From the first of July this year (2012), all intending migrants interested in the points based skilled migration or business investment and innovation visa programs will be required to submit an EOI and receive an invitation in order to lodge a visa application. What is an EOI? An EOI is not a visa application, it is an indication that you would like to be considered for a skilled visa. You will need to provide a range of information in your EOI depending on the visa(s) you want to be considered for, like basic personal information, study and education, level of English skills, work experience, details of a Skills Assessment, nominated occupation, related to your nominated occupation, business and investment experience. Below are the Skilled migration visas you can apply for after you accomplished your EOI and invited to lodge the visa application:

You can also express interest in the following visa programs on your EOI to be contacted by an employer.

You can express interest in a range of skilled migration visas in one EOI.

Before submitting your EOI While you don’t need to submit documents supporting your claims when you submit your EOI, you must have a range of information prepared. You must have documents supporting the claims you make in your EOI ready. An invitation to make a visa application may be issued shortly after you submit your EOI and you will only have 60 days to lodge a complete visa application. Submitting your EOI If you have researched your visa options and prepared the information required, you are ready to submit an EOI. All EOIs must be completed online using SkillSelect.

After submitting your EOI Once you have completed your EOI, it is stored in SkillSelect and is valid for two years. You will received a notification from SkillSelect. It is your responsibility to access your EOI and update your details if your circumstances change like gained new work experience, gained a higher qualification, improved your English language ability and/or changed your family composition. If you provide updated information which changes your points score or your ability to make a complete EOI, SkillSelect will update your ranking and ability to be considered for an invitation automatically.
