GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION

Australia’s General Skilled Migration (GSM) Program is intended to attract highly skilled people who are less than 45 years of age (189 visa) and 50 years of age (190 and 489 visa) to migrate to Australia. Most skilled migration visas offer permanent residency to successful applicants and so the GSM Program is an attractive option if you are a highly skilled person looking to migrate to Australia permanently.

The GSM Program has several specific features including:

  • It is a points-based system.

  • You have to be invited to apply for a visa.
