The end of the current financial year for Australia immigration is nearing. It is a great time for aspirants to prepare for any changes that might crop up on the 1st of July.
Here are some of the things that potential Australia PR applicants should prepare for:
- Manage your finances
The visa fees for Australia are going to increase by 5.4% from 1st July. If possible, it is advisable to finalize your Visa forms and necessary documents by 30th June. However, if it is not possible, then you should start managing your finances right away. You will then not fall short of any funds while lodging your Visa.
- Consider applying for Regional Visas
Australia is laying more and more emphasis on encouraging migration to its regional areas. Due to this increased emphasis, migrants who are already in these regional areas have an advantage. With the Govt. coming up with new schemes and Visas for the regional areas, it is advisable to consider applying for Regional Visas.
International students who complete their studies from a Regional University also brighten their prospects of getting an Australia PR.
- Gather your documents
The State Nomination quotas and Skill Select quotas reset themselves on 1st July. Thus visa places will open up on the Subclass 189, 190 and 489 visas.
Getting an Invitation to Apply under the Subclass 189 is getting tougher day by day. Thus, Australia PR aspirants should look to apply for an EOI as soon as possible.
The states will also review their Skilled Occupation lists on 1st July, as per SBS News. Thus, if you are able to submit an EOI for a Subclass 190 or 489 before that, you would get an edge over the others.
So, Australia PR aspirants should try and have their Skill Assessment ready. They should also gather other documents like employer references ready so that they can submit their EOI well in time.
It is also advisable to complete your English proficiency test instead of waiting until the last minute.
- Be flexible
Australia, traditionally, makes most of its immigration changes on 1st July. Applicants should be prepared to face any last minute changes. Try and be flexible and do not panic due to some unforeseen changes.
- Get Expert advice
Your Visa success depends largely on the accuracy of your eligibility and your claims. Thus it is highly advisable that you speak to an Immigration Expert to provide you with the right guidance. It is always better to get your application right the first time. Redoing things will only cost you more time and money.
