You should begin the process by determining whether or not you would have a good chance of being successful in gaining a permanent residency visa for Australia. Alternatively, you could try to secure a job offer and sponsorship in Australia.
Regarding immigrating to Australia, in order to migrate to Australia
under the General Skilled categories you must meet the basic
requirements and, if relevant, pass the points test.
The basic requirements of age, English language ability, nominated
occupation (which must be found on the Australian Skilled Occupations
List) and recent work experience provide that you should be under 45 years
of age, should have post secondary qualifications (such as university or trade
qualifications), recent work experience in a skilled occupation or in your nominated
occupation and your skills must be assessed by the relevant assessing authority.
Applicants who are unable to satisfy the basic requirements should not proceed
with an application.
If you apply under a category that requires the points test, you may be
allocated points for age, nominated occupation, English language ability,
specific work experience, for an occupation that is recognised as in demand
in Australia (extra points if you have a job offer for the occupation in demand),
Australian qualifications, spouse skills (if your spouse satisfies immigration
requirements), bonus categories (such as investment in Australia, knowledge
of Australian community languages, Australian work experience). If you apply
under the Skilled Australian Sponsored category, you will also be allocated
points for your relationship to your sponsor.
Please be advised that if you are interested in an initial assessment on
immigration to Australia, you should complete our Immigration Appraisal Form
available on our website at http://www.workpermit.co.uk/australia/appraisal_form.htm.
If you have a CV on hand it may be more convenient for you to provide much of
the information in CV format (in Rich Text (*.rtf) or Plain Text (*.txt) Format,
please) and send this to me directly in addition to filling out the on-line form.
As soon as we receive the above-mentioned details, you will be provided a complete
initial assessment on your ability to migrate to Australia.
I hope this has been helpful.
All the best.
