How to sponsor employees?

There are a number of different ways to sponsor employees to work in Australia which include the subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled Visa), subclass 186 Employer Nomination Scheme visa, Subclass 187 Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa, and the subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) visa.


What is an Overseas Business?

Overseas business can sponsor employees in Australia. An overseas business is defined as a business lawfully operating outside of Australia. The business can operate as an incorprated entitiy, partnership, trust or sole trader.

It must demonstrate intention to sponsor workers to establish Australian business or assist in fulfilling contractual obligation in Australia.

Particularly for overseas businesses, there are two excellent options to bring their workers to Australia.


Sponsoring employees on a Subclass 400 visa – Short Stay Specialist

The 400 visa is perfect for sponsoring employees on short term projects in Australia of up to 6 months and where you need to send your workers to Australia urgently (because the processing time is fairly quick by comparison to many other visas).


Subclass 457 visa - Overseas Business Sponsorship

The 457 visa subclass is available to overseas businesses. Overseas business can be approved as an overseas business sponsor in the same manner as Australian businesses if they are seeking approval to enable the sponsoring of their worker under the 457 scheme and if the worker will either:

  • Establish, or assist in establishing, on behalf of the overseas business, a business operation in Australia with overseas connections; or
  • Fulfil or assist in fulfilling a contractual obligation (in Australia) on behalf of the overseas business.
