Here we present the top 3 tips for Indians to find a job in 2022 and settle in Australia: 

1. Immigrate to Australia on a Skilled Visa

Immigrate to Australia on a Skilled Visa

The following are the pathways for skilled migration to Australia: 

Australia Subclass 189 Visa

The Skilled Independent Visa or the Australia Subclass 189 Visa is a Permanent Residency Visa that permits you to settle in Australia without State sponsorship or a job offer. Good proficiency in the English language and a positive report for skill assessment are the chief requirements for this Visa. It is a renowned option for overseas nationals including Indians as this Australia Visa has minimal eligibility criteria. 

Australia Subclass 190 Visa

The Skilled Nominated Visa or Australia Subclass 190 Visa is a Permanent Residency Visa that permits you to indefinitely settle in Australia and work. But this Visa needs you to have a nomination from a State to qualify as indicated by the name. 

Australia Subclass 482 Visa

Australia Subclass 482 Visa allows employers to cater to the scarcity of workers by selecting skilled workers across the world. They are chosen to fill the suitable vacancies in the labor market of Australia. This Visa is also known as the Temporary Skill Shortage Visa. It authorizes your stay in Australia for up to 4 years. 

2. Apply for Assessment of Skills

Appropriate authorities for assessing skills provide the reports for assessment of your skills. These are agencies that confirm if your skills are on par with the standards defined for working in a very suitable occupation in Australia. They assist you in demonstrating your qualifications overseas. 

Some of the Authorities that assess skills for the Australian job market include:

  • TRA - Trades Recognition Australia
  • Engineers Australia

  • VETASSESS - Education and Vocational Training Assessment Services 

The lists of all eligible skilled occupations are outlined within the following 4 lists of occupation in-demand in Australia: 

  • ANZSCO - Australia and New Zealand Classification of Regular Occupations
  • ROL - Regional Occupation List
  • STSOL - Short-term Skilled Occupation List 
  • RSMS - Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme

The majority of the occupations in each list have their individual authority for the assessment of skills. The Department of Home Affairs accepts only a report for skills assessment issued by the appropriate assessing authority. It is the responsibility of the applicants to contact the appropriate authority for their occupation and acquire an assessment for skills if necessary. Every authority for assessment has its charges, timelines, and assessment procedures. 

Obtaining a relevant assessment for skills is mandatory for a few Australia Subclass Visas. It may also be requested for other streams.
