Sponsoring workers from overseas in Australia - work visa solutions

There are various different ways for businesses to employ and bring overseas workers to Australia.

These include the:

  • subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) visa;
  • subclass 482 (Temporary Skill Shortage visa), TSS visa
  • subclass 186 Employer Nomination Scheme visa; and
  • subclass 187 Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa.


Sponsoring your workers on a business sponsorship

Take a look at more detailed information about how to sponsor employees:

  1. Short term: Businesses can bring skilled workers to Australia for short term projects by using the subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) visa. This is a good short term option (usually granted for up to 3 months but it is possible to obtain a grant for up to 6) for specialised work. The processing time is relatively fast and costs are much cheaper than other options.
  1. Medium – long term: Skilled workers can be brought to Australia for medium to long term projects by using the 482 visa (TSS visa). This is a good medium term option (the 482 visa can be granted for up to 4 years depending on the occupation that is being nominated). The nominated occupation needs to be on the Short Term Skilled Occupation List or the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skills List. A minimum salary of $53,900 per annum applies.  In addition the worker needs to be paid market salary rate (i.e. no undercutting of the local labour market).  The 482 visa is also a pathway to permanent residency for the worker.
  1. Permanent: Skilled workers can be provided with permanent residency using the subclass 186 Employer Nomination Scheme visa, even if they have never worked in Australia before (Direct Entry Stream). These are permanent residency visas.  There is no requirement for the worker to have previously worked in Australia.  The requirements are on the whole quite similar to the 482 visa.  However, because this is a permanent visa, a formal skills assessment is often required.

We regularly assist many overseas and domestic businesses to bring skilled workers to Australia, many of whom in fact opt to use all three of the above options.  Please contact us for further information.
