Australian Government Recruitment for Construction Workers (Free Visa + $10k)

The Australian Government is pleased to introduce a recruitment initiative aimed at alleviating the labor shortage in its construction sector. This initiative, known as the Construction Visa Subsidy Program (CVSP), is available to construction workers who are willing to relocate to Australia.

Through the CVSP, applicants can access complimentary visa support services and financial incentives of up to $10,000 Australian dollars. These incentives are intended to facilitate the relocation of construction workers to Australia, where they can fill essential roles in the construction industry.

Key Information about the Construction Visa Subsidy Program:

The CVSP, initiated by the Australian Government, aims to assist Western Australian construction businesses in addressing their skilled workforce requirements. This program provides financial support of up to $10,000 to facilitate skilled migration visa pathways for workers and help cover expenses such as migration agent fees, visa application fees, and relocation costs.

The program offers two distinct pathways: one for WA employers (CVSP Employer Sponsored Stream) and another for independent skilled migrants (CVSP State Nominated Stream).

Eligibility Criteria for Australian Government Recruitment for Construction Workers:

  • Applicants must be sponsored by a CVSP employer as a skilled migrant under visa subclasses 482, 494, or 186.
  • The sponsoring CVSP employer must be headquartered and engaged in building and construction work in Western Australia.
  • Applicants must be granted a visa through the WA State Nominated Migration Program (SNMP) under visa subclasses 190 or 491.
