Visa subclass 190 is a visa for the Permanent Residency (PR).

You could apply for this visa by yourself, without any employer getting involved.

You need to have a 60-point for yourself, plus another 5 points from the state nominate; NSW.

60 + 5 = 65 points, that will qualify you for the visa subclass 190, the Permanent Residency (PR).

The occupation will be "closed" once the demand has been reached.

Australian population

2017 data may be a bit old BUT at least it gives us some idea of how the Australian population spread out. Big cities like Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne & Perth are quite populated. Hence, there is no surprise that the current government try to push the population growth to the regional area.

Think of migrating, think regional.
Most of the regional areas aren't that bad. They are livable, nice and quiet areas like Adelaide, Canberra, Cairns....and... many more. Good environment to bring up a family.

International Education

International Education is such a big industry for Australia. It's here to stay but I just hope that those private colleges provide a good education quality. Not just here to make money and take advantage of some international students.

There are too many low quality or no quality at all colleges around. They need to be gone.
