Demystifying the Australian Points System: How to Maximize Your Immigration Chances

The Australian points-based system is used to assess whether skilled migrants can qualify for a visa to migrate to Australia. The system calculates points based on certain factors, such as age, work experience, education, language proficiency, and other criteria. The minimum points required to be eligible for most skilled visas is 65 points. Points are awarded for factors such as age (those between 25-32 receive maximum points), work experience (those with 8-10 years receive maximum points), education (maximum points for a Doctorate or Master’s degree), and language proficiency (maximum points for a score of 8 on all four components of the IELTS test). The system also takes into account factors such as state or territory sponsorship, partner skills, and professional year. The higher the points a candidate has, the higher their chances are of receiving an invitation to apply for a skilled visa and ultimately, the opportunity to migrate to Australia.
