Hi, I Have a student visa and came to Australia with my boyfriend, which just came to accompany me, with an e visitor visa (we are both from Portugal). It happens that he is an IT developer and found a job in his area here in Australia. For the moment he is just doing the initial training and formation, but he will need a work visa as soon as possible. So my question is, which visa should he apply for? Thank you. Francisca

There is a range of general skilled and employer sponsored visas. Which one will be most suitable for him, will depend on his overall qualification, English language skills, work experience and many other factors.

Before he can apply he probably will need to do a skills assessment and an English language test.

Processing of the visa application can take from a few months up to a year and he won't be able to work at all as long is he is on a visitor visa.

He should be very careful that he is currently not in breach of his tourist visa conditions while doing his 'formation/training".
