Check Your Eligibility

To establish a person’s eligibility to migrate to Australia as a professional worker, Australia uses a points-based system. Keep in mind that, while 65 points is the bare minimum for Australia PR eligibility, the higher your score on the eligibility calculation, the more likely you are to be invited to apply for permanent residency in Australia.

Under the Australia points calculator, the General Skilled Migration program employs a point-based approach to identify migrants with the appropriate skills. The following criteria are used to award points to applicants:

Skilled workers and self-employed people can migrate to Australia if they have skill sets which are badly needed by that country’s economy. The Australia Points Calculator can be checked by aspiring migrants of Australia themselves by taking the general skilled migration self-assessment test.

Points are awarded to people who are aged under 50, have proficiency in English language, have substantial work experience in their nominated occupations, which need to be there in the country’s SOL (Skilled Occupation List).

Applicants should score at least 65 points to be considered qualified by the DIBP (Department of Immigration and Border Protection), an Australian government entity which handles all immigration related matters.

While the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is the most widely used English test in Australia, you can also take and submit test results for –

  • TOEFL iBT (Test of English as a Foreign language, internet-based test)
  • CAE (Certificate in Advanced English)
  • PTE (Pearson Tests of English)
  • OET (Occupational English Test)
