Australia remains one of the most attractive immigration destinations for skilled workers and families around the world. However, this means Australia can be selective over who they accept each year to join them.
If you love sports, outdoor living, beaches and a great standard of life Australia may be just what you have been looking for.
There are several categories for Australian permanent residency visas and a range of immigration opportunities to suit a variety of skill sets and education levels. We focus here on  just two of the skilled worker visas.  For both the Independent Skilled Worker Visa (189) and the State Sponsored Skilled Worker Visa (190) potential applicants must meet the following basic criteria:
  • Be under 50 years of age 
  • Demonstrate competence in the English language
  • Possess skills or qualifications that address the needs of the Australian labour market
  • Your skills must be in demand
  • Good Character
  • Good health
To find out if your experience qualifies you for either visa, we can advise you by completing our assessment or you can view our international employment solutions click here.

 What is the difference between the two Skilled Worker Visas (189 & 190)?

 Independent Skilled Worker Visas (189) provide the opportunity to move to Australia to seek employment without prearranged sponsorship.

Sponsored Skilled Worker Visas (190) require that the applicant has one of the following:

  • An eligible relative living in Australia who is willing to act as sponsor, or
  • A nomination from a State or Territory government agency.

What do Skilled Work Visas allow me to do?

 Successful applicants for an Australian work visa are entitled to:
  • Reside permanently in Australia and engage work opportunities
  •  Receive subsidised healthcare
  •  Study at a school, vocational education programs, or university
  •  Become eligible for Australian Citizenship in time
We provide help with every aspect of your emigration to Australia from visas to banking, pensions, shipping and more.

Investment, Retirement, Family, Study, Sponsorship. New Business

These are all additional routes people use to enter and remain Australia.  For those not lucky enough to qualify for a skilled visa or does not want to work anymore.  The good news is they deliver more visas per year than the 189 or 190 visa however they are capped and limited spaces are often quickly filled.  Once a cap is reached the visa class is capped and queued until it opens again.  a little like buses when you have to wait for the next one if the one at the stop is full already.  That analogy aside we can assist people to secure over 600 different visas.
