How to immigrate to Australia without a job offer?

Australia is one of the most preferred destinations for immigrants across the world. Its cultural diversity, high standard of living, thriving economy, and top-class healthcare system attract a lot of people to migrate and settle down. Additionally, the country is famous for its population of skilled professionals which indicates a wide range of job opportunities.

Australia provides a lot of visa pathways for a skilled workforce. It is not only the individuals who have a job offer from an Australian employer who can apply for a work visa but also those who don’t have a job offer yet. There are several Australia immigration pathways for individuals who want to migrate and then search for job opportunities.

Let’s discuss how you can migrate to Australia without a job offer in this article.

Australia, similar to many other countries, uses a points-based system to determine the eligibility for Australian migration. You must score at least 65 points to become eligible for any work visa. The higher your scores, the more likely you will get the visa easily.

Generally, there will be different categories to measure the eligibility of the candidates. Each category will have a predetermined score range and when the candidates fulfill criteria, they will be awarded the highest score for each category.

Let us look at the main categories which are considered in the points calculator:

  • Age
  • Educational qualification
  • Work experience in Australia
  • Work experience outside Australia
  • English language proficiency (IELTS, TOEFL, PTE scores depending on the test you take)
  • Ph.D. degree
  • Studying in a regional area
  • A professional training is taken for a particular skilled program in Australia
  • State or territorial sponsorship

Scores in each of these categories are calculated using the Australia points calculator and you must score a minimum of 65 points or more to become eligible for a work visa.
