My friend is currently on his second year of the working holiday visa. He has been working in construction for the last year in austrailia and has 6 years experience in welding/mining/fabrication back home in the UK. Looking for a few options on visas that will allow him to stay in austraila after his Working holiday visa expires. Cheers

He needs to check the CSOL and SOL lists to see if he has an occupation on there and then check he can pass the skills assessment for that occupation

Hi striiing,

as Verystormy suggested you should check out the skilled occupation lists. TRA is responsible for assessing the skills of welders and mining professionals. Depending on what occupation you apply in, you may need one of those, even if you have a company willing to sponsor you towards a 457 (temporary work) visa.

Have you considered getting a formal qualification via TAFE in Australia? As a welder you'd need an AQF Certificate III (+ 2 years on-the-job training), or AQF Certificate IV. You may be able to obtain one faster due to your prior work experience. This is called "Recognition of Prior Learning" (RPL). For Queensland you can find information on the SkillsTech page. Google it for other states.
