Skilled Migration Visa for Australia
Applicants from Ireland who do not already have a sponsoring employer in Australia may be eligible under the Australian immigration department’s General Skilled Migration scheme. To be considered for jobs in Australia under this category, you must be a professional or skilled migrant over the age of 18 and under the age of 45. Your skills must meet the criteria of one of the Skilled Occupation Lists. There are subclasses of Australian working visa, both permanent and temporary, issued for applicants either inside or outside Australia. These include:
- Skilled independent migrant visa
- Skilled sponsored migrant – for people being sponsored by an eligible relative or a State or Territory government.
- Skilled regional sponsored visa – a three-year provisional visa.
Australian Jobs for Employer Sponsored Workers
Under this category Australian and overseas employers can employ workers with skills and experience that are in high demand. Irish applicants may be eligible for either a temporary or a permanent working visa to Australia. The 457 visa is the most common way for sponsoring employers to allow skilled overseas workers to work for up to four years in Australia. Permanent options include the Employer Nomination Scheme and the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme.
Other Types of Australian Working Visa
Other ways for Irish applicants to obtain a work visa for Australia include:
- Business Development Sponsorship – through a State or Territory Government.
- Specialist Entry – visas for specific professional, cultural or social activities.
- Regional Employment – for young, skilled, English-speaking migrants.
- Australia Working Holiday Visa (417) — for applicants aged 18-30 who want to combine an extended holiday with short-term work in Australia.
