About Australia Skill Select Immigration Regime

Australia Skill select is a major tool that has made elementary changes in the functioning of skilled immigration regime. We can justifiably term implementation of this new platform as overhaul of complete skilled migration system. Implemented on July 01 2012, it strives to completely change the way the Australian authorities look for immigrants. This new and ambitious immigration initiative is Aussie Labour pool demand centric and would help the authorities effectively address structural deficiencies (based on Skilled Occupation List) in country labour market to a great extent. Immigration authorities would now also be to control the influx of the professionals and trained workers, through skilled immigration route, as per the needs and demands of states, government agencies, domestic industries and sectors. It would also help the states and regions to locate qualified people with suitable profiles for nominations and settlement in regional parts of the country.

How Australia Skill Select immigration regime works

Skill select is a platform for skilled immigrants that will function similarly to a pre-stored database of the talent and skills. An Expression of Interest (EOI) document will play pivotal role in the functioning of this system. This document will be created free of charge by the aspiring immigrants for skilled migration based on the nominated skills in skilled occupation list (SOL) or business investment in form of a profile that will be stored on the skill select platform for a period of 2 years.
There will be certain preliminaries that will have to be completed before a candidate creates a profile in the EOI pool:
- A designated evaluation agency accesses his skills.
- Proving English linguistic skills through appropriate language test as IELTS.

The profile created will be stored on this system for a period of 2 years or till the applicant receives and invitation to file application for visa. The application will lapse if the applicant is not chosen within 2 years of the filing of the EOI application.
The immigration agencies, employers and the regional governments will be able access the database of the applicants opting for employer sponsored visa and state nomination. Those selected can file for immigration application.
The independent skilled migration will rely on the point based evaluation of a profile and qualified profiles securing minimum cutoff mark will be ranked according to the marks secured by a particular profile.
Quite obviously, highest ranked profiles – filed in the EOI pool - will get more attention and priority in the invitation process. After each round of the invitation process a new minimum cut-off mark will be hence announced for the convenience of the applicants and new invitations sent accordingly. One of the major advantages expected of this system is substantially reducing the processing times of an application, which will help the Department of Immigration and citizenship to weed out deadwood and focus on practical and workable profiles.

Canada – Immigration options

Canada is one of the richest and the largest countries in the world, offering state of the art facilities to all its residents and citizens. The country has always welcomed professionals and people of foreign origin with open arms. The Canadian government considers its immigrant population as an asset which has led to the development of its economy.

Many different migration options have been set by the country and the provinces for a prospective immigrant to decide. These programs are one of the oldest and most popular. Most of these visa options cater to Permanent Resident status for the immigrants from the first day of landing. The visa programs include the following:

Skilled Migrant Visas - Federal Skilled Professional Program o Quebec Skilled Migrant program - Canada Provincial Nominee Programs for skilled professionals

Programs for investor and businessmen
- Quebec Immigrant investor program - Canada Provincial Nominee Programs for businessmen and investors

Skilled Migrant Visas

Highly skilled and well qualified professionals always find a niche for themselves in the Canadian job market. Many Canadian employers hire foreign nationals, especially in those professions and trade where there is a shortage of skills in the local labour market. There are two types of Skilled Migrant visas:

Federal Skilled Worker/Professional Program (FSW)
The federal skilled worker/Professional Program is for those individuals and their dependent family members, who wish to live and work in Canada. Under the FSW program, a prospective immigrant needs to prove his eligibility on the Points Based System. He must score points based on his age, academic qualifications and work experience, English language skills and adaptability factors. Here, an applicant must earn the prescribed minimum pass mark under the Points Based System. With this, the work experience should match with the one of the open occupations mentioned in the list of open occupations brought out by the Canadian government from time to time. Open occupation list for the year 2014, applicable with effect from 1st May, 2014, has been recently introduced. The open occupation list under which the applications can be filed under federal skilled worker program consists of 50 occupations. There is an individual quota of 1000 per occupation and overall limit of 25,000 applications, whichever is earlier, for the year 2014.
The candidates eligible under this program need not have a job offer in prior, neither a sponsorship from a blood relative and so on. Instead, they would be permitted to file an application for Canadian Permanent Resident Visa based on simple requirement of meeting point based eligibility criteria. Those granted permanent residence visa under the FSW program are entitled to all the basic rights post landing in Canada – including right employment and/or do business, education for self and children, medical and social security benefits and much more.
The biggest perk is that an applicant can get to be the citizen of Canada at a later stage. More so, he becomes a full-fledged Permanent Resident in Canada from day one of landing and is entitled to all related benefits, including visa free international travels to major countries across the world.

Canada Provincial Nominee

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is another option for Canadian migration. If an applicant has already decided where he would like to reside in Canada, he can apply under this program. The PNP is specific to each and every province in the country with the states having autonomy over its guidelines. Under this program, applicants with relevant work experience, skills and academic qualifications are nominated by the particular Provincial governments to contribute to its economy. These immigrants would be granted the status of Permanent Residents of that particular province. However, in majority of PNPs, the applicant may be required to have a job offer from a provincial employer to become eligible for nomination by the province and apply for permanent resident visa thereafter. Of late some of the provinces (like Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan) have started coming out with programs where applications can be filed by skilled professionals without job offers as well. For those intending to settle in the province of Quebec, a separate application has to be filed and a Quebec Selection Certificate has to be obtained from the Quebec government.
