    What is Australia immigration point system?

    The Australia Point System helps applicants determine their point totals for the Subclass 189, 190, and 491 of Australian immigration visas. The minimum requirements for each of the three are also described below. The applicant must receive a minimum score of 65 points for each visa. The greater the number of points, the greater the likelihood that the candidate will be invited to apply and to permanently live, work, and study throughout Australia. The Australian Points Calculator calculates points based on many factors, including candidates’ qualifications for skilled migration visas, mentioned below:

    1. Age 
    2. English Language Ability 
    3. Skilled Employment 
    4. Educational Qualifications 
    5. Australian Study Requirements

    How to calculate 65 points for Australia immigration?

    The Canadian government has around 80 immigration programs to facilitate a smooth and easy immigration process. Immigrants can choose the process which is best suited to their skill sets. 

    Following are the major immigration programs to apply for Australia PR Visa:

    1. Age

    Applications are graded according to the age category they were in at the time of submission, with applicants between the ages of 25 and 32 receiving the most points. While those above 45 make no gains. Points allotted age-wise are: 

    Age Group

    Maximum Points

    18 to 24 25 Points
    25 to 32 30 Points
    33 to 39 25 Points
    40 to 44 15 Points

    2. English language proficiency

    A test administered by the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is required for the majority of Skillselect applicants.  There is no requirement to take an English language proficiency test for applicants from native English-speaking nations or those who have received a tertiary degree (equivalent to an Australian Bachelor’s degree or higher level) from a university where English is the primary language.

    However, all applicants must take the IELTS exam in order to qualify for points for Superior or Proficient English language proficiency. Points are bifurcated as follows:

    English Proficiency Level

    Maximum Points

    Competent English IELTS 6 / OET C 0 points
    Proficient English IELTS 7  / OET B 10 point
    Superior English  IELTS 8 /   OET A 20 points

    3. Skilled employment

    Points are given to applicants who have worked in a skilled occupation, whether in Australia or another nation. To receive points for skilled employment, experience must be in a nominated occupation on one of Australia’s lists specified above or in a closely similar occupation, and it must have been acquired within the last ten years.

    For skilled employment experience obtained in Australia and abroad, points are given out individually. The maximum number of points that can be awarded for skilled employment is 20, however points from both tables may be combined.

    Points for skilled employment within Australia:

    Maximum Points

    At least one but less than three years (of past 10 years) 5 points
