Information on skilled migration

Australian employers can sponsor and employ skilled workers from overseas who have recognised qualifications and skills/or experience in particular skilled occupations. If you are thinking of sponsoring an overseas skilled worker to address a skilled labour shortage, the Australian Government offers both temporary and permanent visa options for employers.
