The Family Stream seeks to reunite Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents and eligible New Zealand citizens with their close family members.
There are a number of migration options for fiancés, partners, children, parents and other family members of Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens.
Some visa classes within the Family Stream are subject to being capped and queued. These visas may have extensive waiting periods and this may affect your decision to apply for one of these visas.
Information regarding recent important changes to the Family Migration Program is available from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website. This includes additional questions and answers, as well as details on changes across all migration visas. See: http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Brin/Fami
The General Skilled Migration Program (GSM) is for professionals and other skilled migrants who are not sponsored by an employer and who have skills in particular occupations required in Australia.
SkillSelect is an online service that allows intending migrants to submit an expression of interest (EOI) for skilled migrant visa sub-classes. SkillSelect is a free online service.
An EOI is not the same as a visa application. It is an indication that you would like to be considered for skilled migration to Australia.
By using SkillSelect, you could be nominated for a skilled visa by Australian employers or state or territory governments, or you could be invited by the Australian government to lodge a visa application.
SkillSelect streamlines the visa application process and improves the employment prospects of skilled migrants.
