New amendments on accredited sponsorship

Lately, The Immigration Department has announced the new amendments on accredited sponsorship. These amendments are designed to ensure that a larger number of lower risk sponsors have access to accreditation and the priority allocation and streamlined processing arrangements that this entails. Previously, accredited sponsorship was generally only accessible to high volume users of the 457 program.
The DIBP believes that this will lessen subclass 457 processing times, whereas at the same time continuing to focus on Australian workers getting priority where skills shortages exist. 

Below are the new accreditation characteristics that are divided into four different categories. 

  • Category 1: Relates to SBSs that are Australian government agencies (Commonwealth, State & Territory)
  • Category 2: Relates to SBSs that are approved Australian Trusted Traders
  • Category 3: Relates to SBSs categorised as "Low risk" with low volume usage of 457 visas and high percentage of Australian workers (at least 90%)
  • Category 4: Relates to SBSs categorised as "Low risk" with high volume usage of 457 visas and medium percentage of Australian workers (at least 75%)

To qualify for accredited status, it is essential for a sponsor to meet all the requirements for SBS and prove that they meet the additional characteristics in one of the above four categories.
