Types of Employer-Sponsored Visa Stream


Visa Options

In Australia, visas sponsored by employers are granted on a temporary or permanent basis; the former have a four-year validity limit, while the latter have an indefinite one. Actually, obtaining a temporary visa can sometimes lead to obtaining a permanent one.

Temporary Visas

Among the temporary variety, subclass 457 or Business Long Stay Visa is the most sought after. Employers under a same application are able to nominate several candidates for different posts. These sponsored visas are specifically meant for skilled workers and professionals.

An employer may apply for “Labour Agreements” in order to hire a group of skilled workers. These agreements give Australian companies the ability to hire competent workers from abroad for their operations or manufacturing projects. Another type of temporary visa known as “Service Sellers” permits foreign providers of goods or services to engage in commercial agreements with Australian businesses in accordance with the provisions of the General Agreement of Trade and Services, or GATS.

Permanent Visa

A permanent visa entitles an immigrant to settle in Australia lastingly. Employer Nomination Scheme allows employers to sponsor skilled overseas professionals for a period beyond four years. Migrants travelling to Australia on an ENS Visa, or Subclass 186 visa is eligible to stay and work in Australia on a permanent basis. A RSM (Regional Sponsored Migration) scheme visa or Subclass 187 allows regional employers or employers in sparsely populated Australian locations to hire skilled professionals from foreign countries. Under ENS or RSMS an immigrant residing on a temporary visa could become a permanent settler in this country.
