Eligible occupation for employer sponsored visas

Numerous of the occupations which are eligible for employer sponsored visas are now subject to inapplicability conditions or “caveats”.  This means that, whilst the occupations are available for employer sponsored visas, there are conditions which apply to determine the availability of the relevant occupation that employers / employees need to be aware of.  

For example, the “marketing specialist” occupation (ANZSCO 225113) is not available if any of the following apply:

  • The position has a nominated base salary of less than AUD $65,000;
  • The position is based in a front line retail setting or predominantly involves direct client transactional interaction on a regular basis; or
  • The position is in a business that has an annual turnover of less than AUD $1,000,000.
