Online since 2005, we have helped thousands of members obtain visas for Australia to start a new life down under.

We have over 50,000 members (including many migration agents) who are available to offer free help and advice on all aspects of the migration journey and subsequent life in Australia.

In addition to the forums, we also have an ever expanding articles section, which is packed with useful information about migration, jobs, suburbs, education, shipping and much more.

Moving to Australia is getting much harder. For the 2017 – 2018 year, Australia had an annual cap of 190,000 places. However, they only accepted 162,000 permanent migrants – well below the annual cap and the lowest intake in 10 years.

In addition to the reduced intake, the number of points required via SkillSelect in order to get an invitation to apply for a visa, rose steadily throughout the year, making it harder and harder to get a visa.

The table below shows how the points require to apply for a the Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 489) has risen from 60 at the start of the year to 80 (and actually hit 85 at one stage).

Emigrating to Australia

The Skilled Independent visa (Subclass 189) (Points-tested) stream has seen less of a fluctuation, averaging around the 70 mark +/- 5 points either way.

The reduction in visa grants and increase in points required to even apply has meant that emigrating to Australia is more difficult than ever before.

There’s also lots of political rhetoric in Australia at the moment about migration and population size, so it’s possible that the migration intake will drop in coming years.

However, all is not lost, if moving down under is your dream then let us make it a reality. If you’re got a migration question or need to devise a strategy to obtain a visa, then we can help.
