Need step by step guide to subclass 175 visa

Hello All,

I am an Indian citizen and currently working in USA. I am planning to move to Australia for job. I have searched all over internet but I did not get a well documented procedure how to apply for Australian visa. I request if anyone can provide the same method.

I got only few things which are applicable for my visa - here they are

a. I will have to file SubClass 175 Visa (independent migration).
b. I will also have to fill 276 Application for general skilled migration to Australia.

Also I have few queries,

a. Since I am an Indian citizen, the certified documents should be attested from US or India ? or that does not matter ?
b. Which medical check up report they ask for ? can I provide all my medical check up document which I did 6 months ago in India ? Also at what stage medical documents will be requested ?

Please let me know the answers, I would be really appreciate your efforts.

Thanks in advance - Sk

Well, it seems you may have been looking somewhere to find an application form number, not 276 btw.
New regulations are about to be introduced, scheduled for July01 and come back to Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration after then and use the Visa Options link to take you through to the 175 visa and there's an eligibility section and an applying section with Checklist, all clearly laid out with a lot of information to be read and then the Immi Booklet as back-up.
A read of processing priority information on the What's New link is also recommended.
For documents that need either translation or to have copies certified, I would expect you can use the authority in any country where you are applying from but Immi on the website do have a Contacts page and you can make a pre lodgement enquiry by email to have that clarified.

The medical check-up you did 6 months ago will likely be out of date and you'll be requested to do a new examination and also to provide police checks from India and the US if there for 12 months when your application gets to stage of being assessed.

There can be higher level requirements for some occupations but if an assessing authority has not specified a higher level, I think in the 175 eligibility chart you'll find links stating it is 6.0.
Best you do some reading [ no pun intended ].
Also have a read of english news on What's New? Recent Changes in General Skilled Migration - and I think you'll find in the 175 info it mentions getting it in within 28 days of application.
In the what's new there is also information on processing priorities you may want to read and rather than rush an application in and then not pass IELTS!, well would you prefer that and then find your application rejected and fee lost.
Patience is a virtue as is diligence and being prepared to make an effort.

Hi Sk,
To add more,,,
you need to read and research the official immigration web site first.

In Short
Step 1 is generally the Skill Assessment from the relevant assessment body, ACS in case of IT workers
Step 2 is taking the IELTS,,, a score of 7 in all sections should be aimed at to get maximum points but 6 in all is the minimum
Step 3 is filing the main application
You will require colour scanned copies of all your original documents (degree certificate, marksheets, birth certificate, appointment letter, pay slips, bank statements, IT returns, passport , letter from employer stating your role, marriage certificate etc, Note : All are not mandatory, it depends on your case)
All these colour scanned copies of original or attested by local authority needs to be uploded on to the DIAC web site along with the fee payment.

Step 4 : Depending on priority you application will be assigned to a case officer ( eg. after 3 months ) and he / she will request the remaining documents and formalities like requesting for police clearance from all countries you have stayed for more than 12 months, medical tests, further proof of employment history etc etc
Step 5 : Once satisfied the case officer will clear your case and you will be granted a PR
Step 6 : You need to get your passport stamped and enter australia within a date (eg. 6months)

The entire process ent - to - end can take around 12 months or more depending on priority,,, 8 to 9 months is the fastest I have seen

Indian police clearance can take a long time if you are not in India ,,, sometimes more than 3 months, USA police clearance takes 2 to 3 months,,,, so need to be planned properly...

ok then best luck....

Client Service Charter will give you an indication of processing times and whatever is there I'd consider a minimum and possibly expect considerably more.
The what's new 08Feb. announcements cover processing priority.

Smile Inquiry

Thanks a lot Tracker777 and Wanderer for your detailed response. I am searching more on more on the Australian immigration website.

Since my job in USA got extension from 6 months to 1 year, I got a new question to ask,

Q : Suppose if my visa got approved for Australia within how many days I need to make my entry. Is there any restriction to make atleast one trip to the Australia after visa approval ?

P.S. This question arised because I dont want to move to Australia as soon as I get my visa.

Thanks in advance for your reply.........

Visas are issued with a latest enter by date which will usually be whatever the latest validity date is for your character or medical check, they usually having a validity period of 12 months and that is why in Visa application info you'll see it is not recommended to get your character checks and medical examinations done until requested to by a CO for if you do them early and the validity expires before your visa is fully considered, you will have to do them again.
Even if a visa was granted within the validity period of checks done early you would likely have much less time in which to make your initial entry by.

People do make an initial trip to activate their visa, referred to as a validation trip.
