Western Australia is a vibrant and energetic country full of opportunities waiting for you to explore. It generates employment opportunities and provides qualified individuals with secure, high-quality positions in a range of industries throughout WA, for professionals and tradesmen of all levels of competence.

The Government of Western Australia has already declared that they are overhauling its immigration policy to support industry demand and draw more talented workers as the skilled worker shortage continues to harm the Australian economy. Due to these modifications, Western Australia will become a very desirable jurisdiction for talented immigrants in the future.

Federal Government has set up minimum migration requirements where each state can apply for additional criteria. Some of the relaxed visa requirements include:

  • Waiving off the $200 application fee
  • The employment contract reduced from 12 months to 6 months
  • To demonstrate sufficient funds reduced the applicant's requirements
  • Removing the English requirements for the manager and professional occupations
  • To attract more skilled workers in WA reducing the work experience requirements
