Australian Employer Sponsored Visa
One of the most common ways to secure residency in Australia is through an employer sponsored visa. These are visas designed to address existing skill shortages in Australia by bringing in foreign workers to fill those shortages. If you have found, or are looking to find, an employer who is willing to sponsor you to fill a position in their workforce, an employer sponsorship visa may be for you.
In order to be eligible for one of the employer sponsorship visa options, your occupation will either need to be on the Consolidated Sponsored Occupations List (‘CSOL’) or be of ANZSCO skill level 1-3. Current examples of occupations that would make you eligible for an employer sponsored visa include bricklayers, carpenters and chefs as well as dentists, accountants and civil engineers. However, be aware that the list of occupations that gives you eligibility for an employer sponsorship visa changes all the time. As a result you will need to check if your occupation is eligible to use for migration to Australia at the time you apply for a visa.
