Eligibility criteria for Australian PR

The Australian immigration system is based on a point system. Anyone applying for an Australian Permanent Residency Visa must use the point-based system. The scoring system is only applicable to certain types.

The minimum criterion for skilled migration subclasses 189, 190, and 491 is 65. In business migration, only two streams in subclass 188 are point tested, with a minimum score requirement of 65. Each visa and subclass has its own set of points. The more points you earn, the more likely it is that you will be granted a permanent visa.
