There are a number of temporary visas also available for entry into Australia:
You may choose to visit Australia for a holiday under a Tourism visa
. This is the most popular visitor visa to Australia.
Some people may need to enter Australia as a Sponsored Visitor
because of various reasons, including their ability to support themselves whilst in Australia - a sponsored visitor visa provides security that the visitor will be looked after whilst in Australia and will depart when required.
The Working Holiday Visa
is available to those who wish to travel around Australia and also participate in some work whilst doing this. This visa is for people aged 30 years of age and under
There are limited options that you may wish to consider when wanting to work temporarily in Australia. There is a temporary business visa scheme that will allow you to enter Australia and work for up to 4 years if you are sponsored by an Australian or Overseas Business Sponsor.
There are also regional migration schemes that may also be of interest that will allow you to enter Australia temporarily to work and these visas can lead to permanent residency if you meet the correct criteria after some time in Australia.
The migration programme also has visas that may be used if you wish to enter Australia to organise an event or conference. Further information about these visas can be obtained from a migration matters consultant firstname.lastname@example.org
Australia has a comprehensive Student Visa
regime that allows you to enter Australia and study within the school system at basically any level from primary school to University. Recently the Australian Government announced that a new Trade Skills Training Visa would be developed.
This visa will allow full fee paying trainees to undertake a pilot apprenticeship programme in Regional Australia. On successful completion of this apprenticeship, trainees will be able to migrate to a regional area of Australia. This is one of the changes that the Australian Government hopes will assist in filling the shortage of trade skills in Australia.
The Business Skills
visa class encourages successful business people to settle permanently in Australia and develop new or existing businesses. These visas are a two-stage visa which involves a temporary visa that can lead to permanent residency. However, you do not have to take the permanent residency, you may apply and enter Australia to temporarily stay onshore to establish your business and may then return to your other businesses overseas.
There are also Employer Nomination
visas that allow Australian employers and approved overseas businesses to bring employees to Australia to temporarily assist in various skilled occupations. Contact a Migration Matters consultant today for further details email@example.com
