Visa Provision

Individuals aspiring to become Chief Information Officers have the option to apply for a Skilled Nominated 190 visa or a Skilled Regional Nominated 489 visa, both of which are aligned with the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). However, if you are in this profession and aim to meet the criteria for a General Skilled Migration visa, you must initiate the process by seeking a state nomination before your journey to Australia.

It’s noteworthy that despite this occupation being listed on the STSOL, there may be limited demand for professionals in this field across different regions. In such instances, if a particular occupation is not specified in the online assessment because it’s not genuinely required by any state or territory in Australia, you might consider exploring the possibility of securing an employer sponsorship in Australia.
