For anyone wishing to apply for a "Skilled Independent Visa" (Subclass 189), the most important thing to remember is that the skills list keeps changing every year. The new list will come into effect from 1st July 2017. With that in mind, if you wish to apply for this visa and if your occupation is listed on the “Skilled Occupations List” (SOL), you should not delay in applying as you could risk having your occupation not listed in the new SOL.

When considering a move to Australia whether that is on a permanent or temporary basis, the country has many advantages to offer both individuals and families.

Firstly, Australians enjoy the second highest quality of life in the whole world. This is measured on three factors; health, educational attainment, and income. Taking all three of these factors into account across every single country in the world, Australia is at top of the list, coming second only to Norway. Which, let’s face it, don’t speak English and have terrible weather. The USA comes in at eighth, meaning Americans can drastically improve their quality of life by moving to Australia.

Australia has the fourth highest life expectancy in the world with the average Australian living to almost 83 years of age. So moving to Australia could potentially add years to your life. You can think of them as bonus years, drinking ice-cold beers, in glorious sunshine, while eating endless barbeques.

Australia also ranks in the top ten in the measure of the healthiest countries, and fares far better then the USA who ranked in 28th position.

The last on this list, but by no means the least, is that Australia is a far more equal country in terms of wealth distribution. In Australia, the richest 1% of the population took 10% of the income share whereas in the USA the richest 1% took 18% of the income in the country, which makes us a more sharing nation.

So, in short, there is a lot more to Australia than its reputation for great weather, amazing beaches, great barbeques and cold beer. It is also a place to enjoy an all-round better standard of life, from health, to education, to income. So any Americans who feel less than enthused about living in Trumps America, or anyone else for that matter are more than welcome to come and check it out.b

Simplified Student Visa Frame Work:
Under the new student visa structure, an application will be subject to revised assessment criteria, which will determine its risk level.
Visa applications will now be assessed based on;
• The passport of the applicant.
• The education provider that the application is registered to study within Australia.
As before, education providers must be registered with CRICOS, (Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students).
Each of the above criteria will be rated from one to three for each visa application, and a combination of the two scores will be used to determine the overall risk of the applicant breaking the terms of their visa.
A level one application is deemed to be low risk, and as such, the applicant will have to provide less documentation to back up their declarations made in relation to their financial capacity or English language proficiency. A level three applicant is deemed to be higher risk, and will have to provide more documentation to back up these declarations.
The ratings assigned to a particular passport or education provider are based on the frequency of applicants using that passport or education provider breaking the terms of their visa during the previous 12 months. These ratings are reviewed on a regular basis.

Changes in the Student Visa Framework

The current structure of the visa framework is quite complex, comprising of eight visa subclasses, an assessment level framework and subsequent visa processing formalities and arrangements. The Australian Government has acknowledged the high impact of the international education on the economy and culture and is adamant to facilitate its growth by making the visa process for overseas genuine and eligible students easier.
