Sponsorship Visa Australia
Under Australia’s immigration law, the employer sponsored visa scheme is to address skill shortages in Australia’s labor market. The legal obligations must be discharged by both the sponsoring employer and the employee being sponsored for the employer sponsored visas to be granted and maintained.
Few work visas in Australia may only be available to skilled workers employed in regional areas, whilst many skill shortage visa options allow them to work in for the positions in major cities, such as metropolitan Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. It is therefore vital to discuss with an accredited migration agent for the optimal way to secure your work visa in Australia.
In Australia’s employer sponsored visa scheme, the prospective foreign skilled workers may consider:
- Subclass 482: Temporary Skill Shortage – Temporary Residency
- Subclass 186: Employer Nominated Scheme – Permanent Residency
- Subclass 494: Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional – Temporary Residency
- Subclass 400: Temporary Work – Temporary Residency
- Subclass 407: Training – Temporary Residency
- Subclass 408: Temporary Activity – Temporary Residency
482 – Temporary Skill Shortage
186 – Employer Nominated Scheme
494 – Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional
400 – Temporary Work
This is a temporary visa allowing foreign workers with specialized skills and/ or ability to advance Australia’s interest to undertake one-off employment for up to 6 months. A majority of applications are under the “highly specialized work” stream, where it must be proven that the applicant possess highly specialized skills, attributes, expertise or proprietary knowledge.
407 – Training
408 – Temporary Activity
An employer in Australia must first be approved by the Department of Home Affairs as a sponsor of the appropriate sort in order to nominate a skilled worker for a relevant visa.
- Standard Business Sponsor
- Temporary Activities Sponsor
Precise prerequisites depend on the category, but both sponsors require the employer to show lawful business operation in Australia. Start-ups may qualify subject to additional criteria. Those looking to sponsor employees under the regional sponsored migration scheme must demonstrate that the place of employment is located in regionally.
Costs to Employers
Employer visas exist to remedy deficiencies within the Australian labor market whilst preserving the wage levels. Visa holders must be engaged on terms analogous to those that would be offered to an Australian citizen with the equivalent skills.
Employers must cover the costs of sponsorship and nomination approval. Attempting to pass these charges onto the employee will likely result in refusal of the visa and prevent the employer from sponsoring foreign workers in the future. Paying to arrange sponsorship and nomination is direct contravention of Australian migration laws.
