The Australian Capital Territory, more widely known as the ACT is Australia’s smallest state, yet is one of its most influential. With Australia’s capital Canberra at its heart, it is a thriving and unique state – with the Federal Government based here, the ACT can offer a great lifestyle with fantastic education systems and prosperous career opportunities.
Despite its size, the ACT is a common first arrival point for many new migrants with the state prepared to sponsor a large number of occupations. This sponsorship drive continues to support the diverse range of industry and economy that grows across Canberra.
In September, the Australian Capital Territory has announced that they will re-commence nominations for a number of new skilled occupations, in addition to the large number of occupations they already offer sponsorship for. This is great news for potential migrants looking to start a new life Down Under.
Included in these new additions are
· ICT Business and Systems Analysts
· Telecommunications Engineering Professionals
· Software and Applications Programmers
· Financial Investment Managers
· Automotive Electricians
· Fashion Designers
· Many more – get in touch to find out if your occupation is sponsored.
Sponsored migration through a state government allows the applicant and their family to reside permanently in Australia, providing they commit to live and work in the state that nominates them for their first 2 years in the country. Importantly, different states sponsor different occupations depending on their individual needs.
