Standard Business Sponsorship

Standard Business Sponsorship (SBS) allows eligible Australian businesses to sponsor overseas citizens to work in highly skilled occupations. Once the SBS is approved it is valid for five years and allows the business to nominate overseas workers for a TSS visa (Subclass 482). If eligible your business can also obtain sponsorship accreditation.
