Did you know you might be eligible for an Australian Work Visa?

The Australian Federal Government is looking for talented migrants with skills which are in short supply in Australia.  Three lists, the Medium and Long‑term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), the Short‑term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) and the Regional Occupation List (ROL), list occupations which are in demand in certain areas or under certain conditions.  If your job is listed on one of these lists you may qualify for an Australian Work Visa which will allow you and your family to move to Australia!

Perhaps you have been keeping an eye on these lists and so far your occupation has not come up.  But as the Australian government regularly updates these lists to meet local demand and employers’ needs the list is updated too and on March 11th a number of occupations were added to the lists. The list will remain dynamic and change as Australia’s needs change so it’s best to familiarize yourself with these list as the currently stand.

The MLTSSL, STSOL and ROL are available from your immigration consultant, but it is a good idea to acquaint yourself with the occupations on the list and to keep an eye out for changes that may affect you.

We have summarized the most recent changes below.
