About Us

Careers Migration Australia is the trading name for Careers International Group Pty Ltd (ABN 76 124 081 992) a registered Australian company, based in Sydney, Australia and operating since 2007.

Our History

Our team has facilitated Australian Registration and employment for over 500 overseas Nurses whose family income is now an average of $90,000 per year in Australia.

These Registered Nurses have built a career with employers who have sponsored them and improved their skills

They have purchased their dream homes, educated their children in Australian schools and Universities and enjoy a lifestyle they never imagined possible in their home countries.

Their life has changed forever!

What do we do?

We provide migration advice, visa services and employment support to individuals and Australian employers.

What we believe in?

Helping overseas students and skilled workers to build their careers and change their lives by assisting them to study, work and live in Australia.

Why Australia

The Australian Economy leads the western world with low unemployment, high growth – and has not had a recession for 22 years.

Surveys by the OECD and United Nations have shown Australians are the wealthiest and happiest people in the world and live longer than most other populations.

The good news is that Australia needs people just like you…

Over the next 10 years 2 Million skilled workers and 5 million students will be coming to Australia, we want to help you become one of them.

How are we different?

Our success in applying for permanent residence has been 100%.

In Australia last year over 4000 visas were refused, mainly to people who decided to save money and not use a Registered Migration Agent.

78 % of Skilled visa applications submitted by individuals without the assistance of Registered Migration Agent are incomplete, and missing critical evidence, information and documents,

The key to our success has been our understanding of Australian migration law, and our ability to:

  • Understand your objectives, skills and circumstances.
  • Develop a cost effective strategy tailored for you
  • Become your personal representative and

Your advocate with Government authorities and institutions

Current Focus

We have been over the last 2 years focused on providing many of these same benefits to overseas applicants in all occupations, and also for those who want to travel to Australia to study and subsequently develop a career in Australia, or in their home country.

What we Care About

Our motto since we first started in 2007 has been; “Building Careers, Changing Lives.”
Building Careers
We are focused on providing visa and employment support services to skilled workers and students who wish to study and work in Australia temporarily or permanently, so they can build their career in their chosen occupation. In addition we continue to work with some of Australia’s leading employers to facilitate their sponsorship of skilled overseas workers for both temporary and permanent residence.
Changing Lives
By providing individuals with visas and employment support to work, study and live in Australia both temporarily and permanently, we can facilitate a change in their life by supporting them, their partners and family, in developing their career. This changes their life forever by providing career and income opportunities they could only previously dream of, and providing their family with educational and future employment opportunities in Australia.
Making it Happen
Over the last years our clients have been granted over 1,000 visas, both temporary and permanent, with 100% of the applicants successfully establishing careers and permanent residency in Australia in their respective occupations.
Job Search Support

          • What I have to say about career international. It is very good. First of all I want to tell that we can trust these people because I know many agents who brought people to Australia. After candidates came to Australia they just left them and they don’t care, because they are thinking their job is finished. But I am proud to say that Allan always give back up to us and still we have a stand.

          • I am so happy to have received the news that my Australian Visa application has been granted. I would like to say thank you for assisting me with my visa processing. If I did that application on my own, without your help, I don't think I would get a visa approval. You guys really did an amazing job, and I cannot thank you enough. I really appreciate all the effort you guys put in for my application.  Now I just need to book myself a return ticket. Once again, my most sincere thanks and appreciation for your kind assistance. I wish that you will continue to have more success in your business as you continue to help people.
