Recently I heard Australia is having shortage of some specific skill sets and they are changing their Critical Skill Listing. Mostly in March they will be publishing the list. As Java/J2EE was in MODL (Migration Occupations in Demand List), it's most likely these java/j2ee skills would be again in demand. FYI, CSL is considered as priority one for Australia Government. Check this site : http://www.immi.gov.au/ and be updated. Happy Immigration to all !!!

Arulk, you are living in Sydeny. Can you please give brief regarding software field in Australia. If some one wants to migrate to Australia from India or other country then what would be the best way ? Whether Employers directly offer to foreigners or a person must has PR and valid Australian degree. You can share some popular consultant names who helps in migration and getting jobs in Australia. This would be great help to many people for their future.. Thanks for sharing details, keep posting updates..

Hi Maharsh,

I would like to provide some thoughts as far as i know.

1. Australia is a very small country unlike the US, which is a big country. Obviously, the opportunities are less.
2. Migrating to Aus - Yes to need to apply for a PR which may cost you around INR 2 lakhs (approx).
3. In my current company, i am working in a Australian project. Going by my experience, i can say that it is bit tough to get a job in Australia.

This is because Australian employers prefer candidates with local IT experience over foreigners - which means if you have any IT experience in Aus thorough any onsite stint, then it will be pretty easy for you to get a job there.

Else, it is really tough - This does not mean that you cant a job there - But it may take more time.

If you are financially stable & have the time, then you can go for it. But please be aware - you have to first land there and then search for jobs. If you are lucky and technically sound, you may get a job even in 1 month & on the other hand it may even take around one year.
