Western Australia New Skilled Migration Stream requirements 2018

As discussed earlier about Western Australia introducing new skill migration stream for graduates of the Western Australia to live and work in the state on permanent basis. Keeping in mind the skill requirement, the state has introduced the new Graduate Stream for the State Sponsored Visa Subclass 190 and Skilled Regional Provisional Visa Subclass 489. This is surely a welcome move for international students with skilled migration becoming more and more competitive.

Till now, the process for Western Australia State Nomination Program had to go through the General Stream that includes nominating occupation listed on the WASMOL (Western Australia Skilled Migration Occupation List). There were limited number of occupations mentioned on WASMOL that includes medical practitioners and hence there were lesser immigration to the state.

The candidates who wants to apply for Western Australia Skilled Migration Program, now has the option to apply under Graduate Stream of WA. This program is effective from 25TH September, 2018.

The basic Graduate Stream requirements are:

  • The candidates must be international graduates completing 2 years of course from an educational institute in WA.
  • The candidate should be able to nominate an occupation from the GOL (Graduate Occupation List) for either the Subclass 489 or the Subclass 190 visa.
  • Doctoral degree and Master degree holders can nominate any occupation listed on the GOL and other educational degree holders also have the option to nominate few occupations from GOL.
  • The candidates must be able to demonstrate the language proficiency skills for the occupations listed on occupation group 1 and 2. Meanwhile, competent English is required for the others.
  • A minimum of at least one year of work experience in Australia or at least 3 years of relevant work experience abroad in the recent ten years is required in the nominated occupation or closely related nominated occupation. PhD and Masters Applicants are exempted from this condition.
  • Candidates must have an offer of employment in Australia for at least a period of 12 months
