Visas are available for skills that are in demand, fortunately for people with your skills there is an increasing need for knowledge and experience across tech’ as Australia’s booming technology hub continues to mature. This is how Australia has earned the nickname “Silicon Beach” in recent years.
Stay with your sponsor company for 3 years and you can apply for permanent residency in Australia.
Many of Australia’s leading and upcoming tech companies are keen to sponsor international talent like you. Once they nominate you, you receive a 2 or 4 year visa to work with them in Australia. Most of the in-demand skill sets across the technology sector allow for a 4 year visa but it’s best to double check. Either way your visa is renewable, however only the 4 year visa gives you the ability to apply for residency.
If you want to move on from your initial sponsor company your visa can simply be transferred to another company who is eligible to sponsor migrant visas.
