There are 3 stages involved:
The first stage involves completion of a skill assessment under the relevant government authorities. Your Educational and Employment Documents are examined for the required level of skill in your chosen occupation in Australia.
After a successful skill assessment, your Expression of Interest (EOI) will be lodged in front of the Australian Government, which will declare your interest to live and work in Australia.
For this visa program an application to obtain a State Nomination is lodged before an EOI.
Once you have been issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA), you can submit your final application for Permanent residency, so that your visa can be approved and granted.
The Duration for Visa processing depends upon the particular case lodged and is based on personal circumstances.
A time period of 3 months on average is taken to process 190 subclass visa application for overseas applicants.
