate their needs for skilled migrants to policy.

As long as you stay abreast of all of most recent amendments then you are good to go.
