Australian Work Visa Options for UK and Irish Nationals

The Australia Visa Bureau provides visa services for working holidaymakers and migrants to Australia.

There are two main visa options for UK and Irish Nationals who want to work in Australia: Skilled Migration and Working Holiday Visas.

The General Skilled Migration Programme consists of a number of independent and sponsored visas designed to allow skilled workers and their families to emigrate to Australia. Skilled trades workers are in particularly high demand. Interested applicants are encouraged to complete an Online Skilled Visa Assessment.

The Working Holiday Visa Programme is designed to allow people between 18 and 30 years of age to live, work and travel in Australia for up to 24 months. You can now apply online for a Working Holiday Visa to Australia.
