What is a Skilled Independent 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. To be able to apply for this visa you need to submit an expression of interest and then be invited through SkillSelect to apply. With this visa, you and your family members who have also been granted this visa can:
  •  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)
  •  Sponsor eligible relatives for permanent residence
