Australia’s skill shortage means that you may need to look beyond our borders for the right people occasionally. This may be especially so if your business is in a niche industry and requires specialised expertise.

However, Australia’s employer sponsored visa program is both challenging and time-consuming.

To help you, LegalVision has developed this free Employer Guide to Sponsoring Foreign Workers.



In this guide, we explain:

  • the different visa types, including Subclass 482, 494 and 186;
  • visa sponsorship fees;
  • how to become an employer sponsor;
  • employer accreditation requirements and obligations;
  • how to satisfy labour market test requirements;
  • salary rates for foreign workers; and
  • labour agreements.

If you need further assistance with sponsoring foreign workers, our experienced immigration lawyers and migration agents can assist. Call us on 1300 544 755 today.
