Overseas Business Sponsorship (OBS)

Sponsoring your employees to work in Australia on an Overseas Business Sponsorship: There are various ways for you to do so depending on whether you need your worker in Australia for a short or long period of time (including permanently). 

  • Short term projects can be fulfilled using the subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) visa.
  • Medium to long term projects can be fulfilled using the TSS visa (sc 482 visa - Temporary Skill Shortage visa).
  • A common permanent visa pathway for your employees is the sc 186 Employer Nomination Scheme visa giving your employees access to Medicare for long term assignments.

Take a look at more detailed information about how to sponsor employees.

Many of our overseas business clients in fact opt to use all three of the above options - depending on the work to be done. 


You don’t need to be an Australian business for an Overseas Business Sponsorship

Under an overseas business sponsorship, overseas businesses can sponsor their workers to come to Australia.

Overseas businesses, who don’t have Australian Business Numbers or Australian Registered Body Numbers, can be approved as overseas business sponsors in the same way that Australian businesses can (and with arguably less onerous requirements by comparison). 

Their employees remain employed with the overseas business for the duration of their stay and whilst working in Australia on their TSS visa / sc 482 visa.


TSS visa (482 visa)

From March 2018 the new sc 482 visa (Temporary Skill Shortage visa) has replaced the former 457 visa. The sc 482 visa has two different streams to sponsor from overseas, read more about the new sc 482 visa
