What is a Skillselect Australia?
Australia SkillSelect is a service which is available online that provides the facility for highly skilled workers and businessmen keen in migrating to Australia to provide the needed information to complete an application to migrate. This is considered as the first step to calculate the points.
Through the provision of Australia skillselect program information, an applicant can express his/her interest in a skilled visa by submitting the documents for and completing the task of ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI). Australia SkillSelect program is also intended to meet the needs caused by skill shortages in Australia’s provinces or regions. Australia Skillselect program allows applicant migrants to express their explicit interest and willingness to live and work in regional Australia.
Australia Skillselect program is thus designed to be of particular benefit to employers who are having skill shortages in their provinces and state and territory governments who are seeking to enable migrants to settle in regional Australia.
