Australian Skills in Demand


Australian employers are unable to fill job vacancies in numerous occupations due to a shortage of skilled workers. Recent reports show that there are skill shortages in many professional occupations, majority of trades, and some specialised skills in Information and Communication Technology. Australian Government is actively addressing these shortages through the Skilled Migration Program, with 200,000 work rights visas being made available between 2003-2006.

Skiled migrants are needed:

Coming to Australia on a Skilled Migrant Visa provides Australian Permanent Residence, with full work rights for you, and if relevant, your partner, and the best employment prospects. In order to qualify for this type of visa you must be in an occupation for which there is a high demand in Australia. These high-demand occupations are included on the Skilled Occupations List (SOL) published by DIMIA, the Australian Immigration Department.
