Australian Visas

Visas are a legal form of document that gives a person permission to enter a country different than their own country of citizenship, or passing through a foreign country.

To obtain an Australian visa, you must first determine what kind of visa that you are eligible to apply for (whether an Employer Sponsored Visa, Student Visa, Partner Visa etc) before applying.

It is important that you understand the full costs and process involved with applying for an Australian Visa, which is why we recommend using an experienced and registered migration agency, such as Point Migration Agency, to ensure you have greater chances of a successful application and that your money is also well spent.

For more information on each visa type or subclass, please click the headers or individual visa links below, or feel free to contact us to arrange an appointment to discuss.

We also recommend visiting our FAQ page for more general information.

For people looking to live and work in Australia, there are several forms of working visas available, each with their own set of conditions and restrictions.

Some of these visas can be a pathway for acquiring permanent residence status in Australia, through either the Employment Nomination Scheme (ENS) or the Regional Skilled Migration Scheme (RSMS).
