Australia’s General Skilled Migration Program (GSM) Fees – 2018

Australia’s General Skilled Migration Program (GSM) provides key pathway to skilled workers for immigration and permanent residency in Australia. Depending on the GSM visa category you choose, you can move to Australia on temporary or permanent basis.

The GSM is based on a point system, which evaluate the applicants and accordingly allocate them points based on key factors, i.e. age, education, work experience, language skills, etc. The candidates submit Expression of Interest (EOI) in the online SkillSelect System and top ranking profiles receive the ITA (Invitation to Apply) for relevant GSM visa.

Visa Categories under GSM

There are three visa categories under point based GSM program, i.e.

  • Skilled – Independent (Subclass 189) (Points-Tested) stream
  • Skilled – Nominated (Subclass 190)
  • Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) (Subclass 489)

The first one in the list is independent permanent visa that doesn’t require any sponsorship or nomination from applicant. However, other two, i.e. Subclass 190 and 489 require the nomination from state and sponsorship from family member in regional Australia respectively.
