AUSTRALIA SKILL SELECT IMMIGRATION PROGRAM

OVERVIEW

The Australia Skill Select Immigration Program is a major program that has made significant changes in the skilled immigration functionality. This program is an overhaul of the complete skilled migration system.

IMPLEMENTATION

The program was implemented on 1st July 2012, it strives to completely change the way the Australian authorities look for immigrants. This new and ambitious immigration initiative is Aussie Labor pool demand centric and would help the authorities effectively address structural deficiencies (based on Skilled Occupation List) in country’s labor market to a great extent. The program will also help the states and regions to locate qualified people with suitable profiles for nominations and settlement in regional parts of the country.

 ADVANTAGES

  • Australia Skill Select is an extremely useful online facility from the Government of Australia to improve its national Immigration system and help skilled professionals, from across the globe, to move to the country, in a much better manner.
  • The facility introduced by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) reveals how the nation ultimately administers and manages its skilled, business and investor immigration plans. The innovative online facility enables the trained manpower from abroad to be located by the regional administrations and the national job providers / firms, for the purpose of skilled migration to the nation. It also ensures that the immigration and visa plan, meant for qualified candidates, is based on Oz’s particular economic needs.
  • The facility helps Canberra to manage, in a much better manner, the applicants who submit submissions for skilled migration. Not only the administration thus gets to manage the overseas movement of people to Australia, it is also enabled to welcome people when it feels like and also in the numbers which could suit its requirements. That all this helps the DIBP to process a visa-petition relatively swiftly cannot be refuted.
  • Skill Select also ensures that the deficiency of skilled people, plaguing the many regions / states of the country, is positively addressed. The program also makes it possible for the aspirants to illustrate that they are not only well prepared to reside in a given region of Oz but also get professionally engaged therein.
  • The program has proved to be boon for Australian firms / recruiters fighting regional skill scarcities. The program has also proved highly valuable for the Australian state and territory administrations and now they are busy settling the migrants across the regional Australia.

Note:  Under the new arrangement, now it has been made compulsory for every migrant--motivated with the points based skilled migration and / or business investment and innovation application plans--to suitably submit an EOI, before they gain an invite, so that they can present a submission for a Permanent Residence (PR) Visa for Australia.

HOW IT WORKS

Skill select is a platform for skilled immigrants that will function similar to a pre-stored database of the talent and skills. An Expression of Interest (EOI) document will play a pivotal role in the functioning of this system. This document will be created free of charge by the aspiring immigrants for skilled migration based on the nominated skills in skilled occupation list (SOL) or business investment in form of a profile that will be stored on the skill select platform for a period of 2 years.

There will be certain preliminaries that will have to be completed before a candidate creates a profile in the EOI pool:

  • Assess skills from the designated evaluation agency
  • English linguistic skills through the appropriate language test (IELTS).

The profile created will be stored on this system for a period of 2 years or till the applicant receives and invitation to file application for visa. The application will lapse if the applicant is not chosen within 2 years of the filing of the EOI application.

The immigration agencies, employers and the regional governments will be able access the database of the applicants opting for employer sponsored visa and state nomination. Those selected can file for immigration application. The independent skilled migration will rely on the point based evaluation of a profile and qualified profiles securing minimum cutoff mark will be ranked according to the marks secured by a particular profile.

The highest ranked profiles filed in the EOI pool - will get more attention and priority in the invitation process. After each round of the invitation process a new minimum cut-off mark will be hence announced for the convenience of the applicants and new invitations sent accordingly. One of the major advantages expected of this system is substantially reducing the processing times of an application, which will help the Department of Immigration and citizenship to weed out deadwood and focus on practical and workable profiles.
