Employer Nomination 186 Visas

Get sponsored by an Australian Employer

The Employer Nomination Scheme (186) gives you (and any family members) permanent residency. There are two Employer Nomination Scheme (186) streams.

TEMPORARY RESIDENT TRANSITION If you currently hold a 457 visa, and have done so for at least two years (with the same 457 sponsor), you are eligible for the Temporary Resident Transition stream on the Employer Nomination Scheme (186).

DIRECT ENTRY If you can pass the skill assessment and have three years post-qualification work experience in your nominated occupation, you are eligible for the Direct Entry stream on the Employer Nomination Scheme (186).

Skill Assessment

We can manage the skill assessment process with you. We will help you with what documentation and criteria is required, review and lodge your paperwork with the appropriate assessment body.

Eligibility to be Sponsored

You must meet the requirements around age, English skills and skill (work experience and/or qualifications) in an occupation on the Consolidated Skilled Occupation List (CSOL). The job must be at the correct salary level, full time and be offered for at least two years. Aussie Migration Services can help both you and your employer through the steps. To find out if you can be sponsored by an employer, please complete our free online assessment form.

Employers wanting to sponsor

We work with employers who have not sponsored before to help them obtain approval. We help with all parts of employer sponsorship to make sure that your business will meet the requirements. To find out more please contact us and one of our experienced registered migration agents will contact you within 24 hours.
