2022 Point Calculator for Australian Visa: Check if you’re eligible!

The immigration process of moving to Australia is dependent on the Australian PR Points calculator.

What is Australian PR?

Every year, hundreds of people from across the globe immigrate to Australia on a PR visa.
With this visa, you can live and work in Australia for five years. After three years, you can apply for permanent citizenship.
The two main eligibility criteria for visas are scoring a minimum of 65 points, and your occupation should be on the Skilled Occupations List.


You need PR points to apply to any of the following three subclasses:

  1. Skilled Independent visa in Subclass 189
  2. Skilled Nominated visa in Subclass 190
  3. Territory nominated/ sponsored visa in Subclass 489

The 65 points that you need to achieve for a PR visa are dependent on several factors.
