Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

People interested in skilled migration to Australia can submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) through SkillSelect. You will then be ranked in SkillSelect according to the score you get on the points test.

An EOI is not a visa application. Depending on your score, rank and other factors such as occupation caps, you may receive an invitation to apply for a visa.
