We suggest that you only apply for jobs when your visa to live and work in Australia has been issued. The visa application process can take time, and employers are less likely to employ you if you don’t know when you will arrive in Australia and don’t have a work visa.
If you are not an Australian citizen you will need a visa to enter Australia. The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) is responsible for all Australian visas.
