At CountrywideVisas, we focus on streamlining the visa application process for those interested in immigrating to Australia. The employer-sponsored visa is a widely sought-after option for both permanent and temporary residency. These visas are supported by Australian employers looking to hire skilled professionals. Individuals choosing this immigration category are required to provide a work order or employment notification, a sponsorship declaration from their employer, and pertinent documents showcasing their professional qualifications.
In Australia, employer-sponsored visas are available on both a temporary and permanent basis. The temporary visa is valid for up to four years, while the permanent visa extends beyond that timeframe. In many cases, obtaining a temporary visa serves as a pathway to securing a permanent visa.
Temporary Visa Options
Within the category of temporary visas, the Business Long Stay Visa, also known as subclass 457, stands out as particularly popular. This visa type allows employers to nominate multiple candidates for various positions under a single application. Specifically designed for skilled workers and professionals, these sponsored visas offer flexibility for businesses seeking skilled personnel.
Employers looking to recruit a group of skilled individuals can explore the option of ‘Labour Agreements.’ These agreements empower Australian employers to bring in skilled overseas manpower to support their business or manufacturing activities. Another temporary visa category is ‘Service Sellers,’ which facilitates the entry of overseas suppliers of goods or services into trade agreements with Australian companies, aligning with the terms of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS).
Permanent Residency Visa
A permanent residency visa grants immigrants the privilege of establishing permanent residence in Australia. The Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) enables employers to sponsor skilled overseas professionals for a duration extending beyond four years. Individuals traveling to Australia on an ENS Visa, specifically the Subclass 186 visa, are entitled to reside and work permanently in the country. Similarly, the Regional Sponsored Migration (RSM) scheme, represented by the Subclass 187 visa, allows employers in regional or sparsely populated Australian areas to recruit skilled professionals from foreign nations. Through the ENS or RSMS, immigrants initially residing on a temporary visa can transition to permanent residency.
At Aussizz, we meticulously evaluate individual cases, considering all angles and assessing their merits. Our comprehensive approach involves careful documentation and application procedures.
