Australia Permanent Resident Visa Subclass 189

Australia is one of the best countries to apply Australia Permanent Resident Visa under Subclass 189. The country offers various visa categories to offer permanent residency to the selected candidates.  The Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189), the most popular migration route is meant for individuals who have the qualifications or skills required to fill Australia’s skilled worker shortages. All the Australian immigration applications are handled by the DIBP (Department of Immigration and Border Protection). The island continent has lately been one of the world’s topmost destinations for potential immigrants, chiefly for its supreme focus on achieving good work life balance, high remuneration, and burgeoning economy.

Sub class 189 is open to applicants who are able to satisfy the Australian Department of Border Protection visa point criteria by achieving the benchmark point.  Applicants for this visa do not require any Australian state or territory sponsorship. The candidates are selected on the basis of points awarded on few factors like age, education, work, language proficiency, through submission of Expression of Interest Profile [EOI]. Invitations for Australia PR will be issued periodically to the highest ranking expressions of interest subject to occupation ceilings. Know more about Australia Immigration through us.
