Visa applications for electricians in Australia

What are Visas?

Visas are an individual country's way of granting entry and permission to live, work or study in their territory or territories. Visas are important because if you live, work or study in another country without one, your stay will be illegal and you will be liable for fines, or even imprisonment and deportation. All electricians in Australia who are from another country will need a visa.

Visas also elevate you to the same legal position as domestic workers in many respects. They are a powerful documents entitling you to the same working conditions and pay as any other worker.

Most of the time, there will be some form of limitation on your visa, usually relating to the activities you can do in the country (for example, you are permitted to study but not to be employed by someone) or relating to the time that you are allowed to do those activities for. As soon as your visa expires, you have to reapply for a visa or leave the country.

Electricians in Australia

Electricians are in demand in Australia. Australia is experiencing a skills shortfall and so gives electricians extra points on their visa application which in turn makes it more likely that they will be granted a visa. The Australian Skills Classification Organisation (ASCO) is responsible for deciding which positions warrant the "in demand" status.
