Working on a visa

Did you know that visa costs range from as little as $285 taking one week to process, up to $3800 taking two years? A visa may last for only one day or may entitle the holder to a permanent stay in Australia.

Working on a visa

A visa that suits the work intended is required in order to work in Australia. The Australian Government offers work visas for:

  • skilled workers
  • people participating in specific activities
  • working holiday makers
  • highly specialised workers
  • trainees (short term)
  • experienced business people
  • investors
  • Australia’s offshore oil and gas industry.

If a sponsor is required to be eligible for the grant of a work visa, this can be sourced independently, or an expression of interest can be placed using SkillSelect.

Common classes of Visa
