Types of Employer-Sponsored Visa


Visa Options

Employer sponsored visa in Australia is issued on both temporary and permanent bases, the former with validity of up to four years and the latter beyond that period. In fact temporary visa is often an avenue for securing a permanent visa.

Temporary Visa

The most sought-after type of temporary visa is subclass 457, sometimes known as the Business Long Stay Visa. Employers may nominate many individuals for various positions under a single application. Professionals and skilled workers are the only ones eligible for these sponsored visas.

An employer for recruiting a group of skilful personnel might apply for ‘Labour Agreements’. These agreements allow Australian employers to hire skilled overseas manpower for their business or manufacturing activity. ‘Service Sellers’ is another class of temporary visa that enables overseas suppliers of goods or services to enter into trade agreements with Australian companies as per terms of GATS (General Agreement of Trade and Services).

Permanent Visa

An immigrant with a permanent visa is allowed to settle in Australialive and work in Australia. Employers may choose to sponsor qualified foreign workers for terms longer than four years through the Employer Nomination Scheme. Those who travel to Australia with an ENS visa, also known as a Subclass 186 visa, are permitted to remain and work there permanently. Employers in remote or regional areas of Australia may hire foreign skilled workers with an RSM (Regional Sponsored Migration) scheme visa, often known as Subclass 187. An immigrant in this nation on a temporary visa may become a permanent resident under ENS or RSMS.

We at Aussizz assess individual cases carefully and with sufficient deliberation. We examine each case from all perspectives and determine its merit. Accordingly we begin our documentation and application procedure. Our professionals being thorough and knowledgeable about Australian immigration laws are experts in giving proper advice to applicants. For candidates proceeding to Australia on employer sponsored visa, sponsorship is mandatory, be it from a private employer or a state/ territorial government authority.

Due to the country’s current economic climate as well as modifications to the labour market, there are significantly more Australian firms hiring professionals and workers from outside. Over the past few years, skilled immigrants have been coming to this country steadily. We at Aussizz are proud to have played a proactive role in this immigration process.
