visa type and employer sponsorship

Hi,

I have 4 years BS degree with majors in Computer Science. I am a software engineer by profession and have 5 years of experience in software development. I am planning to go for IELTS in few days time.

I want to come to Australia for work. Later on, I wish to bring my family with me as well.

I have gone through the immigration website as well but want to have some valuable input from experience personnel. I have the following questions:

1. Can any one guide, which type of visa will be best?
2. If I need a sponsorship certificate from an employer, how can I get one? Is this something convenient and feasible?

Thanks in advance,
Best Regards.

You mention sponsorship from an employer and that is one of the two streams for skilled immigration and the highest priority so for some people it can be a good approach.

Of course you have to seek employment with an employer prepared to sponsor you and the first part of that is really no different to applying for employment anywhere and success will depend on the factors of employer needs as well as availability of suitable applicants be they in Australia or not.
The IT profession does seem to be very popular if the numbers of posters on this forum alone is anything to go by and I have read of people not finding work readily.

Irrespective of whether you elect to try and take the employer sponsor route or not, it would make sense to investigate the employment market and perhaps your existing experience will aid you in that.

The top two headings on Workers - Visas & Immigration are links to employer sponsorship and the independent route, both menu driven and self explanatory.
You'll see on the independent pages a What's New Link and you should have a good read there of the Ministers annoucements 08February for regulation changes implementation is scheduled to occur within several months.
There has also been a suspension of offshore skilled visas, the 175/176 and 475 so applicants for those have to wait and that will then enable them to consider the new regulations.

For the independent approach and also possibly for the Employer Sponsored visa you need to have your qualifications assessed for a nominated occupation.
A-Z Occupations List - Australian Skills Recognition Information

Regardless of which process you look at, you will see under eligibility clauses for the different visas that family members can be included as secondary applicants.
They would not need to move at the same time as you but within a period that would be dependent on when medical examinations expired after 12 months from date of examination.
If that is too soon and you thought of wanting them to come at a later time, your wife could apply for a separate partners visa and children included as secondary dependants on her visa.
More expense that way.
