Visa - Gold Coast - Employer Sponsorship, finding work in Australia.

Employer Sponsorship, finding work in Australia.

Businesses in Australia have the option to employ foreign nationals to meet labour shortages under

a subclass 457 visa.  This visa enables skilled overseas workers to find work in Australia.

Businesses who want to employ skilled workers from overseas must first obtain Standard Business Sponsorship (SBS) with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

In these instances, it is recommended to have a skilled immigration practitioner from Ready Migration assist with the SBS process as it can be very complex and time consuming if not handled correctly.

Businesses applying for SBS will then nominate a role that needs to be filled from the defined list of skilled occupations which meet minimum criteria’s in salary and level of skill.

Along with evidence to prove the nomination is genuine, to be eligible for SBS the business must among other things prove that they are:

  • A legally registered business
  • A lawfully operating business
  • Are meeting training benchmarks

Once the Department of Immigration and Border Protection approve the business as a Standard Business Sponsor they’re eligible to nominate positions.

A worker holding a subclass 457 visa, will enable the worker to:

  • Work in Australia for a period of between one day and four years with a SBS employer
  • Bring eligible dependents to Australia (those dependents can work and study in Australia)
  • Apply for Residency after 2 years work in Australia
  • Travel in and out of Australia with no limit
