Updated

Great news for Skilled Migrants Looking to Migrate to Australia

Do you know skilled bricklayers can apply for Working Visa Australia?

Australia is rapidly heading for a skill shortage in the trades and services sector with Bricklaying the most recent occupation to hit the country’s ‘In demand’ list.

The countries’ residential Real estate boom, record high property prices and steady increase in government infrastructure projects have all fueled this demand for Bricklayers.

With so much construction work taking place, what the country really needs is a strong labor force and people to actually build the houses.

This rising demand opened up new whole opportunities so skilled bricklayers can apply for Working Visa Australia.

Yet Bricklaying as a career has become increasingly snubbed in preference of the ‘trendier’ construction jobs such as electricians, inevitably leaving the industry in dire circumstances.

So the news of skilled bricklayers can apply for a working visa in Australia is pleasant news.

You may be eligible to apply for one of the visa subclasses under the General Skilled Migration program as long as you could pass at least 65 points and have a positive Skills Assessment.
