Are you an electrician moving to Australia? At Visa Go Australia we understand it can be a daunting process. Below, we outline key considerations when moving to Australia.
Electrician visa options
Electricians are in demand in Australia. This means there are lots of jobs and visa options available to you. Before you start spending money on the visa process, ensure you’re eligible to apply for a visa first.
Seeking advice from an experienced Migration Agent will help you understand which visas you can apply for. We offer visa consultations with our Migration Agent for just $100 AU. We think it’s a worthwhile investment before spending thousands on a skills assessment and visa.
Complete your electrician skills assessment
If you’re an electrician moving to Australia, you need to ensure you can work. The skills assessment is a part of this process.
You must be licensed to work as an electrician in Australia. Obtaining a positive skills assessment will issue with an Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR). Once you have an OTSR, you can apply for a provisional electrical license.
Having a positive skills assessment will also give you the option of applying for a permanent residency visa. This is the best pathway for those looking to move to Australia on a long-term basis.
If you’re applying for a short-term visa like the working holiday, you can use our skills assessment only service. This includes a dedicated case processor to help you obtain a positive skills assessment. It’s cheaper than our full visa service.
Are you ready to move to Australia as an electrician? There may be several visa options available to you, so it’s best to speak with a Migration Agent to find out what’s best suited.
Electrician is on Australia’s skills list. This means skilled visas and employer sponsored visas are available. Australia’s working holiday visa is another popular option to live in work in Australia as an electrician.
