What are the chances of getting Australia PR after 40 years?

Can I get Permanent Residency in Australia after 40 years?

Well, this is the most common question asked by the aspirants of Australian visa. Department of Home Affairs, Australia follows a point based system that allocated points to the applicants based on age, education, Work experience, English proficiency, etc. factors. The applicants with top score are selected by the government through periodic invitation rounds. You need to score minimum 65 points, however, higher points than this will increase your chances of getting permanent residency in Australia after 40 years.

Age factor while applying Australia PR

Since the applicants get points for the age factor, the highest points for this factor can be collected when you are between age group 25 and 33. Post this age group, the points for age factor start decreasing, although, you can still apply Australia PR if you are less than 45 years of age.

Changes in Australia’s Immigration point system

With new changes in Australia’s immigration point system applicable from November 16, 2019, you now have stronger chance of getting Australia PR invitation. These changes will be applicable to the GSM (General Skilled Migration) visa categories, i.e.

  • Skilled Independent Subclass 189 visa
  • Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 visa
  • Skilled Regional (Provisional) Subclass 489 visa

First two are point tested permanent residence visas, while third one is the temporary visa allocated by Australian government for up to 4 years. Subclass 489 Visa will be replaced by Regional Provisional Skilled Work Subclass 491 Visa w.e.f. November 16, 2019.

Let’s take a look at the new changes effective from November 2019:

  • 10 points for having a skilled spouse or de facto partner
  • 15 Points for applicants nominated by a State or Territory government or sponsored by a family member residing in regional Australia
  • 10 points- for having certain STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) qualifications
  • 10 points for applicants who do not have a spouse or de facto partner
  • 5 Points -for applicants with a spouse or de facto partner who has competent English

If you have skilled spouse or de facto partner, you can get 10 points based on the same as per the new changes. Also, if your partner has competent English, you can earn 5 more points. You can also get valuable 10 points for STEM education or having no spouse or de facto partner.
