If you're working in a job on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) and you also meet the requirements around your age, level of English language, training and work experience, you can apply for a Skilled Independent visa based on a calculation of points.
You can also apply for an independent visa by being sponsored by an immediate family member who is a permanent resident or citizen of Australia. As long as your sponsor is a permanent resident or citizen of Australia, your sponsor for an independent visa application can also be a spouse, a person you are engaged to be married to or a de facto (common-law) partner.
Independent visas can be applied for in both temporary and permanent residence visas. The temporary visas usually allow applicants a certain amount of time within the country working up their skill sets, after which many applicants are then able to transition to a permanent residency visa.

The more qualified and experienced you are in your profession will have a bearing on your application for permanent residency. But because the application is points-based, there are almost always ways to boost your points in other areas, for instance some Australian states award more points to attract people with particular skills those states need. We are here to provide the help and advice you need whether applying skills based or from a family sponsored. Call us on 07 55967 800.
