Certain skilled migration visas require an assessment of your skills. Criteria for a skills assessment vary by occupation and there are a large number of skills assessing authorities. In most cases, the skills assessment will be based on the applicant's qualifications and work experience, though in some cases English language ability and registration in Australia is required.
State or Territory Sponsorship
You must nominate an occupation from the current Skills Occupations List if you are nominated by a State or Territory Government.
