Thousands of Indians move to Australia each year with the intention of residing in the Land of Kangaroos. However, many of them are having difficulty finding work in Australia. It is not due to a lack of skills, but rather to immigrants’ unfamiliarity with in-demand jobs.

Australia publishes an annual list known as the MSOL, which includes all of the in-demand jobs for that year. With accurate knowledge, qualifications, and skills, you can easily find a job in Australia with the MSOL.

We have briefly described the top three choices for Indians looking for work in Australia:


Apply for a Skilled Visa to come to Australia.

For skilled immigrants, Australia has three major immigration pathways:

Australia Subclass 189 Visa

Skilled Independent Visa is a Permanent Residency Visa that is also known as a Subclass 189 Visa. It allows you to settle in Australia without the need for State sponsorship or a work offer. The main need for this Subclass Visa is high English proficiency and an affirmative report for skills assessment. Because of the minimum eligibility standards, it is a popular alternative for foreign nationals, particularly Indians.


Australia Subclass 190 Visa

Skilled Nominated Visa, commonly known as Subclass 190 Visa, is an Australian Permanent Residency Visa. It allows you to stay in Australia indefinitely. The name of the Visa suggests that you will need a nomination from a state to be eligible to apply.


Australia Subclass 482 Visa

The Australia 482 Visa allows firms to fill labour shortages by hiring skilled foreign workers. They are brought in to fill appropriate employment openings in the Australian labour market. It is sometimes referred to as the Temporary Skill Shortage – TSS. The visa allows the holder to stay in Australia for up to four years.


Apply for a Skill Assessment

The appropriate authorities provide reports for talent assessment. It is an agency that verifies whether your skills meet the requirements for working in a given occupation. The organization can also help you prove your credentials in other countries.

These four occupation lists contain a comprehensive list of all qualified skilled vocations for eligible occupations:

  • New Zealand and Australian Standard Occupations’ Classification – ANZSCO
  • Skilled Occupation List Short-term – STSOL
  • Regional Occupation List – ROL
  • Sponsored Regional Migration Scheme – RSMS

The bulk of vocations on each list have their own evaluation authority. The Department of Home Affairs – DHA accepts only such assessment reports for abilities provided for evaluation by the appropriate authorities. It is the candidates’ responsibility to seek the appropriate authority for assessing their occupations. If necessary, they must then obtain a skill assessment. Each authority for skills has its own methods for skill testing, charges, and schedules. Some Subclass Visas and categories require a report for proper skill evaluation. It can also be asked of others. You must be familiar with all of the applicable regulations and policies for the Australia Visa you desire to apply for. It will allow you to establish whether or not a skills assessment is required and, if so, when.
