New Skilled Migration Stream in Western Australia promises good opportunities

29 Sep 2018

Western Australia recently introduced a new Graduate stream for the Skilled Nomination subclass 190 visa and Skilled Regional (Provisional) subclass 489 visa. It is expressing great support to skilled migration. Moreover, the reality today is that skilled migration is becoming highly competitive, and there are limited alternative options, in the migration of student graduates. This will be a welcome pathway for them.

Western Australia Graduate Stream

Moreover, in the past, applicants seeking Western Australia nomination, needed to go through the General stream. Furthermore, they had to first nominate, an occupation on the Skilled Migration Occupation List of Western Australia. This list is available to medical professionals, and brought less number of migrants to the state.

With effect from 25th September 2018, applicants who seek nomination, in a non-medical occupation, have an opportunity to do this, in the state in the Graduate Stream.

The Graduate stream has a benefit. It offers a long list of occupations, in a variety of industries. There is room for ICT specialists, Professionals, Medicals and Engineers, also.

Requirements of Graduate Stream

The qualifying norm is that the applicants must be university graduates, who completed their full time studies, for 2 years in a WA university and can nominate an occupation, existing on the new Graduate Occupation List, for 190 or 489 visa.

Masters and PhD graduates can nominate any occupation on the List, while such students who complete a Bachelor, Bachelor Honors Degree, Graduate Diploma, or Graduate Certificate, can nominate some from that list.

The additional requirements are:

English language requirements: 
Applicants nominating the ANZSCO Major Group 1 and 2, must also show Proficiency in English. Remaining students must show Competent English.
Work experience: 
12 months work experience in the country, in the past 10 years, or 3 years relevant work experience abroad, in the past 10 years. Moreover, the experience, needs to be in a nominated occupation.
Contract of employment: 
A 12 months full time job offer is necessary, for applicants in the Graduate stream. Finally this is good, for top achievers among education graduates, in WA. It also provides a pathway to skilled migration, which only attracted certain medical professionals previously.
