You Have a Skill

Australia is often short of people in certain positions such as accountants, economists, surveyors, engineers, metallurgists, scientists, psychologists, therapists, optometrists, pharmacists, dentists, gynaecologists, pathologists, midwives, nurses, even teachers.

If you have the qualifications as well as one year's recent work experience, and scored at least 7 in IELTS English language test, you can apply for a skilled migration visa to Australia.

You Have a Business

If you own a successful business, and have a history of running successful businesses, you can apply for a business migration visa to Australia.

Like with the other visas on this page, it is smart to use a reputable visa agency to make sure you get the things right and actually get your visa approved.
This is an important step in your life if you have decided on moving to Australia, so don't get it wrong!

Visa First Helps You to Move to Australia

One reputable visa agency that I can definitely recommend is Visa First.

They don't only make sure you don't get your application rejected.

They also get you started with your new life in Australia.

They get you a tax file number, a bank account, internet, a mail box before you even arrive - they have thought of all the steps you will have to make and do them for you.

They can even do airport pickups and look for jobs and accommodation for you.

On top of making sure you get your visa approved they also save you a lot of time and hassle as you don't have to work all the steps out yourself and then do them.

Get your questions answered on free live chat: In the top right hand corner of Visa First web pages is a little box for 'live chat' where you can ask any question about your situation and any visa to Australia, including migrant visas, and get immediate answers for free from a customer service representative!
