If you have skills in an occupation listed on WA's skilled occupation list, you may be able to qualify for a Skilled Sponsored or Skilled Regional Sponsored migration visa to live and work in WA. These Australian visas are processed quite quickly. State sponsored visa applications have higher priority for processing by Australia's Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) than independent skilled immigration visas.
You will also need to show that you meet the English language requirements and have a skills assessment from the relevant skills assessment body in Australia.
