If you have found an employer in Australia who is ready to sponsor you for work, that is a great step forward. It’s also the first of many; you also need to find the right visa. Let’s take a look at the various options you have.
Different types of Employer Sponsored Visas
There are numerous visas you can choose upon finding Australian jobs with visa sponsorship; it is, therefore, important to find the right visa that will suit your specific needs. (name of company) helps clients with the following employer sponsorship visa subclasses:
Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457 visa)
This visa allows you to travel to Australia and work for an approved business sponsor in a nominated occupation. The sponsorship is valid for four years. Once you have lived in the country and worked for the same sponsor for two years, you qualify to be nominated for a permanent residency visa through a pathway known as the ‘temporary resident transition stream’.
To receive sponsorship on this permanent residency visa, your employer must be based in a designated regional area. You may be a highly skilled worker from overseas or a highly skilled temporary resident currently in Australia. You may not need a skill assessment to qualify for this visa, and the obligations your employer has are not as strict the 186 visa.
Irrespective of whether you qualify for skilled work via the temporary resident transition or the direct entry option, this employer-nominated visa grants both you and your permanent family residency. Our Australia visa agents can advise you on the most suitable pathway to take for your Australia PR visa.
The 407 visa allows you to work for an Australian employer as you undertake on-the-job training and is granted for a fixed period, anywhere between six months and two years. Under this visa, you are allowed to work for your sponsor only and must work at least 30 hours per week and get paid the award rate- at the minimum.
