New Skilled Migration Selection Model Launches 1st July

Australian Immigration Changes

In July this year, we will see major changes to the Australian skilled migration application and selection process with the Department of Immigration & Citizenship (DIAC) launching SkillSelect. From the 1st July, Expressions of Interest (EOI) will be required as part of the skilled migration process but what does this mean and what impact will this have on skilled migrants currently onshore in Australia? Uniquely, the Down Under Expo is Australian’s only onshore immigration exhibition and this June in Melbourne, the Australian Department of Immigration will be presenting seminars on SkillSelect.

The Down Under Expo, now in its third year, is Australia’s only dedicated Employment & Education Exhibition that exclusively targets the combined career and immigration needs of overseas nationals currently living in Australia. Following the overwhelming success of the Melbourne & Sydney Exhibitions in 2011, the exhibition is back in Melbourne & Sydney for 2012 with the addition of Perth.

In addition to immigration, The Down Under Expo also combines employment and education opportunities for skilled migrants. For job seekers the opportunity to meeting with employers and recruiters, while for those seeking vocational, foundation and employment related courses, the exhibition offers a range of options including diplomas, degrees and of course IELTS preparation courses.

The Down Under Expo takes place Saturday and Sunday, 2nd and 3rd June in the Melbourne’s Crown Conference Centre (10am and 3pm), Sydney’s Town Hall on 27th & 28th July (10am – 3pm) and Perth’s Conference & Exhibition Centre Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th September (10am – 3pm). Register online for FREE ENTRY or Admission is $10 on the door.
