Thank you for your question. At the time of invitation, you must have at least competent English. To prove you have competent English, you must provide evidence that you are a citizen of and hold a valid passport issued by either the United Kingdom, USA, Canada, New Zealand or the Republic of Ireland.

Thank you for your question. To be eligible to apply for the Skilled Independent Visa (subclass 189) you must be aged under 45 when the Department invites you to apply for the visa. You can still apply for the visa if you turn 45 after the Department invites you to apply. Please note, if you turn 45 after you submit your EOI but before the Department invites you to apply, you will not be invited to apply.
