Australia is the smallest continent yet the largest island on the face of this planet. It has its individuality in many ways. Its beautiful costal lines and breathtaking landscapes are famous all over the world. If we talk about its states then Australia is divided into six states of Australia.
The list of their names are as following:
- Western Australia
- South Australia
- New South Wales
All these states have their individuality in various contexts for example like population density, land, economics, education, etc. as all these states are different from each other and have their resources so the industries which contribute to the economics of these sates are also different. This is why every state of Australia needs manpower belonging to different occupations according to their own needs. To meet the needs of skilled individuals every state publishes a list of occupation that shows the need for talent in those occupations. People from all around the globe can apply for different visas like skilled independent visa 189, subclass 190 and subclass 491 regional visa, etc. if they belong to the relevant occupational list.
