Your “skill” or profession needs to be in demand in Australia. What professions are in demand is determined by the Australian government and updated periodically via the Skilled Occupation List.

To prove your competency in a given profession, you would need to go through Skill Assessment which is conducted by various Australian organisations depending on your profession. This should be your first step in your au immigration journey. Please refer to our video blog for more information about the process.
