SKILLED VISAS

A strong emphasis on skilled migration continues to be placed by the Australian Government, as well as a commitment to family reunion migration. Migration of skilled workers with relevant work experience and qualifications into Australia helps Australia to address specific skills shortages and increases the size and skill levels of the Australian labor force.
