Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 186)

Who is the Employment Nomination Scheme Subclass 186 for?

The Australian Employer Nomination Scheme lets Australian businesses employ workers from abroad within Australia, when they can not first fill the roles with Australian’s due to shortages. Under this scheme, international workers are given a permanent skilled position.

The Subclass 186 visa has three different tiers that an applicant can apply from. Each of these three tiers has a two-step application process. First, the international worker must be nominated by an Australian employer and only then can they submit an application. 


What are the three streams of a 186 visa?

The three types of the 186 visa are Temporary Residence, Direct Entry and Agreement.

1. Temporary Residence Transition Stream

If you already hold a 457 visa and want to transition your visa status into permanent residency, you can apply through the Temporary Residence Transition stream, granting your Australian employer is offering a permanent position.

2. Direct Entry Stream

The second option available for the 186 Visa is through Direct Entry. This is the best avenue for those who have never worked in Australia and have been nominated by their Australian employer or those who are not eligible under Temporary Residence Transition.

3. Agreement Stream

The agreement stream is a direct entryway for permanent residency for those who are sponsored by their Australian employer through a formal labour agreement.


Am I Eligible for a 186 Visa?

To be eligible for this type of visa you must have the following:

  • Be nominated by your approved Australian employer at least six months before your application date.
  • Be able to show you have the necessary skills and qualifications for your nominated position at the time of application.
  • Hold any mandatory licenses, qualifications or memberships to be a viable candidate.
  • Have sound English skills unless you are exempt;
  • Meet health and character requirements

Depending on which avenue you take, you will need to prove you meet all requirements outlined.

When applying under the Temporary Residence Transition stream, you must be under 50 years of age (unless exempt), have a temporary skilled work visa (subclass 457) and have held the same occupation for at least two years. As an exception,  If you are eligible for a 186 visa under this stream, you do not need your skills reassessed. 

Those applying for an ENS via Direct Entry can not be older than 45 (unless exempt) at the time of application, hold a minimum of three years work experience (relevant to your job/industry), have an approved skills assessment for your nominated occupation. You also must:

  • Have been nominated for a position under this stream
  • Have never (or only very briefly) worked on Australian soil
  • Hold a 457 visa and found ineligible for the temporary or residence stream.
  • Apply from another country and not on Australian soil

If submitting an application under the Agreement stream, your employer must sponsor you under a labour agreement.


186 Visa Checklist

How Long Does it Take?

After receiving your application, the Department of Immigration will start processing your documents.

1. Temporary Residence Transition Pathway

75% of applications have an 8 month processing time, however, applications may differ.

2. Direct Entry Pathways

Most applications take around 8 months to assess. 

3. Agreement Stream

The average processing time of visa applications under this stream is unviable as it receives a much lower volume of applications.

The above-mentioned processing times of the three different streams are subject to change and variance as the assessment is done via a case by case basis. 

Certain circumstances out of your control may have an effect on the processing time of your application. Such circumstances include health and police services and the Government which can impact timelines for checking and verifying information. 

While these are beyond everyone’s control, there are some things you can do to ensure a faster turnaround for your application:

  • Ensuring your application is fully complete, accurate and contains all the necessary supporting documentation.
  • Quickly and accurate in responding to any and all requests from Government departments for more information.

Fees & Costs

The cost of an ENS (186) visa starts at $3,670 and must be paid to two different instalments – at time of application and then when the Department of Immigration instructs you to pay the next instalment.

Please keep in mind that pricing is just the flat rate for the visa application, there may be additional costs for covering medical examinations, background checks and document verifications.

There will also be additional fees for those who plan on adding family members to their application. 


What Steps Should I Take to apply for a 186 Visa?

Applying for visas can be complicated and a lot to take in, which is why Results Migration makes the application process easy and stress-free. This visa has a two-step application process. The first is being nominated by an approved Australian employer and the second is the visa application itself. Our team of qualified immigration lawyers will work with you and assist with both stages of the application process and create a step by step plan to ensure the application is processed as quickly as possible.

  1. The first step is to book in a free consultation with Results Migration where we will assess your situation and advise on the best visa option for you. 
  2. After this consultation, we will gather and prepare your documents and perform any additional checks required for your application.
  3. Results Migration will then start preparing and lodge your application as quickly as possible. While your application is pending, if you are already in Australia, you will automatically be granted a bridging visa. This will allow you to stay in the country until the outcome of your visa application is decided.
  1. Lastly, Results Migration will notify you on your visa outcome.

  • Study and work rights on Australian soil.

186 Visa FAQs

Who can nominate a skilled worker?

In order to nominate a skilled worker, you must adhere to the following criteria:

  • Actively operate a business on Australian soil
  • Genuinely need to employ someone to fill a skilled position.
  • Be offering a full-time position in the applicant’s skill field that will be ongoing for a minimum of two years.
  • Pay a salary that is the market rate or more.
  • Comply with all workplace relations and Australian immigration laws.
  • No adverse information regarding your Australian business or any employees or people associated with it.

If you want to apply for this visa but can not find an Australian employer willing to nominate you, you may express your interest via submitting an application of interest through SkillSelect. By doing so, prospective employers and the Government to view your details/case and then choose to nominate you for the visa.
