Australia offers Special Visas package for regions with skill shortages

The Government of Australia has offered Special Visas package for regions with skill shortages. Australian regions with niche shortages of skills have been identified for these visas. The Turnbull Government has launched the TSS visas replacing the 457 visas in 2018.

Meanwhile, the Government is repeatedly under pressure from businesses and industry stakeholders to cater to the shortage of skilled workers, as quoted by the SBS News.

322 Special labor agreements are already in place with specific industries and business in Australia. Alan Tudge the Minister for Citizenship has said that the Government intends to go a step further. The deals will be based on locations of the regions for Special Visas package, he added.

The Special Visas package is offered based on the discretion of the government. This is for skill shortages that cannot be filled by local workers in Australia. These must also not come under the List of Skills Shortages. This has 600 plus occupations that qualify for Australia Skilled Visas.

Firms in Australia must demonstrate their inability to identify local workers via national advertisement. In most of the cases, the visa holders will have a pathway for Australia PR.

Fronditha Care the aged care center in Melbourne is amongst the several businesses that have received the special visas to cater to the shortage of workers. These are similar to other skilled visa programs in Australia. This includes the program such as Subclass 190 Skilled Permanent Visa and Subclass 489 Regional Skilled Provisional visa.
