Employer Sponsored Visas

If you are wanting to be nominated by an Australian employer to live and work in Australia, an Employer Nominated visa is the visa for you. Results Migration lawyers are specialists in helping you and your sponsor prepare and lodge your application with success rates through the roof! With locations in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Darwin we are more than happy to help both onshore and offshore applicants migrate to Australia for employment purposes.


There are three possible employer sponsored visas one can seek to obtain – a Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa (subclass 457), a Permanent Employment Nomination Scheme (subclass 186) and a Permanent Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (subclass 187).


Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa subclass 457

This visa allows skilled international workers and their families to live and work in Australia for an approved business for a period between two to four years in occupations that on the list of eligible skilled occupations. It involves a three-step application process whereby you will need to obtain a sponsorship by an eligible business, be nominated by an eligible occupation and then apply for the visa.

Employment Nomination Scheme subclass 186

With three streams to choose from 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. To apply, you will need to engage in a two step process – a nomination by an approved Australian employer and a visa application under the nomination stream.

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme subclass 187

The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme is a replica of the 186 visa above, however it is designed for applicants and employers in regional or low population areas of Australia.
