General Skilled Migration (GSM Visa)

The Skilled Migration Program’s goal is to attract highly employable people to migrate to Australia. It is the most common way for people to come to Australia. Many people would like to apply for a skilled migration visa. Skilled visas are point-based, and applicants must meet certain criteria in order to apply. The first step in applying for a skilled visa is to lodge your application and obtain a positive skill assessment from the relevant assessing body for your nominated occupation.

After receiving a positive skill assessment, the next step is to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) via Skill Select (DoHA’s online system). If you meet all other requirements, Doha may invite you to apply for a visa, and you will have a limited time to apply following that invitation.
