Sponsored Work Visas

This type of visas is designed to help employers fill positions that are vacant due to labour shortages. If you are employed or have a job offer in a specific occupation, an Employer Sponsored visa could be your most straightforward migration path.

The application process involves separate applications by employers and visa applicants. Requirements vary depending on factors such as visa subclass, nominated occupation, location of employment and more. Visa applicants are required to provide evidence of their relevant work experience, academic qualifications, English proficiency, health and good character.

Employers are generally expected to demonstrate that the business is lawfully operating, no suitable Australian employees are available and meet minimum salary and employment conditions.

The three most common Employer Sponsored visas are:

  • Temporary Skills Shortage visa (TSS – Subclass 482) – temporary visa with a potential path to Permanent Residence after 3 years of sponsored employment. Visa period and Permanent Residence options are determined by the nominated occupation.
  • Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 494) – temporary 5-year visa for positions located in Regional Australia. This visa is available for a wider range of occupations and offers a path to Permanent Residence after 3 years of sponsored employment.
  • Employer Sponsored Nomination Scheme visa (Subclass 186) – Permanent visa available to some TSS visa holders who have been employed in their nominated position for at least 3 years. Applicants who are not TSS visa holders may also be eligible to apply, depending on their age, occupation and work experience.

Skilled Migration

General Skilled Migration (GSM) is a group of visas designed to attract highly skilled and experienced professionals. It covers a wide range of occupations, from medicine to engineering and construction. The main benefit of GSM visas is that visa holders are free to pursue employment without depending on a Sponsor.

Skilled visas can only be applied for with an invitation from the Department of Home Affairs. Candidates submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) through a system called SkillSelect. The Department uses SkillSelect to rate candidates using a point-based system (the Points Test). The Points Test is made up of factors such as age, English skills, work experience and more.

A minimum score of 65 points is necessary for an EOI to be considered. However, due to the limited number of visas available each year, a higher score is often required to secure an invitation to apply for a Skilled visa. Successful candidates are given 60 days to lodge a visa application following the invitation.

The first steps in applying for Skilled visas involve selecting the most suitable occupation for you, undertaking a Skills Assessment, sitting an English exam and gathering evidence of work experience and academic qualifications.

The most common General Skilled Migration visas are:

  • Skilled – Independent visa (Subclass 189) permanent visa allowing holders to full rights to live and work in Australia as they wish. This visa subclass is highly sought after and often requires the highest Points Score.
  • Skilled – Nominated visa (Subclass 190) – permanent visa which requires Nomination by one of the Australian States or Territories. Each State has its own set of eligibility criteria. For example, you may be required to already be living in the nominating State.
  • Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 491) – temporary 5-year visa with a path
    to permanent residence after 3 years. A nomination by an Australian State or Territory, or an eligible Australian relative is necessary. Visa holders are required to live and work in Regional Australia.

Partner Visas

Partner visas are available for partners of Australian citizens, permanent residents and eligible New Zealand citizens. If you are in a genuine, exclusive relationship with an Australian, you may be eligible for a Partner visa.

Visa applications are made up of a two-stage process; temporary (provisional) and permanent. Most applicants are eligible for permanent residence 2 years after lodging their application, provided that their relationship is ongoing. Couples can be married or in a de-facto relationship. Same-sex and heterosexual couples
are treated equally.

Relationships are assessed carefully. Relevant factors include living arrangements, how finances are shared, being known in public as a couple and more. Visa applicants are required to be of good character and pass a health examination. Australian partners are required to submit a separate sponsorship application.

Processing times for Partner visa applications are long. This can be problematic for visa applicants, particularly those who are not already in Australia. At Rysher Migration, we assist couples to find the right migration solution for their situation.

The most common Partner Visas are:

  • Onshore visa path (Subclass 820/801) this visa path is designed for individuals who
    are present in Australia at the time of application. Bridging visas allow applicants to live and work in Australia while their application is being processed.
  • Offshore visa path (Subclass 309/100) – for couples who are outside Australia at the time
    of application.
  • Prospective Marriage visa (Subclass 300) – designed for couples who intend to get married in Australia. Once the visa is granted, holders are required to marry within 9 months. Onshore Partner visa applications (subclass 820/801) are lodged following the marriage.

Parent Visas

A range of visa paths is available to parents of settled Australians. Options vary by parents age, cost, processing time and more. If your child is an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, you may be eligible for a Parent visa.

Most Parent visas are subject to the Balance of Family test. This test looks at the number of settled Australian and non-Australian children in the family. Payment of a security bond (Assurance of Support) may be necessary, depending on the visa subclass.

The Australian child is required to lodge a separate Parent Sponsorship application. Sponsors are expected to be able to provide financial support and accommodation to their parents, should the need arise.

There are 4 main factors to consider when choosing the most suitable parent visa for you:

  • Age – pension – age parents have more visa options to choose from (for example, subclass 804 or 884 visas). Aged parent visa applicants are usually granted Bridging visas so they can remain in Australia while their application is being processed.
  • Fees – parent – visa application charges vary significantly. More affordable options involve extended processing times which can take many years. On the other hand, Contributory Parent visas such as the subclass 143 visa, offer shorter processing times for a high application charge.
  • Visa period – Parent visas can be temporary or permanent. Applicants who wish to stay in Australia temporarily may find for the temporary Sponsored Parent visa (subclass 870) most suitable. Visa periods are up to 5 years with an optional renewal by offshore application.
  • Work rights and social benefits – some parent visas give holders access to Medicare and permission to work however that is not always the case. Careful consideration of the parent’s needs is necessary to ensure they are met.

Training Visas

If you are seeking professional development opportunities in Australia, a Training visa (subclass 407) could be your best option. Training visas are available in a wide range of occupations, from Scientists to Cooks and Nurses. Lower skills requirements make Training visas an attractive option for those who are not eligible for other sponsored/skilled visas.

The visa period can be up to 2 years, subject to your training needs. Separate visa and nomination applications are necessary. A range of requirements apply to training providers, including an approved Temporary Activities Sponsorship. Your employer can nominate you for a Training visa.

A structured training program is typically required. It should be detailed and specific to the visa applicant’s needs. A mix of hands-on, employment based and classroom training is acceptable. The purpose of your training could be professional registration, enhancing skills or obtaining expertise to be utilised in your home country.

Student Visas

Australia has an international reputation as an attractive destination for overseas students. Student visas (subclass 500) allow holders to live, study and work in Australia. Student visas can also provide a path to other work visas such as the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485).

Student visas are granted for up to 5 years, depending on the course. Applicants must enrol on a CRICOS registered course prior to lodging their visa application. Registered CRICOS Courses are full time, government approved courses. Other requirements include suitable health insurance, sufficient financial capacity, English skills and having a genuine intent to study.
