Visa Provision

Prospective candidates interested in the Web Developer role may find that they cannot apply for a visa under the General Skilled Migration Program, as this occupation is not listed on the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), which typically receives higher demand.

If you are looking to work in this field in Australia, you will need to explore alternative avenues since none of the eligible visas that Australia offers apply to this occupation. If you are under the age of 31, you have a promising opportunity to qualify for a Working Holiday Visa to Australia. This visa allows you to live and work in Australia for a duration of up to two years, depending on your individual circumstances.

Alternatively, if your partner or spouse possesses relevant experience or is employed in a profession currently listed on the MLTSSL or STSOL, you may consider them as the primary applicant instead of yourself.
