Employer Sponsored Working Visas
For people looking to live and work in Australia, there are several forms of working visas available, each with their own set of conditions and restrictions.
Some of these visas can be a pathway for acquiring permanent residence status in Australia, through either the Employment Nomination Scheme (ENS) or the Regional Skilled Migration Scheme (RSMS).
The Temporary Work Visa (Subclass 457) has been replaced by the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Visa (Subclass 482) on 18 March 2018.
This allows Australian employers to sponsor employees who are foreign nationals for a permanent visa to work in Australia (Direct Entry Stream) or (Transitional Stream).
This visa allows employers in regional or low population growth areas of Australia, to sponsor employees who are foreign nationals for a permanent visa to work in Australia.
Applicants wishing to work in Australia but do not have employee sponsorship can consider the option of General Skilled Migration (GSM) Visas.
