The Employer Nomination Scheme with Visa Subclass 186 allows Australian businesses to sponsor people to work in Australia on a permanent visa, provided that it is for a position listed on the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL).
What’s the process?
To sponsor a person for an Employer Nomination Scheme Visa Subclass 186, your business will need to ‘nominate’ your overseas employee. As part of your nomination application, you must prove that:
There are two streams in which you can nominate an overseas employee – either via the Temporary Residence Transition Stream or the Direct Entry Stream.
If the person you wish to sponsor already lives in Australia temporarily on a 457 work visa employed in your business, you can nominate them for a 186 permanent visa under the Transition Stream.
Direct Entry Stream
Your business can nominate a person for a 186 visa under the Direct Entry stream if the person has never worked in Australia, has not held a 457 visa for the last two years with a nominating employer, or if they are applying from outside of Australia.
