Work Visas


Short Stay Activity Work Visa (Temporary)

This visa allows applicants to travel to Australia for up to three months to either complete short-term, highly specialised, non-ongoing work (usually only up to 6 weeks), participate in non-ongoing cultural or social activities at the invitation of an Australian organisation; or, in very limited circumstances, participate in an activity or work relating to Australia's interests.

Eligibility

  • Participate in an event or participate in work which is short term and non-ongoing (i.e. maximum 6 weeks only)
  • Have personal attributes or an employment background relevant to the work or activity
  • Have enough money to support yourself and your accompanying family members
  • Have the support of the organisation for which you will be working

This is a specialised visa required for short work requirements in Australia.


Skilled Work Visa (Temporary)

This visa allows you work in Australia for a nominating employer for up to four years. Once you have found an eligible employer willing to sponsor you, the process of obtaining the visa is relatively quick. Eligible employers include your own business, even where it is a new company setup.

Once you have worked in the same position for two years on a 457 visa with the same employer you are eligible to apply for permanent residence by being nominated by your employer for an ENS or RSMA visa. Contact one of our 457 visa Migration agents today to get things started.

Entitlements for Australian Permanent residents

They are free to study at universities or at vocational training schools. They are also able to receive Australian healthcare, access social security pending a waiting period. Permanent residents are not citizens, but they can apply for citizenship once a permanent resident. Permanent residents are also able to sponsor other people for visas or permanent resident.

The new permanent resident can travel in and out of the country for five years after the visa is finalised. If the visa holder wishes to travel in and out of the country beyond the period of five years, he/she must apply for a Resident Return Visa (RRV) or consider an application for Australian citizenship.
