Have you ever considered making Australia your country? Our Land Down Under has plenty to offer, and unlike the situations with global politics that have a rather negative impact on migration in certain countries worldwide, the USA being one of them, Australia is still very much in favour of making foreigners’ dreams come true.
Having high ratings when it comes to health, education, and economy, it’s not difficult to see why many have the Australian dream. While every country has its bureaucracy and specific laws to follow, to which applying for and acquiring a visa are not an exception, you can still find the way to handling it easier, more efficiently, and without having more money going down the drain – get the help of a migrant agent.
At first you may not think it necessary, because you can do it on your own, but that’s exactly where you’re wrong. An experienced, MARA certified, and skilled migrant agent knows all there is to know about the temporary skilled workers’ program, the latest 457 visa changes, and all the documentation necessary for a successful application.
That’s the catch exactly with getting ahead in this game with the help of an agent – while you may have a general knowledge on this specific visa, you may not know the 457 visa changes that involve its abolishing as of March 2018, to be replaced with the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa based on a decision made on 18 April this year, with the reforms implementation already in process.
The agent can further on explain you the visa requirements, i.e. the three stages, starting from the employer, and his/her obligation to have all documentation ready for showing the company is registered, and genuine, meeting prescribed training benchmarks, demonstrating you are committed to employing local labour, and are now also in search of skilled workers from overseas, so that he/she can apply and become a standard business sponsor (SBS).
This is followed by identifying the exact position the employer (SBS) wants to be filled by an overseas skilled worker, showing how the exact nominated person is skilled and experienced for the job, and meeting the same criteria as those for local employees, with the equal salary rate.
Once all this has been completed, then the skilled worker can apply for the visa, of course meeting the nomination rule (be nominated by a sponsor), the skill requirements (CV, degree), and registration of the occupation-to-be (licenses, references), and have the proof (certificates) of English language proficiency – that they speak a certain level of the language. The latter applies to foreigners from non-English speaking countries.
If this is your dream, don’t forget to check the list of Australia’s shortage skills, and the most in-demand jobs, and get the help of professionals for a simpler visa application process.
