Visa for Economists in Australia

If you are an economist and want to obtain a Permanent Residence in Australia, there are several paths that you can explore. Here you will know the most common and recommended paths and learn step by step how to obtain your visa for economists in Australia.

⚠️  IMPORTANT: The information that we will present to you now IS OF A GENERAL CHARACTER and is based on the list of trades in demand as of the date of publication. Federal and state governments frequently review the trades that their respective economies need and based on this they introduce, change, and remove trades from their lists. This can happen at ANY time and without prior announcement.

What ocupation are we talking about?


When we speak of carpenters we refer to the profession of Economist 224311:

He conducts economic research and analysis, develops and applies theories about the production and distribution of goods and services and people’s financial behavior and spending, and advises governments and organizations on economic policy.


⚠️  This trade is on the HIGH demand list: This means that it is desired by the Australian government and could obtain residency anywhere in Australia as long as you meet the requirements requested by the government.

Step 1: Validate with VETASSESS

You must have two requirements:

1) Have HIGHLY relevant degree

2) Have one year of verifiable and paid POST title experience within the last 5 years.
If your title is NOT highly relevant, even if you have a lot of experience, they DO NOT validate you. And obviously without post title experience you cannot validate.


VETASSESS charges $ 968 – $ 1,628 AUD

Documents to validate

– Passport

– Photo

– Resume

– Titles and notes (translated)

– Letter of reference from your job

– Evidence of payment (one of the following):

  • Three payroll stubs per year
  • Tax declaration of your country
  • Pension fund receipts
  • Bank statements

Step 2: comply with state policy to be invited or seek a sponsor


VISA 482: If you have at least 2 years of work experience (here or anywhere in the world)

VISA 186: If you have at least 3 years of work experience (here or anywhere in the world)

The sponsor will have to pay fees for the privilege of hiring you.



VISA 190: 60 – 80 POINTS if you comply with the state immigration policy

VISA 491: 50 – 80 POINTS if you comply with the migration policy of the rural area

Where should I go to find the residence?

If you have a LOT of experience (2 years +), you could seek residence in metropolitan cities to through labor sponsorship.

If you do NOT have a lot of experience (less than 2 years) then I would advise you to go to a rural area (Adelaide, Darwin, Perth, Tasmania)

We recommend Gamba Migration 100%. After many, many migration consultations with other agents who assured us our case was too complex and impossible for a skilled visa, I found Jorge's videos on Youtube, and we had a consultation with Jorge. Jorge listened to our personal case, he advised us, and took on our application knowing we were not presenting a standard application, but willing to learn from the experience and obtain a successful outcome. Jorge received our calls on more than one occasion, he met us in person for over 2 hours, and assigned Juana and Andrea as our case officers (who were always very thorough with our documentation ensuring not a detail was missing). Thank you Gamba Migration for making our pathway in Australia possible!! We are grateful for your fantastic work and for being an outstanding agency that makes a difference.
