What is Skilled Visa (Subclass 189)

This independent visa allows a migrant to live and work in Australia as a permanent resident. It is for points-tested skilled workers who are not sponsored by an employer or family member or nominated by a state or territory government.

  •  Stay, work and study in Australia indefinitely
  •  Get enrollment into Medicare, Australia’s scheme for health-related care and expenses
  •  Get an Australian citizenship (if you are eligible)
