Australia’s Skilled Independent Migration Visa Application Program is managed via Expression of Interest (EOI) submission Point-based SkillSelect Program. It ranks the EOI of the invited applicant based on their score that is determined by the details within their EOI submission.

Typically, it is known that the minimum score requirement should be at least 65 points or higher, if possible. However, achieving such scores does not automatically guarantee the applicant a 189 subclass visa – a type of Visa famously known for allowing permanent work permits and residency in Australia to foreign skilled professionals and individuals.

The Procedure of Creating an Expression of Interest (EOI)

Invited applicants can visit the official website of the Department of Home Affairs of Australia. Thereon, navigate to the Visa section and access the Working in Australia section to choose SkillSelect.
