Dreaming of a life Down Under in beautiful Western Australia? Landing a WA state nomination is a crucial step towards securing your Australian skilled migration visa. But with invitation rounds happening regularly, how do you ensure you’re ready to seize the opportunity? Fear not, aspiring migrants, for this guide will equip you with the knowledge to conquer the next WA invitation round.

Step 1: Skill Assessment – The Foundation of Your Eligibility

The first step is to obtain a positive skills assessment from a relevant assessing authority. This verifies that your skills and qualifications meet Australian standards for your nominated occupation. Research the assessing authority specific to your occupation and ensure you meet their requirements before applying for the assessment.

Step 2: Mastering the English Language – Your Communication Key

While the minimum requirement for most WA occupations is “Competent English” (6 in each module for IELTS or 50 in each module for PTE), aiming for “Proficient English” (7 in each module for IELTS or 65 in each module for PTE) is highly recommended. This can significantly boost your points score, increasing your chances of receiving an invitation.

Step 3: Be an Early Bird –  Submit Your EOI ASAP

The Expression of Interest (EOI) is your ticket to the WA pool of potential nominees. Submit your EOI as soon as you meet the minimum eligibility requirements. Remember, invitations are often issued based on the date your EOI was submitted, so don’t delay!

Step 4:  Double-Check Your Visa Options – Be Prepared for Both Stages

Ensure you have the appropriate visa options lined up – one for submitting your EOI and another for the second stage of the nomination process, once you receive an invitation. Consulting a migration agent can help you navigate the complexities of visa selection.

Step 5: Never Stop Optimising – Every Point Counts!

Continuously review your EOI to identify areas where you can potentially increase your points score. This could involve gaining additional work experience, improving your English language skills, or pursuing further qualifications relevant to your occupation. Remember, every point counts in the competitive race for a nomination.

By following these steps and staying informed about the latest WA migration updates, you’ll be well on your way to receiving a coveted WA invitation and ultimately, securing your Australian dream. Remember, preparation is key! So, start strategizing today and be ready to shine in the next WA invitation round.
