Employer Visa

 Employer Visa 

There are 4 categories for employer sponsored migration to Australia:

♦ Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS)
♦ Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS)
♦ Labour Agreements (LA)
♦ Invest Australia Supported Skills (IASS)The first 3 categories enable Australian employers to recruit highly skilled workers, either from overseas or from people temporarily in Australia, where an employer has been unable to fill their recruitment needs from the Australian labour market or through their own training efforts.The IASS enables employers (who have an approved IASS agreement) to transfer ‘key’ managerial and specialist employees of their company to Australia.

Nomination

Employers who are considering nominating persons under the ENS, RSMS or LA may locate suitable nominees in various ways, including:

♦ through their efforts in testing the Australian labour market;
♦ personal contact and/or experience with the nominee;
♦ recommendation from third parties; or
♦ through the Skill Matching Database.

All prospective applicants must first be nominated by their direct employer in Australia. If the nomination is approved, the employer will advise the nominee and provide them with a copy of the nomination approval letter from the department.

The nomination should be lodged before or at the same time as the visa application. At the latest, the visa application must be lodged within 6 months of the approval of the nomination.

The same nomination must be approved before the visa application can be approved.
