Australia is a country dead set on competing with the rest of the world. Local manpower is enough to sustain the economy, but it needs foreign workers to grow further. And you might be someone this country needs.
Australia has the Employer Nomination Scheme wherein individuals are granted permanent residence to overseas workers who are sponsored by their Australian employer. Primarily, this is done and implemented in order to increase the Australian economy’s ability to compete globally and to address the shortage of workers in certain industries. Currently, Australia’s labor force is constantly growing, and it needs migrant workers to keep up with the growth.
This visa allows employers to tap overseas workers to fill certain positions that the Australian labor market cannot. In any case, if you’ve found an employer willing to sponsor you, this is where we come in.
We at EP Migration will help in processing your visa in coordination with your employer. By working with us, your visa application is in good hands, and we will make sure that you will find yourself part of Australia’s steadily increasing workforce.
Bear in mind though, there are certain requirements that must be met, including:
- The nominee (you) should be less than 49 years old.
- Meet the prescribed English proficiency criteria.
- Hold the necessary skills and qualifications for the position.
- Health and character requirements.
There are exceptions to this rule however. Applicants may access exemptions for each of these, and it’s our job to find these and make it work to your advantage.
Take note that successful applicants under the Employer Nomination Scheme will become permanent residents of Australia. If your visa has been approved, you will then be entitled to live, work, and study in the country. You will also enjoy additional benefits such as state-subsidized health care, social security benefits, and the ability to apply for Australian citizenship.
