Australia Immigration Important Ingredients What is Australia points system?

Australia and Australia Immigration has been discussed n number of times, but what has not been discussed up till now is the points required for the immigration, what are the different categories on which points are awarded? How should one score good points to make the application form strong? The points plays a crucial role in deciding your fate for the permanent residency visa invitation.

A one point less or a one point more can either reject or accept your eligibility for the Permanent residency to Australia. So, it is very important to know about the initial stages for working out your eligibility for different visa types.

First of all you need to make sure that the job on the basis of which you are applying to permanently settle in Kangaroo nation is in high demand and you are highly skilled for that particular job opening.

Although this only matters for some visa subclasses like Subclass 189, subclass 190, subclass 489 where the primary applicant has to be highly qualified and experienced but if I talk about the family sponsor visas there, it is not necessary to be highly skilled or experienced to get Australia PR, the sponsor must be credible enough to call its family members.

Talking about the Australia subclass 189, 190 and 489 which are the general skilled migrant programs that allows you to live and work in Australia, access medical facilities, education for a period of time depending upon different visa categories.

It is highly dispensable for the applicants who are applying through subclass 189, 190, and 489 to have their occupation listed in Medium and Long Term strategic skill list (MLTSSL) 2018. Having the occupation listed in MLTSSL 2018 means you might be eligible for the subclass 189 or 190. Both these visas have the status of permanent residency. The subclass 189 is an independent visa which allows you to stay anywhere in Canada from day one whereas subclass 190 and subclass 489 are the sponsored visas which expects you to stay at a particular place for which you have applied PR for at least 2 years and after that can live and work anywhere in Australia just like subclass 189.

Similarly the other list is the Short Term Strategic Skill List (STSSL) 2018. The applicants whose job is not listed in MLTSSL can check whether their job is listed in STSSL or not, if listed then the applicant can only apply in subclass 190.

The lists holds the equal importance in calculating the points system because if you are not sure about your occupation listed in which list, how would you able to decide your points? You have to in the list to be eligible for the calculation of the points.
