From 1 July 2012 a new Employer Nomination Scheme and Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa is available.

Skilled Workers Permanent Visa Options:

From 1 July 2012 a new Employer Nomination Scheme and Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa is available. Within each of these visa subclasses there will be three streams:

  • The Temporary Residence Transition stream
  • The Direct Entry stream
  • The Agreement stream.
Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186):

The Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) enables employers to sponsor highly skilled workers to fill skilled vacancies in their business. Employers can employ skilled workers from overseas, or temporary residents who are living and working in Australia.

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (subclass 187):

The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) enables employers in regional, remote or low population growth areas of Australia to nominate highly skilled workers from overseas, or temporary residents living and working in Australia to fill skilled vacancies in their business.

The Employer Nomination Scheme visa (subclass 186):

The Employer Nomination Scheme visa (subclass 186) is for skilled workers from outside Australia or skilled temporary residents who currently live and work in Australia. It is part of the permanent Employer Sponsored visa program.
To apply for this visa, you must:

  • be nominated by an approved employer
  • be younger than 50 years of age
  • meet the skills and qualifications requirements
  • meet English language requirements.

There are exemptions relating to age, skills and English language ability. These depend on your nominated occupation, salary and past work experience.
If you do not have an employer who will nominate you, you can lodge an Expression of Interest through SkillSelect. Employers and state and territory governments can then view your details and decide whether to nominate you for skilled migration.
If you owe the Australian Government money, you may not be eligible to be granted a visa until you have made arrangements to pay the debt.

“Choosing the right migration consultant is difficult. I consulted with many Migration Agents, but Opal Consulting impressed me a lot. I applied for a visa for my husband, which was rejected. After some time my friends suggested that I try “Opal Consulting”. I was amazed with their professionalism and the way they arranged my documents. They kept me up to date throughout the whole process. We got the visa after 3 months. Yeah! Finally I was so happy to see my husband after 3 years and with hard struggle.”
