Australian Govt Invites Nigerian Workers Skilled in 10 Occupations to Relocate, Offers Permanent Residency
The Australian government has announced plans to invite skilled workers from Nigeria to relocate to the country, in a bid to address critical skill shortages. The government has identified ten key occupations that it is seeking qualified workers for, and is offering permanent residency to those who are successful in obtaining a visa. Therefore, if you are a Nigerian citizen with the required skills and qualifications, now is the time to apply!
The ten occupations that the Australian government is seeking workers for are:
- Registered nurses
- Secondary school teachers
- Software and applications programmers
- Industrial, mechanical, and production engineers
- Web developers and designers
- Maintenance planners
- Commercial cooks
- Automotive electricians
To be eligible for a visa, applicants must have the required skills and qualifications for their chosen occupation, as well as meet the English language requirements. Applicants must also undergo a health examination and provide police clearances. Once all of these requirements have been met, interested applicants can submit their Expression of Interest through the Skill Select system.
The Australian government will then invite the highest-ranked applicants to apply for a visa. Successful applicants will be granted permanent residency, which allows them to live and work in Australia indefinitely. Permanent residents are also eligible for certain social security payments and can enroll in Medicare, the national health insurance scheme.
Therefore, if you are interested in relocating to Australia and have the required skills and qualifications, be sure to submit your Expression of Interest as soon as possible! For more information on the process, visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.
This is a great opportunity for skilled Nigerian workers to live and work in Australia permanently! Be sure to spread the word and tell your friends and family who may be interested. Good luck!
