The main purpose of introducing the SkillSelect program is to target those applicants who are capable of fulfilling the vacancies in several occupations.
In other words, the new SkillSelect can be concluded as online tools that catalyze the Australia immigration program by reducing the time required to process visa. Those applicants who are interested to apply for the said program need to make sure that they have already submitted their EOI first.
