Statistics from the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection reveal that in 2014-15, 68% of people migrating to Australia are skilled migrants.

The Australian migration programme is designed to build and stabilise the economy, shape society and support the labour market.
If you are seeking to migrate to Australia from India, it is important that you thoroughly understand the Australian migration programme before you apply for a visa. There is no shortage of individuals applying for positions in Australia, so it is vital that you know the visa sub-class that affords you with the highest chance of successfully applying for an Australian visa.

- Great work opportunities abound. Australia can offer you opportunities to work at some of the world’s leading companies and provide you with valuable job experience that can set you up for a successful career in your chosen field.
What Is An Australian Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417)?
The 12 month Australian Working Holiday Visa allows you to do any kind of work of a temporary or casual nature during your stay. As this visa is specific for travellers that are working while in the country, working with an employer for more than six months is not allowed. This visa also limits individuals for studying or training for more than four months.
- This visa is only available for individuals aged between 18 and 31.
- The individual must not have any dependent children accompanying them during their stay in Australia.
- You must be outside Australia when you apply for your first Australian Working Holiday Visa.
- If you apply for your second Australian Working Holiday Visa you must be in Australia when the visa is granted.
What Is Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa (Subclass 457)?
This visa allows you to work in the nominated occupation for up to four years. You can be in or outside of Australia when you lodge your application. You are not required to use a migration agent to lodge a visa application, but due to the extensive paperwork involved in the subclass 457 visa you would be wise to enlist the services of a registered migration agent.
Warning: “Anyone who uses knowledge of migration procedures to offer immigration assistance to a person wishing to obtain a visa to enter or remain in Australia must be a registered migration agent.”
*Only use a registered 457 visa agent*
- You have to be sponsored by an approved company
- You have to have the required skills to fill a position nominated by an approved business
Create an ImmiAccount and submit your application with your Transaction Reference Number as per the application lodged by your employer.
- You need to be nominated to work in a permitted occupation on the current Skilled Occupation List
- Fulfil licensing and registration requirements
- Demonstrate proficient English applicable to the position
- Be nominated by a recognised employer
Due to the complex application process, employing the services of a registered migration agent is widely recommended.
