The Australia Construction Visa Subsidy Program helps Western Australia’s construction businesses fill the demand for a skilled workforce. This is a New initiative by the Western Australian government to address the labor shortage in the construction industry. For this, they are giving a Support of $10,000 for workers to cover the Visa Fee, Agent Fees, and Travel (Relocation) cost to Australia.
