The Occupation Accountant is currently on the MLTSSL list – a critical skill shortage list. This is an indication that Accountants are in demand in Australia. Yet many Accounting applicants with a high points score on their EOI are still waiting for the invitations to be issued to them under the General Skilled Migration Program for 189 visa. Understandably this can be really frustrating for many applicants. And with the inclusion of Caveat requirements under the majority of the Employer Sponsored visas, many promising Accountants are finding it difficult to get an employer willing to sponsor them in Australia.
In this challenging background, various State Nominated Visas are offering potential solutions to the Accountants. Applicants who are ready to relocate to Regional Australia or less densely populated States or Territories are getting invitations with a medium points score.
In order to receive a full skill assessment as an Accountant you will require a qualification which is equivalent to Australian Bachelor Degree and proficient English. For onshore student a relevant Degree qualification along with a completion of Professional Year could get you a full skill assessment.
