Australia Skilled Workers wishing to migrate to Australia face two main options - full Skilled Worker Visa and Skilled Independent Regional Visa. As its name suggests, Regional Visa allows you to work in a specific region of Australia and is designed to encourage development of these areas specifically. The full Skilled Worker Visa allows you to work anywhere in Australia but requires you to gain a higher level of points. Again, these visas are more complex than UK version.
New Zealand New Zealand is working hard to encourage skilled migrants to move there and have lowered pass mark from 195 points in 2004 to its current level of 100 points. As with Canada, having a close relative in New Zealand will gain you extra points and previous work experience gained in New Zealand can also gain you extra points.
For individuals with good education and/or experience, there is a strong initiative in these countries to try and encourage you to bring your skills and experience to their economies, representing increasing options available for individuals to experience different cultures and career opportunities.
