An Employer Sponsored Visa can be a fantastic way to get both work and a visa in Australia in one go.
Within Australia, there are a number of industries experiencing severe skills shortages and businesses simply can’t fill vacancies from the local talent pool.
This is fantastic news for overseas workers in these industries who are looking to migrate to Australia! There are various options for both temporary and permanent residency under this stream and special visas designed to attract workers to regional areas.
With Employee Sponsored Visas, a reputable company can sponsor a foreign worker to come to work for them in Australia and fill that void. This is another route to becoming an Australian resident that may be suitable for some people, particularly those working in the:
- mining and
- construction industries.
In 2012, the Employer Sponsored Visa had a major facelift, meaning that many of the old rules are now completely different. It’s a tough process for both the employee and the business. That’s why we really recommend calling in the experts (hey, that’s us!) to help with all aspects of the process, including:
- Standard Business Sponsorship Applications
- Skills Assessments
- Nominations and Sponsored Visa Applications
