I Want an Employer Sponsorship Visa

Please choose one of the following to help us learn a little bit more about you:

TEMPORARY SKILLED SHORTAGE (TSS)
Subclass 482

From March 2018, the subclass 457 visa will be abolished and replaced with the Temporary Skilled Shortage Visa, or TSS, subclass 482.

The TSS visa will be comprised of a Short-Term stream of up to two years (unless international trade obligations apply), and a Medium-Term stream of up to four years.

The Short-term stream is designed for Australian businesses to fill skill gaps with foreign workers on a temporary basis, where a suitably skilled Australian worker cannot be sourced.

The Medium-term stream will allow employers to source foreign workers to address shortages in a narrower range of highly skilled and high-value need occupations, where a suitably skilled Australian worker cannot be sourced.

Employer Nominated Scheme (ENS)
Subclass 186

The permanent employer sponsored visa program allows overseas employees to apply for Australian permanent residence. It has three separate programs for different situations: Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS), the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) and the Labour Agreements program.

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS)
Subclass 187

The permanent employer sponsored visa program allows overseas employees to apply for Australian permanent residence. It has three separate programs for different situations: Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS), the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) and the Labour Agreements program.

Frequently asked questions

Immigrations regulations and policy are constantly changing. Read here what is trending now and what our clients are asking us.

I’ve read there have been changes to the 457 visa program. What’s changed?

On 18 April 2017, the government announced the 457 visa will be abolished and replaced with the completely new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa which will come into effect in March 2018.

The new TSS visa programme has two streams of occupations – short-term (STSOL) and long-term (MLTSSL) Only occupations on the MLTSSL list can apply for PR after 3 years. There are a bunch of other changes. Please visit Employer Sponsorship Visas to find out more.

What are the Transitional Arrangements if I held a 457 visa or applied for a 457 visa prior to 18th April 2017

If you held, or had applied for, a Subclass 457 visa as at April 18, 2017 then you can still meet transitional arrangements.

Temporary Residence Transition requirements which apply

  • Occupation list requirements will not apply
  • The age requirement will remain at less than 50 years of age with existing age exemptions still available, and
  • The minimum period an applicant is required to have been employed in their nominated occupation as the holder of a subclass 457 or TSS visa will remain at two years.

New requirements apply (e.g. new age requirements and three -year transitional period on a temporary visa).

Resident Return Visas – What are my Options?

Living in Australia for at least two years (can be accumulative) in the last 5 years prior to lodging your visa you will automatically be granted a new 5 -year Permanent Residence Visa.

If you have spent less than 2 years in Australia, then you may be eligible for a one-year RRV. You would need to present ties you have to Australia such as employment, investment, family or business ties.

Speak to us how best to present your RRV application and what to do in the lag time between lodgement and assessment.
