This is a competitive tender type process requiring an accumulation of points for various aspects of bio data such as age, qualifications and work experience. Candidates must be able to demonstrate at least 160 points to ensure selection. 

Significant care needs to be taken in terms of the job offer. Many people end up in a difficult situation where they hold a work visa for a job they regarded as skilled but that does not meet the definition of “skilled employment” in this category of residence application.

Assuming that because you hold a work visa you are eligible for a residence visa (or permanent residence) can be a costly mistake.  In addition there are age limits and minimum English language requirements that can present a barrier to qualifying for residence.

Detailed research is required to establish if you qualify for residence under this category before you start any application process.

“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
