Employer Sponsored Visas sub class 186

Do you have skills and qualifications needed by an Australian company?  Are they willing to sponsor your stay in Australia?

The Employer Nomination Scheme (186) is a two- part process that leads to the granting of this visa.  Firstly, company needs to obtain Standard Business Sponsorship (SBS) which means it needs to become an approved employer showing it is an established business and that it has a need to employ a worker from overseas plus be committed to meeting the training benchmarks.

The applicant must have the required skills, qualifications and experience for the nominated occupation plus the required level of English and usually be under 50 years of age. As a worker there are three possible streams to choose for application.

  • Temporary Resident Transition stream – for those that have held a 457 visa and have worked for the sponsoring employer for at least 2 years
  • Direct Entry – for those that have not worked for the sponsoring employer for at least 2 years and therefore untested in the Australian labour market; and
  • Agreement stream – for those that are sponsored through a labour or regional agreement

There are different requirements that need to be met for each stage.
