Skill Select is Australia’s main immigration program for skilled migration. It includes two streams: Short-term Skill Occupation List (STSOL) and Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).

A provisional skilled stream visa may give you temporary residency that leads to permanent residency later on down the line. However, if you do choose one over another, it is best to base your decision off where you see yourself settling once you come here. If that’s Sydney or Melbourne, apply for a provisional skilled stream visa. The Brisbane or Perth looks good as places to live long-term, apply for an employer sponsored stream migration program application instead.
