Requirements for employees wishing to relocate

Australasia is always in need of skilled professionals to fill available positions, whether for short or long-term purposes. To fill skills shortages, Australasian countries operate Skilled Migrants Programmes, which change depending on current requirements.

To be eligible for Australia’s Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme, you will either need to be nominated by an approved Australian employer for a job in regional Australia, or be on the list for eligible skilled occupations. For New Zealand, you will need to be offered a job from a New Zealand employer, or be from a country that has a special work scheme.
