SkillSelect Migration

SkillSelect is a new and innovative change to how Australia handles skilled migration. The program acts to guarantee the skilled migration program is supporting the demands of the Australian economy. The program will assist the Australian Government to oversee who can apply for skilled migration, when they can apply and in what volumes.

Because of this program, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship is predicting a substantial reduction in the processing period of visa applications. As well as the primary purpose, SkillSelect has also been introduced in order to sustain regional industries and business by diminishing skill shortages.

SkillSelect grants foreign nationals planning to migrate to Australia the opportunity to express an interest in living and working in regional Australia. This will prove to be of exceptional aid to employers suffering from regional skill shortages as well as state and territory government bodies seeking to settle migrants in regional and rural Australia.

The primary function of SkillSelect will allow foreign nationals intending on migrating to Australia to register their details via what is called an Expression of Interest (EOI). Destine migrants can then be located and subsequently nominated for employment and an entitling visa by Australian employers or state and territory governments. The types of details needed to lodge an Expression of Interest are as follows:
