How to Get Employer Sponsored Visas to Work in Australia

  • Sharebar

In the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis, many people have been travelling abroad to seek better job opportunities. Australia is one such popular destination and has proved to be a place where you can find employment. With the Employer Sponsored Visa, you may be able to find a well-paying job here and start building your career.

What is the Employer Sponsored Visa?

Work in Australia

This Visa involves a combined effort from both the sponsoring Australian employer and the overseas applicant to show that there is a skilled position within the business that they wish to fill with an overseas worker. The Visa will be granted on the premise that the employer has agreed to offer the worker employment within their business.

To qualify for this visa, there are also other specific requirements depending on your situation.

For the 457 visa, there are three stages – namely the employer sponsorship, position nomination, and visa application.

For stage one, the employer must prove that a) they are lawfully and actively operating a business, b) they have a sound business record and abide by immigration laws, and c) they are committed to training their Australian citizen and permanent resident staff members.

For stage two, the employer must a) be an approved employer sponsor, b) state the skills and experience required to perform the position on offer, c) prove that the salary on offer is commensurate with the market salary rate, and d) prove that the position that is on offer appears on the government list of approved occupations.

As for stage 3, the employer must evidence an approved nominated position (stage 2) and an approved and current business sponsorship (step 1).

The employee must also demonstrate they have the skills required for the position.

The ENS visa also has its own set of requirements which are divided into two stages. The first stage is similar to stages 1 and 2 of the 457 visa. The second stage requires the employee to have the necessary skills for the position.

The RSMS visa involves two stages. Stage one requires the employer to show that a) the company operates actively and lawfully in Australia, b) it has a sound business record which includes abiding by immigration laws, c) it has a genuine need for the nominated full-time position for at least 2 years, d) the salary on offer is above the market salary rate, e) it will continue to train its staff (only required for the transitional residence stream), and f) it has an assessment from local Regional Certifying Body.

The employee must be aged under 50, have the required skills and qualifications, satisfy the English language requirement, and have worked for at least two years in the nominated position before the application is lodged (transitional residence stream only).

Some exemptions are also available.

Given that the requirements for applying for an Employer sponsored visa are complex and confusing, you can seek the aid of a registered migration agent to act on your behalf. This can be done by engaging National Visas to guide you through the whole process.
