Applicants can get visas to work in Australia either temporarily or permanently. For more information on permanent options for skilled workers, see Australia Migration
For most categories of work visa, applicants must be sponsored by an employer who is unable to find skilled workers, or by a state/territory where there is a shortage in that region.
There are also special categories for:
- Doctors and Nurses
- Regional Employment (such as in rural areas)
- Air & Sea Crew
- Seasonal Workers
- Working Holidays (age 18-30, eligible countries only)
