General Skilled Migration (GSM) represents a large stream of permanent Migration to Australia and is developed with an objective of attracting skilled migrants to Australia. GSM requires all applicants to meet certain ‘threshold ‘criteria. Further, some GSM subclasses require applicants to undergo formal skills assessment to ensure their skills meet the Australian standards in their nominated occupation. The nominated occupation must be on the Department of Immigration and Border protections relevant occupation list.
GSM visa subclasses are points tested visas. As part of the visa process the applicant is required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) through the SkillSelect portal. The EOI enables the applicant to provide sufficient minimum information like given names and surname, date of birth, country of citizenship, qualifications, and level of English language ability, nominated occupation, employment history and other attributes that can help you to obtain more points. SkillSelect will then assess your eligibility and if deemed successful, you will receive an invitation to apply for the visa you expressed interest in.
