Australia Immigration Points Calculator

Business people and skilled professionals can migrate to Australia based on their skill sets, educational qualifications, and work experience. With the general skilled migration self-assessment test, an individual can evaluate his/her chances for Australian immigration.

Individuals will score high if they are under 50, have English language proficiency, and have adequate work experience in their nominated occupation, which must be included in the country’s SOL (Skilled Occupation List).

*Disclaimer:

A quick eligibility check of Y-Axis is only to help the applicants understand their scores. The points displayed are based on your answers only. Please note the points on each section are evaluated based on various parameters set in the immigration guidelines, and a technical evaluation is a must to know your accurate scores and eligibility to find out which immigration program you can apply for. The Quick eligibility check does not guarantee you the below points; you may score high or low points once our expert team technically evaluates you. There are many assessing bodies that process skills assessment, which will depend on your nominated occupation, and these assessing bodies will have their own criteria in considering an applicant as skilled. State/ territory authorities will also have their own criteria to allow sponsorships, which an applicant should satisfy. So, it is very important for an applicant to go apply for a technical evaluation.
