Points Calculator for Skilled Migration

ASSESSMENT TOOL

This assessment tool is used to determine whether you meet the pass mark for a Skilled Migration Visa. Before proceeding with the assessment, head over to the Combined current list of eligible skilled occupations page, located on the Department of Home Affairs website. Locate your occupation, then check the column "Visa subclasses (streams or type)" for the following codes:

  • 189 (PT) = Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) – Points-tested stream
  • 190 = Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
  • 489 (S/T) = Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489) - State or Territory nominated
  • 489 (F) = Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489) - family nominated

If the relevant code doesn't appear in the "Visa subclasses (streams or type)" column of your occupation, then it is not eligible for that visa type.
