general skilled migration (GSM)
The objective of the Skilled Migration program is to engage highly skilled employable immigrants
for migration to Australia. It is the most common form of migration to Australia, and it is one of the core areas of HFE Consultants. HFE has handled applications for all skilled migration subclasses and most skills assessing authorities and we can assist you in navigating the options to reach a successful outcome. There is a wide range of points-tested, family-sponsored and state-sponsored skilled visa
sub classes. Choosing the right occupation in which to apply for skills assessment is critical and can affect your points score and eligibility for state-sponsored options.
