Australia is set to unveil the New Skills in Demand Visa to fill a 800,000 job vacancies

In a groundbreaking move to bridge the workforce gap and fortify its labor market, Australia is set to launch the all-new “Skills in Demand” visa, replacing the Temporary Skills Shortage Visa (subclass 482). There are 800,000 job vacancies waiting to be filled, this innovative visa program offers an opportunity for skilled individuals seeking to make their mark Down Under.

Here’s what you need to know about the game-changing “Skills in Demand” visa:

1. Four year validity term with a pathway to Permanent Residency:
The visa comes with a 4-year validity, providing ample time for individuals to contribute to the Australian workforce. What sets it apart is the clear route it offers to obtaining permanent residency, making it an attractive prospect for those dreaming of calling Australia home.

2. Flexibility to switch employers:
Emphasising flexibility, the visa allows holders to switch employers while their visa is still valid. A unique feature that provides individuals with the freedom to explore diverse career opportunities, enhancing their professional growth during their time in Australia.

3. Accelerated visa processing:
The Specialist Skills Pathway ensures visas are processed within a remarkable 7 days, demonstrating Australia’s commitment to swiftly integrating skilled professionals into the workforce. Other streams though requiring 21 days, maintain efficiency in catering to the nation’s urgent skills needs.

4. Employer Support Scheme:
Australia is exploring a groundbreaking scheme where firms may cover the recruitment costs for overseas workers. This initiative not only encourages businesses to tap into global talent but also eases the financial burden on prospective migrants.

5. Streamlined accredited sponsor pathway:
