There are many avenues for organising an Australian permanent residency visa, ranging from partner and family type visas, through to skilled independent visas. The Australian Government are increasingly focusing the migration program on encouraging visa applicants to obtain permanent residency through an employer sponsored process.
Within the Skilled Visa program there are options for a person to apply for a visa based solely on their;
- Work experience and qualifications (skilled independent visa), or
- Based on skills/qualifications and having an employer for sponsorship (employer sponsorship visa), or
- Through having an established track record of success in owning and running a business (business skills visa).
All independent and employer sponsored visa applicants need to nominate an occupation that are deemed to be in short supply. There are a number of different lists for determining an eligible occupation for an application. An assessment of an applicant's employment and/or business background would be required in order to determine what occupations might be suitable for their circumstances.
Employer sponsorship covers the Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) subclass 482 Visa and Employer Sponsored permanent residency. Many migrants to Australia start out on a s Temporary Skills Shortage visa before applying for employer sponsored permanent residency.
The employer sponsored permanent residency program allows for direct entry with the addition of a skills assessment, or through the Temporary Residence Transition stream from a Temporary Skills Shortage visa.
Each applicant will need an initial assessment in order to determine which permanent residency visa they may be eligible for and which visa will suit their requirements. Please send through your enquiry and we can start and assessment and prepare visa recommendations.
