An Australian or overseas employer who want to employ suitable overseas candidates to work in Australia, may apply for a visa under Employer Sponsored Program. Employers nominate and sponsor skilled workers to work in Australia on a permanent basis.
There are three different options of visa under the Employer Sponsored Migration.
1) Employer Nomination
Australian employers may recruit full-time highly skilled workers to fill the positions in Australia when employers are unable to fill a vacancy from the Australian labour market.
2) Regional Sponsored Migration
This category allows Australian employers in regional or low population growth areas of Australia to fill skilled positions that they are unable to fill from Australian labour market.
3) Labour Agreements
This program is designed to encourage international firms that will make a significant investment to choose Australia as a location for foreign direct investment.
