A temporary visa also known as a provisional visa can provide permanent residency pathways. Temporary work visas have key features and requirements. The idea is that you have core skills that meet the labour market needs in Australia. Australia has employers or companies who are struggling to find suitable labour for those essential skills. They try to source locally and conduct recruitment activities to fill those important roles firstly with Australian Citizens and permanent residents.
If their attempts to employ local candidates is unsuccessful, they can look to source candidates from the international overseas market. The candidates who apply for these positions and are successful have to meet specific criteria by the Department of Home Affairs (DOHA). The visa process connecting the company and the suitable candidate has to take place to demonstrate a case to the DOHA as to why the overseas skilled applicant should be granted their temporary work visa.
There are a few options available to temporary work skilled visa applicants through the main employer sponsored visa streams including but not limited to the following subclasses:
Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – for people nominated by a State or Territory government or sponsored by an eligible family member to live and work in regional Australia.
Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494) – for people sponsored by an employer in regional Australia
Temporary Skill Shortage visa (subclass 482) – for people who are nominated for a skilled position by an approved employer sponsor, have the right skills to do the job and meet the relevant English language requirements
How we assist you
We liken the process to strategically connecting three important puzzle pieces and making them fit. We present what the candidate or applicant has to offer and link that with what the employer is providing to meet the regulations of the appropriate visa subclass. The procedures then get started to build your case with a number of evidentiary documents to demonstrate the link for all pieces which are then assessed by the DOHA who are the final decision makers. It is extremely important to have experienced and trustworthy migration agents who add one more ingredient to the mix – care factor. With the risk of sounding cliché’d our history shows that more than 1000 successful applicants attest to the fact that we put our heart and soul into our work. This allows us to want to dig deep and leave no stone unturned to help you.
The technical and compliant aspects of meeting our obligations as migration agents in Australia is that we are required by law to keep up to date with regular visa regulations and policies which are constantly changing at least twice a month. This is the area that provides our clients with further assurance of our capabilities.
Temporary work visas are for applicants who hold a particular skill aligned to the ANZSCO and immigration skilled occupations list.
