Work in Australia

However, unlike many Asian countries, most jobs are only offer to people who have legal rights to stay and work in Australia and that implies people who have already obtained their visa which enable them to have the status to work in the various parts of Australia (check out Skilled Migration in ‘Migrate to Australia’ )

There are also some of them who after obtaining their permanent residency (PR), took their own time waiting for an ideal job in Australia to come while they continue working in their home country to find that their given period of visa grant is running short and lost their PR status. This arises when many of the Australian jobs were given priority to those who are already living in Australia and could attend face-to-face interviews and start work immediately.

On 18 April 2017, the Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, Prime Minister of Australia and the Hon Peter Dutton MP, Minister for Immigration and Border Protection jointly announced that the Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457) to be abolished and replaced with the completely new Temporary Skilled Shortage (TSS) visa which will support businesses in addressing genuine skill shortages. This is a drastic change and it affects many categories of jobs of people who rely on 457 to obtain their PR. It is hence important to speak to us and get yourself informed of the Australian job market and updated on the migration rules as they often change within a few years, including the skilled occupations list which allows professionals to migrate when their skills are in demand.
