Frequently asked questions

The cost of obtaining a visa might be high. Visas can range in price from being free to costing several hundred dollars to several thousand. The price varies according on the type of visa you’re requesting.

Not necessary, I say. To submit an expression of interest, you need at least 65 points. The likelihood that you will be invited to submit a visa application increases with your point total.
To be granted an invitation to submit a visa application, however, normally requires a score greater than 65, which varies based on the number of applicants with the same employment that the Department of Home Affairs receives. For instance, although high school teachers might only need 80 points to receive an invitation, accountants might need 90 points or more.

The manner in which the Department of Home Affairs will issue an invitation relies on a variety of criteria, including what occupations are most needed at that particular moment. For example, in the COVID-19 era, medical professionals receive the majority of invites.

An expression of interest (EOI) is not a visa application; rather, it is a request to be invited to submit an application for a skilled visa. A series of questions regarding how you plan to earn points for a subclass 189, 190, or 491 visa application are asked of you on a free online form. It is crucial that your points are correctly computed so that they match the points stated in the EOI when a visa application is submitted after being granted an invitation. A bridging visa cannot be obtained through an EOI.

No matter where you are from or the state of your visa, everyone working in Australia is entitled to the same protections and rights at work.
Your employer is required by law to respect workplace and immigration regulations, which includes paying you fairly for all hours worked (pay rates are determined by Australian law and cannot be changed) and providing a secure workplace.
“The most important thing for international workers to realise is that, typically, they will have the same employment rights as everyone else in Australia,” says Trent Hancock, Principal Lawyer at the employment law company McDonald Murholme. This includes, among other things, the freedom from workplace discrimination and the right to obtain a minimum salary.

If you are a holder of a subclass 491 or 494 you must have held that visa for at least 3 years before you can lodge an application for a subclass 189 or 190. You will have to meet all criteria of that visa subclass in order to be granted the new visa.

In Australia, you must provide proof of your permission to work in order to lawfully work. This could be a passport from Australia or New Zealand, a visa, proof of permanent residency, an Australian birth certificate, or an Australian citizenship certificate.
