Employer Sponsored Visas

Employer Sponsored Visas enable skilled workers to work for the employer that sponsors them.

Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) (Subclass 186 visa)

Employer Sponsored Visas are opted for when an employer is unable to find an Australian permanent resident or citizen with the required skills and experience for a job they can sponsor an overseas worker on a temporary or permanent basis.

Additionally, there is a range of temporary activity visas that enable employers to hire people of activities such as sports training programs, seasonal work, etc.

What are the main requirements to sponsor a worker?

  • The employer needs to demonstrate that it is unable to find a suitable person in Australia to fill the role through labour market testing.
  • For most employer sponsored visas the occupation must be listed on the relevant Skilled Occupations List. An employer may be able to negotiate a Labour Agreement for certain occupations that are not on the Skilled Occupations List. For highly skilled roles that are not listed on the Skilled Occupations List employers may be able to sponsor workers through the Global Talent Scheme.
  • The employer must meet certain eligibility criteria to apply for sponsorship.
  • The employer must nominate the worker for a particular position.
  • The employee must have the skills, qualifications, and experience for the nominated occupation.
  • The visa application has to be lodged.
