189 Visa

What is a 189 Visa?

The 189 Visa is a points’ driven Visa for skilled workers that are not sponsored by any employer, state/territory or a family member. As an Electrician emigrating to Australia, this Visa is the most widely used and in demand of all of the Visas.

The 189 Visa is also known as ‘General Skilled Migration’ and is currently the most sought after Visa in Australia at the moment.

Only people with selected occupations are eligible to apply for the 189 Visa class and as a UK Electrician you could be one of them.
