Looking for an Australia work visa?
If you've managed to read this far, you already know a thing or two about the basic requirements for a skilled visa.
You saw there are two options - you can put up your hand to relocate as an independent or as a sponsored applicant.
So why independent, you may ask?
Because you're on your own and rely on your skills, age, knowledge of English, studies, profession and the length of time you've been practicing it.
No one is offering a helping hand. You're the best you can be. And the best you can be must meet the points test. See here what this means: immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/points-tested-migration-fact-sheet.pdf
But wait, there's someone else who can help you.
If you are in a relationship, that is. Your spouse or partner.
If he or she wants to apply with you, they can score some points too and add to the ones you claim.
But to score points we're back to the basic requirements - they must meet them too. For the specifics see here: immi.gov.au/skills/skillselect/index/visas/subclass-189/#tab-5
This Australia work visa offers you permanent residency with no conditions attached. It is the best visa you can get, it you meet the requirements.

To be eligible, you have to satisfy a number of requirements for various items, such as:
The best age bracket to be in is 25 to 32, you'll get the most points. The worst is between 45 and 49 - no points at all. But with age come additional qualifications and experience, which might compensate for the lack of points based on age.
If English is your native language, you're already competent, no exam for you. But if you need to demonstrate that your command of English is much better than competent you must sit the exam and get higher marks.
The points test changes from time to time, so make sure to do your research and visit the department of immigration Australia website.
This is the best Australia work visa as it comes with full rights:
If you don't travel don't worry about the 5 years. You don't need to take any action.
But if you do want to roam around the world, apply for a resident return visa.
Or better apply for Australian citizenship.
