The following is a step-by-step guide to applying for Skilled Independent Subclass 189 as a Business Analyst:

Step1: Occupation List from the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skill List (MLTSSL)

The first and most significant step in the Visa 189 application procedure is to fill out the application form. As Business is listed as ANZSCO Code 261111 in the MLTSSL list, you can go ahead and examine the other criteria. You should also provide relevant documentation that you have the necessary skills and certifications to work in that occupation.

Step 2: Meet minimum eligibility requirement points

The next step is to make sure you can pass the Australia point test with at least 65 points. You will be able to proceed with your Visa 189 application if you receive the minimal number of indicated points determined for the following variables.

  1. Age
  2. Educational Qualification
  3. Work Experience
  4. Skills
  5. Language Requirements
  6. Other Factors

Step 3: Pass the Skill Assessment Test

Because ICT Business Analyst falls under the ICT and computing categories, an application for skills assessment should be filed to the Australian Computer Society (ACS), which is the authority on skills assessment for ICT jobs for immigration reasons. If you prepare the following documents before applying, you will be able to receive a favorable competency assessment:

Step 4: Submit Expression of Interest (EOI) through Skill Select

A series of questions about your educational and work history, talents and abilities, and other relevant information will be asked of you online. ACS and Australian firms that may be searching for employees with a skill set similar to yours will assess your Expression of Interest (EOI). If you get a sponsor or nomination and your EOI fits the Visa 189 eligibility requirements, you will be asked to apply for Visa 189.

Step 5: Apply for Skilled Independent Visa Subclass 189

After receiving your ITA, you can apply for a Skilled Independent Visa subclass 189.

Step 6: Wait for the Subclass 189 Visa Approval

The DIBP will take several months to make a decision on your visa application.
