Know About Employment Visas
The first step is to understand the different employment visas. An employment visa is a work-based visa that allows applicants to work in Australia for a specified time.
The Department of Home Affairs issues this visa for visitors who want to live and work in the country. There are two types of work visa options:
Temporary work visa:
The applicant can work in Australia for 2 to 4 years on this visa. The time period depends on the needs of the worker and the employer. Getting this visa is legal for those under 45 years. Moreover, they need to have two years of work experience in the same field.
Permanent work visa:
Getting a permanent work visa in Australia is not an easy task. Under Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS), the employer can nominate the name of a worker for a permanent visa.
Under the category of employment visa, there are many visas such as Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa, Skilled Independent visa, Skilled Nominated visa, and Distinguished Talent Visa.
