Australia Immigration Overview

The history of skilled immigration in Australia dates back to the end of the second World War. Australia reinforced its shortage of workforce by incentivizing several foreign skilled workers, businessmen, students to work & settle in Australia.

The journey since the 1970s when the Australian immigration department removed restrictions by nationality, race, ethnicity, gender for new immigrants till the present era of globalization, Australia has been one of the most immigration friendly & immigrant preferred destinations.

Australia Immigration Programs

Australian cities like Sydney and Melbourne have been the major attractions among foreigners for work and study opportunities, especially among immigrants from Asian, African, and European countries.

In recent years, several smaller cities and regional areas in Australia have attracted immigration for work including Broome and Geraldton in Western Australia. Other smaller cities in provinces like Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria offer opportunities in Manufacturing, Construction, Food & Beverages & also Education.

The major pathways for Australia immigration are as follows:
    • Work stream permanent visa
    • Family stream permanent visa
    • Business/ investor stream permanent visa

The General Skilled Migration (GSM) program is the most popular Australia immigration program among foreign skilled workers. The major visa types under this work stream permanent visa program are:

    • Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)
    • Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
    • Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489)

Foreign workers who possess the skills that are in demand in Australia may apply for a Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) or will be nominated by provinces (subclass 190) like Victoria, Queensland, South Australia.

Additionally, temporary visa options (like subclass 489) are also available for recent international graduates (students graduating from Australian institutions) or foreign entrepreneurs to work & live in Australia upto 4 years and then apply for permanent residence.

Family reunification programs allow the existing permanent residence of Australia to sponsor their relatives for an Australia visa.
