Changes have been proposed to the Australian skilled migration programme.
The Australian Migration Centre organised a seminar for the introduction of these changes for those who are mulling over migration to Australia. A major change is being effected to the point system. Under the current system, one must score 120 points whereas from the 1st of July 2011, an applicant should score 65 points. The process will be carried out under a different formula. Under the proposed Scheme an applicant is rewarded for his qualifications and work experience. It will be extremely difficult to qualify under the new laws. As such one must promptly act if interested in migrating to Australia.
