Australian skilled migration assessment - Find out if you qualify for migration
The Australian skilled migration assessment, often known as the points test, is the first step in your immigration journey. Arguably, it is also the most important step.
Why, you ask?
Because the assessment will prevent you from acting on false hopes over your chances to migrate to Australia. In turn, it will protect you from losing money.
Why it all starts with an assessment
You should view the Australian skilled migration assessment as the starting line. It is the logical first step in seeing whether immigration to Australia is even an option for you.
Should I pay for an assessment?
You will find that most professionals do charge a fee for doing an assessment.
Please be cautious when assessments are offered free of charge!
Assessments take time, diligence and expertise to complete thoroughly and properly. An online assessment or an assessment that takes the form of a 5-minute phone call, won't go into the depth of detail needed to ensure an accurate assessment.
Why is the assessment so important?
Firstly, it will decide whether or not you proceed done the pathway of applying for an Australian visa.
Equally important is that this assessment will form the basis of your Expression of Interest application. Subsequent to the expression of interest, also any visa application.
Who can help me with an Australian skilled migration assessment?
As licensed immigration agents for Australia, Intergate Emigration can help.
In general, we urge you use the services of a licensed immigration adviser if you are seeking professional help:
- Only licensed immigration advisers (or those who are exempt) are governed.
- Only licensed immigration advisers can be held accountable by MARA (Migration Agents Registration Authority), the recognized professional body in Australia.
Isn't this the peace of mind you'd like when moving yourself and your family across the world?
We also caution you to be aware of agents outside of Australia with a DIBP license number. This number is simply an administrative exercise. It carries no guarantee of the 'agent's' services.
In short, if you cannot find an agent on the MARA website, do not make use of their services.
