To work in Australia, overseas residents need to have a valid work visa. There are a range of different visas available depending on your circumstances. If you have certain skills or qualifications that are in demand in the Australian market, you may be eligible for a work visa. Australia is currently facing major skill shortages in the areas of information technology, nursing, automotive trades, engineering and many more areas.
