Australia is one of the very few countries that still welcomes temporary and permanent migrants. It is open to eligible visitors, international students, skilled workers, business owners, investors, relatives of Australian permanent residents and citizens, distinguished talents and refugees among others.
It also counts with a substantial Migration Program which responds to its economic and social needs. Each year, this program allocates around 190.000 visas to people who would like to migrate permanently to Australia and meet the eligibility requirements. From them, around 128.00 places are for eligible skilled workers, business owners and investors.
If you are interested in migrating temporary or permanently to Australia, our registered migration agents can help you to determine your options and eligibility, as well as to apply to your visa and achieve your migration goals.
Australia’s Visa System is divided in permanent and temporary resident visas.
Permanent resident visas are mainly grouped into business and skilled visas, family and spousal visas, refugee and humanitarian visas and the resident return visa.
Temporary resident visas include student visas, visitor visas, provisional working and skills visas, provisional family and spousal visas among others.
The following visa types are some of the most common ones. If you want to know your eligibility, make an appointment with one of our registered migration agents.
The Australian government grants permanent visas for skilled workers to qualified immigrants who have certain abilities that can contribute to the economic development of the country. These visas are granted according to the parameters of a system called "General Skilled Migration", which requires the applicant to possess certain basic skills. Some of these required skills include: being under 45 years of age, proficiency in English, and holding academic credentials (preferably at a university level). The applicant must also be in a profession, occupation or trade that is on the list of most demanded professions in Australia, and have work experience in their area of competence.
This visa aims to provide opportunities for highly qualified young people to contribute to the local economy. The Australian authorities encourage immigration that meets the needs of the Australian labor market, and contributes to the development of the country.
For a permanent visa, skilled independent applicants do not require sponsorship by a relative or state/territory government.
Due to low levels of population growth in certain regions of Australia, the Australian government has put in place a new work visa program called the ‘Skilled Independent Regional Visa’. This is a new type of temporary visa, that is valid for a period of three years. Interested immigrants must settle in regional areas or areas of low population growth for at least two of the three years for which the visa is valid. After these two years, the applicant can apply for a permanent residence visa.
Australian employers are permitted to hire foreign workers when there are vacancies in the labor market that cannot be filled by Australian workers. This visa can include the following categories: labor agreements, distinguished talent, and transfer of employees to branches. It entitles Australian employers to recruit qualified personnel who are outside of Australia, or workers who are in Australia in temporary situations. It favours employers that are based in less populated areas of inland and rural Australia.
This is a 4 year provisional visa which allows holders to live only in certain areas of Australia. Applicants must be sponsored by an Australian relative living in a designated area, or by a state or territory government.
This visa permits foreigners in Australia to develop their work experience. It is used in situations where applicants wish to complete an internship or work experience placement in an established business. The business is the primary source of support for the applicant during their placement, and is responsible for any training the applicant receives. This visa can be applied for in Australia and from overseas.
Australian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor their partners for migration to Australia. To sponsor a partner, you must be married, in a defacto relationship, have a registered relationship, or be engaged.
This visa allows the child of an Australian permanent resident who is currently outside of Australia to come to Australia to live with their parent. The Child visa subclass 101 is a permanent visa, and allows the child to live permanently in Australia. A Child visa subclass 101 lets an eligible parent sponsor their child to live in Australia indefinitely. If a child is younger than 18 years of age, a parent may apply on behalf of the child.
The work and holiday subclass 462 visa is similar to the working holiday subclass 417 visa. The main differences are that different countries are eligible, quotas apply for most countries, and the seasonal work extension is not available.
