It’s not uncommon for skilled and qualified individuals from Dubai who get to experience Australia to opt for Australia immigration. They do so convinced of the better opportunities to build a career as they aspire to have.
Australia immigration is preferred by those who are willing to move to Australia for the country’s higher quality of life, peaceful environment, and stable economy. Moreover, it’s easier to get an Australia PR visa compared to many other countries of the world.
Australia immigration system
Australia immigration system is a points-based system. This means that every immigration candidate is given a score based on various factors like age, work experience, education, and language skills.
The first criterion that you must meet to be eligible for Australia immigration is that you must get a score of 65 out of 100 points. Here’s a snapshot of criteria for scoring eligibility points:
|Age (25-33 years)||30|
|Work Experience in Australia (8-10 years)||20|
|Work Experience outside Australia (8-10 years)||15|
|English proficiency (8 bands)||20|
|Education (outside Australia): Doctorate degree||20|
|Study in a regional area||5|
|A year of professional training in a skilled program in Australia||5|
|Accredited in community language||5|
|Subclass 190 visa (State sponsorship)||5|
|Niche skills such as Doctorate or Master’s degree in Australia||5|
As for the occupations eligible for you to apply for to migrate to Australia, you must check the SOL (Skilled Occupation List) or the CSOL (Consolidated SOL). You have to be working in one of the occupations present in this list to be eligible to immigrate to Australia under the Skilled Migration Program.
There are choices of visas that come under the Skilled Migration Stream. The 3 main visa categories under the Skilled Migration Program are the following:
Subclass 189 – Skilled Independent Visa

Subclass 190 – Skilled Nominated Visa
An Australian territory/state nominates you for this visa and you become eligible to apply for it. It’s similar to Subclass 189. The only exception is that you need to have experience in a nominated occupation present on the SOL.
Subclass 491 - Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa
This visa is a replacement for Subclass 489 visa. It’s a pathway to an Australia PR visa. With this visa, you can live, study and work in Australia for 5 years as well as your family. After staying in Australia for 3 years, you will be eligible to apply for an Australia PR visa.
