The Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) allows Australian employers to nominate international workers for permanent skilled positions in their business which cannot be filled as a result of  Australian labour shortage.

There are two steps required for a ENS 186 visa:

Step One: Nomination by the Employer

If you do not already have an Australian employer willing to nominate you, you can lodge an Expression of Interest through the DIBP Skill Select database. This will allow  prospective employers and also  State/Territory Governments to view your details and offer nomination.

The Australian employer may nominate you by demonstrating the following:

  • They are actively and lawfully operating in Australia;
  • They have a genuine need for a paid employee to fill a skilled position;
  • They offer a skilled position in the your field that is full time and ongoing for at least two years;
  • They pay a market salary rate;
  • They comply with Australian immigration and workplace relations laws; and
  • There is no adverse information known about the business or any person associated with the business.

There are a number of additional requirements that must be met at this stage, depending on the circumstances of the business and yourself. Results Migration can assist with identifying which requirements the business needs to meet.

Step Two: Visa Application

After a nomination has been approved, you must lodge your visa application within six (6) months.  To qualify, you must:

  • be less than 50 years of age;
  • meet the prescribed English language criteria; and
  • hold the necessary skills and qualifications for the nominated position.

Again, there are a number of additional requirements that may need to be met at this stage, depending on the circumstances of the business and  yourself. Results Migration can assist with identifying which requirements you need to meet.
