Is Tasmania Your Best Australian Visa Option?
Working and Living in Tasmania
Because Tasmania is classified as regional Australian, all the occupations in the Australian government’s occupation lists are available for nomination in this state. This is a visa option and job opportunity that most mainland states cannot currently offer.
Tasmania and Skilled Visas
Is your occupation on a Skilled Visa nomination list? Check if it is by reading this Australian federal government occupations list.
If your occupation is on one of these occupations lists and you are considering moving from overseas to Tasmania, contact Migration Ways and consult with one of our registered and experienced immigration agents.
And if you are currently on a visa attached to one of Australia’s mainland states and need a new visa option, also consult with a Migration Ways visa specialist about the opportunities of you living in Tasmania.
Another opportunity regarding a Tasmanian visa option is to study in Tasmania. Migration Ways can also advise you about this.
NOTE The 187 and 489 visas were discontinued on Nov 16, 2019, and replaced by the 491 and 494 Regional visas.
The 489 Provisional Regional Visa and the 187 Permanent Regional Visa are often forgotten visas that might also be a good option for you.
The 489 visa is a temporary visa that allows skilled workers to work in regional Australia for a maximum of four years. Each Australian state has a visa nomination scheme for its regional areas and a list of occupations that it will nominate. Read more about the 489 and 187 visas.
The Attractions of Tasmania
“Come to Tasmania to indulge in history, vast wilderness areas, Australia’s most spectacular mountains, dazzling beaches and the freshest food and wine imaginable….
“Drive anywhere in the island state and you can go from beach-lined coasts to World Heritage-listed mountain areas in just a few hours. Along the way you’ll pass welcoming farm-gate producers, cellar doors and restaurants specialising in local produce so fresh it’s the envy of the culinary world.” Source: Australia.com
The Lifestyle of Hobart
The capital city of Hobart offers many work and lifestyle opportunities.
“Hobart offers a contrasting blend of heritage, scenery and culture, with world class activities and attractions nearby. Nestled amongst the foothills of Mt Wellington, Hobart combines heritage charm with a modern lifestyle in a setting of exceptional beauty. It’s no wonder Lonely Planet has called Hobart one of the top ten spots to visit in the world right now.
“Hobart is Tasmania’s capital city and the second oldest capital in Australia, after Sydney. Located at the entrance to the Derwent River, its well-preserved surrounding bushland reaches close to the city centre and beaches line the shores of the river and estuary beyond.” Source: Discover Tasmania
South Australia and ACT
Also note that some similar visa opportunities currently exist for South Australian and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). Migration Ways is also expert with visa applications related to this state and territory. Read more here.
