As we have already talked about in other posts here on the blog, one of the ways to get permanent residency in Australia is to have your profession on the list of occupations sought by immigration and apply for a process called Skilled Migration, which encompasses the famous points system. (if you don’t understand anything, read this text first and then come back here ;). But some of the main doubts and fears of those who intend to migrate to Australia are:
“What if my profession is not on the demand list?”
In this post we are going to talk about other possibilities, paths and strategies so that people who are not eligible for the Skilled Visa can still go on to achieve the long-awaited permanent residence in Australia and immigrate here alone or with their whole family.
How can I get permanent residency in Australia if my profession is not on the list?
To answer this question we have the support of the Registered Immigration Agents of Bravo Migration, an immigration consultancy based here in Sydney and in partnership with Vamos Fugir (so much so that they are responsible for our visa process!).
According to them, the strategy outlined will vary according to the profile and professional goals of each person. To make the explanation clearer, we are going to outline 3 different and very common profiles among people who seek Bravo to plan an immigration process to Australia:
1 – The person who has not graduated from college yet;
2 – The person who is trained, does not have the profession on the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), but is willing to change areas;
3 – The person who is trained, does not have the profession on the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), but is NOT willing to change areas because he loves what he does.
In other words, each case will need a different strategy, so it is essential that the person does this personalized follow-up directly with a Registered Immigration Agent, since every detail can influence the success (or not) of the final result: permanent residence in Australia and then citizenship. But, despite not being a cake recipe, the common point for each of these profiles is: you will have to study!
1 – The person who has not graduated from college yet:
She will have to study here in Australia. It can be a technical course at Certificate IV + Diploma level (with at least 2 years of total duration) or a college, but the most important thing is that the chosen profession is on the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) so that at the end of the course this person will be able to apply for permanent residency in Australia through the Skilled Migration Program.
2 – The person who is graduated
Someone with this profile will PROBABLY also need to come up with a plan of study (either a technical course, another college or a postgraduate degree in a field that is in demand) to be able to apply for permanent residency in Australia or have a chance to receive an offer. of sponsorship that leads to a PR later. But once again: this is not a rule, it will depend a lot on your profession, time of experience, profile and many variables.
Australia is investing heavily in cities outside the major capitals and has announced new visas to attract professionals to these areas. Keep an eye out for more information we will be publishing about this.
3 – Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List :,
One of the most suitable paths for those who enjoy the profession and want to work in the area of training in Brazil, is to do a postgraduate course (Master Degree or Doctorate) for 2 years to be able to get the Graduate Visa when you finish the course and have the right to stay in the country for another 2 years, being able to work full time.
