Is there a permanent residency pathway for highly skilled senior managers in the hospitality industry?

Yes, there are permanent residency pathways available for highly skilled senior managers in the hospitality industry in Australia, depending on various factors including individual circumstances, immigration policies, and visa regulations. As visa regulations and immigration policies are often subject to change, it is advised that you consult a qualified migration agent of the Department of Home affairs to receive proper guidance on these matters. One common pathway for skilled workers in Australia is through the General Skilled Migration (GSM) program, which includes visas such as the Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) and the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190). To be eligible for these visas, senior managers in the hospitality industry must meet the relevant eligibility criteria, including having their occupation listed on the relevant skilled occupation list, meeting the points threshold, and demonstrating competent English language proficiency. Additionally, senior managers in the hospitality industry may be eligible for employer-sponsored visas such as the Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186) or the Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) visa. These visas require sponsorship from an Australian employer and may lead to permanent residency after a certain period of employment
