Australia Immigration

Overview

If you live overseas and you’d like the opportunity to live and work in Australia, the first step is to find out more about the visa options that are available to you. See Work visas for skilled migration visa options.

If you have a successful business overseas, you can be nominated by a state or territory government to establish or manage a business or invest in Australia.

Skill Select

SkillSelect is an online service tha t helps Australia manage its skilled migration programme. It helps to ensure that the skilled migration programme is based on Australia’s economic needs. It supports the government in managing who can apply for skilled migration, when they can apply and in what numbers. As a result, the time taken to process a visa application is significantly reduced.

SkillSelect also helps address regional skill shortages. SkillSelect allows intending migrants to indicate if they are willing to live and work in regional Australia. This is of particular benefit to employers experiencing regional skill shortages and state and territory governments attempting to settle migrants in regional Australia.
