Australia Employer Sponsored Visas

Employer sponsored visas allow businesses in Australia and overseas to sponsor skilled workers who have recognised qualifications and skills in particular occupations required in Australia.

Eligible employers who wish to sponsor a skilled overseas worker for a temporary or permanent visa (with the exception of Labour Agreements) must have the occupation listed on the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL).  Where an occupation is not listed on the CSOL, eligible employers may wish to consider a Labour Agreement

Unlike General Skilled Migration visas, skilled migrants applying for employer sponsored visas are not points tested. All prospective employees must however meet the skill and requirements of the relevant employer sponsored visa program to be eligible to apply for a visa.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection administers all sponsorship applications for employers and visa applications for employees.

Visa programs

There are various employer sponsored visa programs to suit recruitment needs. Detailed information about each visa, including costs, entitlements, responsibilities, eligibility requirements and obligations are listed on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.

Temporary Work (Skilled) Subclass 457: Australian or overseas employers located anywhere in Australia.

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme: Australian employers located in regional or remote Australia (outside of capital cities).
