The Pros and Cons of Different Types of Australian Work Visas

Dreaming of a new life in Australia? Whether you are a skilled worker, a young professional, or an employer seeking talent – Australia offers a range of work visa options to help you achieve your goals.

189 Skilled Independent Visa

The 189 Visa is for skilled workers who do not need to be sponsored by an employer, state or territory, or a member of their immediate family.

This visa gives you and all dependents Permanent Residency upon visa approval. This means you get the right to live and work in Australia including access to Medicare (the Australian health care system). The application process can be lengthy and competitive, and you must satisfy the eligibility requirements, including a high level of English proficiency.

190 Skilled Nominated Visa

Skilled Nominated Visa (Subclass 190)

The 190 Visa is for state and territory-nominated skilled workers. The benefits of this visa include expedited processing and additional points for the visa application, as well as the opportunity to reside and work in a particular Australian state or territory.

You must be nominated by an Australian state or territory government and satisfy the eligibility requirements.

186 Employer Nomination Scheme Visa

Employer-Sponsored Visa (Subclass 186)

The 186 ENS Visa is best for skilled workers who have been offered employment and sponsorship in Australia. This visa gives you and all dependents Permanent Residency upon visa approval. This means you get the right to live and work in Australia including access to Medicare (the Australian health care system).

482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa

Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (Subclass 482)

The 482 TSS Visa is intended for skilled workers with a job and sponsorship offer from an Australian employer.  Compared to the 186 Visa, the 482 Visa is a temporary visa which can lead to Permanent Residency after 3 years. The 482 visa is a very good option for migrants with lower English language skills. The 482 Visa has no age limit!

417 Working Holiday Visa and 462 Work and Holiday Visa

The 417 and 462 WHV Visa subclasses are intended for young adults between the ages of 18 to 30 who want to work and travel in Australia for up to 1-3 years. The ability to work in any job for up to 6-12 months with each employer is one of the benefits of this visa, also the opportunity to travel and explore Australia throughout your stay. Some passport holders have an extended age limit up to 35.

This visa type, however, is only available to citizens of specific countries, and you must meet certain eligibility requirements.

From the Skilled Independent Visa to the Working Holiday Visa: each visa has its own set of advantages and requirements. Do your research, talk to the experts, and start planning your life in Australia today!   EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS WITH OUR TEAM TODAY!
