Employer sponsored visas are available in Australia, providing for both temporary and permanent visas. If you are employed or offered a skilled position with an Australian business, you may be eligible to obtain a visa through that employment relationship.
Employer sponsored migration is a complex area of law and policy. The main difficulties that arise in this area are:
- What occupation is the business putting forward? And does it match the individual’s skills and qualifications background?
- Do you need a skills assessment in your chosen occupation, and if so are you eligible?
- Is the business in a sound position to be able to offer the position at the nominated salary?
- How long does the process take? And what if the business undergoes a change while awaiting the (in some cases) lengthy processing of the visa application?
- Issues of exploitation by some unscrupulous employers who use the power imbalance to their advantage.
- How to move from one employer to another on a temporary work visa without running into difficulty.
- Very high levels of scrutiny being applied to genuineness of positions sometimes leads to genuine cases being rejected, and associated appeals processes.
