South African's have always seen Australia as a popular emigration destination, but getting accepted into the country on a permanent basis has traditionally been a bit of a challenge.
Australia, like other countries, keeps a list of the skills that the country is short on. Immigrants applying for visas are given preference if they hold those skills.
Briefly.co.za gathered with the recent comments from Down Under about fast-tracking visas for white South Africans, perhaps you want to take a look at the Australian skilled occupation list to see if you'll qualify to move there permanently.
Those looking to move to Australia for General Skilled Migration are required to nominate an eligible occupation from the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List. (MLTSL)
The following three visa types can nominate an occupation from the list:
- Subclass 189 (Skilled—Independent) visas;
