Are you an engineer with a specialty in one of the following occupations? As your job is on the Skilled Occupations List (SOL), you could be eligible to get a visa for Australia, without needing a job offer or an employer to sponsor you.

As reported by Business Insider Australia, the country has seen sustained demand for specialist skilled trades and engineers in the last decade and it is unlikely to change in the near future.

According to the University of NSW, Australia’s demand for engineers far exceeds its supply of graduates. The country imports more than double the number of Engineers who graduate from Australian universities each year, and has done so for more than a decade.

A quick search through Australia's first job search website, seek.com.au, shows hundreds of vacancies for qualified engineers.

Engineering jobs on the SOL list

Civil Engineer Electronics Engineer Biomedical Engineer
Geotechnical Engineer Industrial Engineer Engineering Technologist
