Sponsoring an Employee into Australia.


The 457 visa will be abolished in March 2018 with significant changes from April 18th 2017 and replaced by the new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa . Click here to read key changes.  The overall process remains as below.


If you have an Australian employer willing to sponsor you permanently to Australia then Mate Migration can also help with the application, whether this is with the Nomination (employers part of the application) or the Application itself (Employee part) or both. Again, just contact us and we can discuss your requirements


In order to sponsor an employee into Australia you will need to be willing to act as the sponsor for the employee.


You will be able to sponsor an employee for over 3 months to a maximum of 4 years.


The employee will only be able to work for the organisation they are sponsored by.


The Visa has three stages.


1. The Company that is sponsoring the employee will need to apply to be a Sponsor through the Australian Government.


2. The company, after being approved as a sponsor, will then need to ‘Nominate’ the employee that they wish to sponsor.


3. The employee makes the application.


The first stage will be the longest, depending on the office that is processing the application. The Nomination can also be put in with the application for sponsorship.


The Employees application stage can take several months. Timings are subject to change by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and new TSS changes, whilst in effect immediately, will only be completed in March 2018.
