More than 2000 residents attended the recent Working Abroad expo in Singapore, with DIAC presentation sessions proving popular throughout. Many Singapore residents spoke to our experts about migrating to Australia on skilled visas and submitting expressions of interest through SkillSelect.
There was a variety of nationalities attending the May 11-12 expo, including both Singaporeans and an array of third party nationals. Most residents who attended were nursing, engineering and IT professionals. Migrants who hold such professions are highly sought after as they are able to assist in filling skill shortages in the Australian labour market.
Overall, the expo was a success for the department, with staff helping highly skilled potential migrants better understand the SkillSelect process and the options available for skilled migration.
There has never been a better time for eligible skilled migrants to come to Australia though SkillSelect, with short processing times for successful applicants.
