About Australia’s General Skilled Migration Program

The general skilled migration (GSM) program accounts for most of Australia’s permanent/provisional visas issued each year and is the main pathway for people looking to migrate to Australia.

With an intake size of 120,000 – 160,000 people each year, the basis of this program is to allow individuals with genuine skills in certain occupations to apply for residency directly without needing to be sponsored by an employer.

A points-tested program, applicants will need to meet minimum criteria to be allowed to apply as well as have an occupation that is in demand in Australia.

With over 400 occupations, it’s not easy figuring out which option suits you best, get in contact with us and one of our consultants will assess your profile and tell you exactly which occupation to apply under.
