At AHWC Immigration Law, our mission is to provide your business with the highest quality advice and assistance. We specialise in delivering Australian immigration solutions that are tailored to your company’s needs, allowing you to utilise skilled global talent to fill gaps in your local workforce.

 

Which Industries Do We Serve?

Our team has experience with assisting a diverse portfolio of companies with their Australian visa requirements. This ranges from coordinating the immigration programs for large multi-national corporations to one-off work visa solutions for smaller companies who don’t usually utilise the Australian visa program.

We can provide bespoke visa solutions that take into account your industry and business.

 

The industries we most commonly work with include:

CONSTRUCTIONTECHNOLOGYHEALTHMININGRETAILHOSPITALITYENGINEERINGENTERTAINMENT + SPORTFRANCHISES
We represent clients in civil, commercial and residential construction, assisting them with sourcing and retaining essential skilled staff for their business. We understand that companies in the construction industry often require staff at short notice to ensure that they can complete infrastructure and projects in accordance with their contractual obligations. Construction companies often require expatriate staff with skills that are not available in the Australian labour market and we provide advice and assistance on market trends and solutions, such as labour agreements.
We assist Information, Communication and Technology clients with their Australian immigration programs and obtaining visas to allow these companies to fill skill shortages in Cyber Security, Analyst Programming, ICT Business and System Analysts. We provide advice and thought leadership relating to talent management for this sector, providing companies with a competitive advantage when attracting and retaining employees by utilising Global Talent schemes.
We have assisted private health services with Australian visa applications for medical staff, nurses, pharmacists and physiotherapy. We understand the complexities in sponsoring medical and health practitioners and can guide organisations through the application process and registration requirements for these occupations.
Our team has experience with supplying Australian immigration services to national and global mining operations, providing advice on suitable visa options for their expatriate employees and training workshops for HR staff and other key stakeholders. We have experience in utilising Designated Area Migration Agreements and regional visa options to the benefit of Mining companies.
Our team has significant expertise in partnering with some of Australia’s largest brands to oversee their visa programs and provide tailored visa solutions. This includes negotiating Global Talent Employer Sponsoring agreement with the Department of Home Affairs, to allow these companies to attract talent by guaranteeing a pathway to permanent residency for positions that would otherwise only be eligible for temporary visas, such as Fashion Designer and Sales and Marketing Managers.
We assist hotels, restaurants and fast food outlets with their Australian visa applications for Chefs, Cooks and Restaurant Managers. This includes assessing whether utilising the current restaurant industry labour agreement would be beneficial to their business.
We have clients across all areas of engineering including civil, mechanical, electrical and chemical. We provide assistance in obtaining employer sponsored temporary and permanent visas when suitable labour options are not available locally.
We assist sport players, coaches, performers and production staff with Temporary Activity Subclass 408 visa applications through the Sporting and Entertainment streams. This is a cost effective visa option for expatriate individuals who wish to work in these industries.

I used AHWC for my sponsorship visa, and most recently my permanent residency visa for myself and my partner. Alice in the Melbourne branch has been fantastic from start to finish, it is a very nerve wracking process given what is at stake and I couldn’t recommend them or Alice more. Alice was very transparent, professional and approachable from day1 and throughout the entire process. Our PR visa was granted really fast, which was amazing but before this we were at ease with the usual long haul processing time wait given our confidence in Alice’s capabilities. Alice was very responsive throughout the whole process, and explained things in layman’s terms. She was very thorough and I am someone who likes to ensure every detail is perfect, but when I missed something she was quick and clear to advise me on what else was needed for the application itself. All in all thank you to Alice and the AHWC team for the hard work and ensuring our time in Australia can now be indefinite!Rochelle Pickard
