Work in Australia
Skilled Migration

The skilled migration to Australia caters to individuals who can be employed for skills needed to fulfil the shortages in the country. The lists of these skills are maintained by the Department of Immigration and Border Control. This category of visa allows the candidates to work and stay anywhere in Australia according to the type of their application. While on applying individually, they can choose where they would like to work and live, on being regionally sponsored, they can live in that specific region for the designated amount of time – before moving to any other part of the country.

For the candidates willing to migrate to Australia for work, the visa that suits their work is required.
