If you are a well-qualified individual wishing to migrate to Australia under the skilled categories, there may very well be an opportunity for you to gain entry to Australia. It is likely that you will be able to apply in a category under which relevant skills, language ability and work experience are needed in order to satisfy Australian immigration requirements and to live and work in Australia. If you don't meet these requirements, you may qualify if you are a professional business owner, senior executive, or have close family members resident in Australia.

Each skilled migration category has different requirements for entry to Australia. In most cases you will need to satisfy the basic requirements and in many categories you must pass the points test.
