Services for Employers - Help with Employee Visa Sponsorship

News and updates

The common sponsorship options for Australian employers seeking to recruit migrant labour are sponsorship under employer nominated visas (186 - ENS/187 - RSMS) or the 457 - Temporary Work visa. 

The requirements for business sponsorship are numerous and employers can be overwhelmed by the effort. Visa Migration Services Australia removes the burden and stress with its professional case-management of employer sponsorship.

Some of the matters that need to be addressed are to prove that the need for the position is genuine, efforts have been made to recruit local labour to fill the position, the terms and conditions will be the same as offered to Australian citizens or permanent residents performing the same role in the workplace or workforce, the pay rate is acceptable, the business spends an appropriate amount of money training its employees. 

It appears straightforward, however as is the case with many immigration matters the certain types of information must be supplied in a certain way. This is very important and Visa Migration Services Australia have makes this process as straightforward and stress-free as possible.
