Australian Skilled Migration Points Test

If you meet the criteria for a skilled migration visa, you may be eligible to come to Australia to live and work without a sponsor.

The subclass 189 and 190 Skilled visas exist to attract workers to Australia who will contribute to the occupation in one of a number of specified skilled occupations.

However, in order to be granted a visa under one of these subclasses, an applicant must score at least 60 points on the Skilled Migration Points Test prescribed by the Department of Immigration.

Skills are awarded in a combination of age, English proficiency, qualifications and experience in the stated occupation. You can estimate your own score using the table below (source: DIBP)
