Australian Visa Changes To SkillSelect

The “Australian Visa Changes To SkillSelect” was a major headline quote for most of 2012 and start of 2013. This news is relevant even today and it is going around spreading around like forest fire. The people who had initially registered serious apprehensions about the effectivity of functional aspect of the new system have started accepting it as a more viable option for migrating to this southern hemisphere country.

In the nutshell of the things, Australia has grossly changed the way it controls and monitors inbound migration of people under skills and business with incorporation of large scale modifications in the mainstay migration policy structure.

The modifications introduced do not only include redefining the procedure in totality but also induction and incorporation of newly constituted migration sub classifications. The intent has though remained somehow similar i.e. encouraging entry of qualified people into the domestic labor pool. The new concept establishes and clarifies one fact assertively that the authorities are interested in weeding out in appropriate and unsuitable profiles and people (how highly qualified they may be) at the entry level itself. The linking of the new initialization system with the required trades tabulation strives to ensure that the people who actually place their request for migration are those who are practicing in the trades and professions that are specifically required in domestic labor pool in federal or provincial perspective.

The migrants who do not have relevant trade code references from the trade lists – SOL or CSOL cannot create their digital profile in form of EOIs on SkillSelect For Australian Visa.

What  if people create profile on basis of a misquoted trade code from SOL and are selected? This aspect has also been duly care of by the authorities. The applicants must subject evidences of their academic accomplishments and professional employment exposure to an evaluation study by an assessment body authorized by the government of Australia and having jurisdiction over the occupational premise of applicants.

The candidate will not be advanced to the next stage unless he or she submits a positive assessment advice to that effect. The assessment process has been pitched as a preliminary and the positive advice reference will help an EOI to score marks for academic pursuals and professional job exposure.

The other aspect that has been duly taken care by the authorities in the very initial stage is making candidates substantiate their English language compatibility with the desired Australian language standards. Linguistic competence of the migrants had been on priority for the government which wanted entry of such people who did not suffer from communication handicap and could work competently on jobs and positions they had indicated in their primary applications.

In the SkillSelect due care has been taken to pursue people to submit evidences of their linguistic skills by way of writing an IELTS examination and submitting the scores attained in the EOI.

What if people submitted fictitious scores and advice references? This is taken as misrepresentation. Information supplied in EOI forms part of application and any deviation from stated details is be accepted by the authorities and the EOI is rejected.

The prelims must be completed in advance so that in case of selection for next round applicants can reply within stipulated 60 days. If the applicants fail to comply by with the 2 months deadline the invitation is considered cancelled in Australian SkillSelect Visa process.

Vision of inviting business community in form of business owners and investing entities and individuals has also remained on top priority.  Business migration has also been allocated separate classification under SkillSelect Australian Visa procedure.
