Queensland says “now is the perfect time” to apply for immigration visas
On November 26, the Queensland State Government announced that "now is the perfect time" to apply for a business, skilled or investor retirement visa - with a reduction in their processing times – in some cases of only a week – enabling a fast, effective visa process which can help you quickly realise your dream of migrating Down Under.
Skilled Visas are aimed at both skilled migrant workers and postgraduate students who want to live and work in the Sunshine State permanently, through sponsorship from the State Government of Queensland.
Situated in the north-east of the country, Queensland is the second largest and third most populous state in Australia, with over four million residents. In terms of the economy, it has one of the fastest growing economies in the country, having made the majority of its income in the retail, construction and health sectors.
Due to this substantial economic growth there are a wide range of job opportunities for skilled migrants particularly if you are able to nominate a profession on the Queensland Skilled Occupation List (QSOL).
Some of the professions which are currently in demand in the Queensland area include engineers, accountants, IT professionals and nurses among many more.
In addition, you must also meet a number of other requirements, including demonstrating a good level of English language and being under the age of 50.
