Australian system is point-based. For independent skilled immigration you have to get 65 points. You could get points from your age, English level (IELTS), education or degree, professional experience, partner skills and some additional rare requirements. The details are here.

Skills, education, degree for you and your partner have to be assessed by Australian authorities.

Then you may submit an application for immigration. Processing time is 6 months. Then you will ask for the visa.
