Skilled Visa

Skilled Visas

As more and more overseas workers showed their interest in migrating to Australia, the Australian Government established the Skilled Occupation List, which was created to indicate if the occupation of the applicant was considered in high demand in the Australian states and territories.

This way, the applicants interested in residing temporarily or permanently in Australia, with qualifying occupations included in the Skilled Occupation List, could submit their application without a sponsor or nomination (189 Visa), or by applying for a state nomination first (190 Visa). 

Likewise, applicants interested in residing temporarily in areas listed as regional Australia could submit their application after being nominated by a state or territory (489 Visa) or they could extend their stay upon finishing their studies in Australia (485 Visa).
