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.
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.

Sheer professionalism and dedication is what they stand for. Thank you Visas Avenue for helping me achieve my Australia’s dream. My consultant Ms. Shivangi Arora and her team helped me on each step of the process. A special mention for Mr. Vaibhav Saini who was very approachable and customer friendly and answered all my queries whenever I asked. A big thumbs up to the team and Visas Avenue. Thank you again.
Our experience with Visas Avenue has been a good one. Though initially there was some delay due to the case manager being changed, when my case was taken up by Ms. Priyanka Kandwal, the process has been pretty smooth. I would like to thank her and the team for their patience while handling our case and would like to commend their knowledge and expertise when it comes to the rules and regulations of the whole process. I would highly recommend them for the PR application process and already have done so. Wishing them all the best!!
