Get Sponsored by an Employer

If you are seeking to sponsor foreign workers, or a candidate seeking to apply for a visa via a potential sponsor, there are a number of options available to you.

Employer sponsored or employer nominated visas may be appropriate where an Australian entity wishes to hire certain skilled foreign individuals, or where an overseas company wishes to send employees to work for their business/an associated business in Australia. These visas can be temporary, for example:

  • Subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) visa the most common and versatile temporary visa.
  • Subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay) visa.
  • Subclass 420 Temporary Work (Entertainment)visa for film and entertainment crew.
  • Subclass 401 Temporary Work (Long-Stay Activity) visa for religious workers and people participating in sporting events.
  • Subclass 402 Training and Research visa for trainee workers and academic research staff.
  • Subclass 416 Special Program visa for seasonal workers.

Employers may also sponsor candidates for permanent visas, for example:

  • Subclass 186 Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visa
  • Subclass 187 Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) visa

The employer must apply to the Department of Immigration to sponsor an individual in an approved position within the organisation, and the visa applicant must meet relevant requirements to enter/remain and work in Australia.
