​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Broadly speaking, migration in Australia is made up of three streams –​ humanitarian, family and skilled. The stream suitable for you depends on many factors, including your age, occupation and employment status. To find out if you are eligible to apply for an Australian visa under one of these streams, visit the
Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s Visa Finder.
If you have a successful background in owning or managing a business or investments, you may also be eligible to apply for business migration.

 

Skilled visas

Skilled visas are for eligible professionals or tradespersons. The skilled stream makes up approximately two thirds of Australia's total migration program and includes both temporary and permanent visas. The two main pathways are employer sponsored and independent or nominated. 

 

​From 1 January 2015, all 457 visa holders will need to contribute to the cost of educating their children in public schools.
