It is actually possible to follow an immigration program without specifying an actual State but to make it easy, I will like to take the migration process state by state.
If you’re looking for business and career opportunities as well as a great lifestyle, make Queensland your destination. Queensland is Australia’s second largest State and the third most populous with more than 4.5 million inhabitants. Brisbane, the capital, is located in the south-eastern corner of the State. Wherever you choose to settle in Queensland, you’ll enjoy the year-round great weather and an enviable outdoor lifestyle.

Skilled workers with experience and qualification are required to support the Queensland economy. There are various ways through which a skilled person can migrate. Skilled Migration Program of Queensland is the most applied program.

Once migrated to Australia, one can enjoy various legal and medical aids and also apply for Australian permanent resident. Australian permanent resident allows migrant to reside and work in Australia. The procedure and processing time of visa depends on the visa category you have opted for. There are various programs for visa under Australian immigration program. These programs are divided under various sub-classes. These sub-classes have further various sections. the visa categories and sub-classes will be discuss in another post Easy Path to Australia 2.
To move to Queensland you need to know that there is nothing difficult in handling the processing yourself but you could equally hire an immigration consultant. Immigration consultants help applicants on every stage of the immigration process because errors can lead to the cancellation of visa application. The consultant's service is to provide assistance in lodging a visa application for applicants and do some follow up but this comes with charges.
If you wish to use any immigration consultant make sure you confirm his/her name on the Australia government website for registered immigration agents or consultants
