Why You Should Consider The Australian Employer Nomination Scheme Visa?

This article aims to briefly examine the Australian Employer Nomination Scheme Visa and why an eligible applicant should consider applying for this visa which is otherwise knowns as subclass 186.

Direct Entry Scheme

Unless otherwise stated, a qualified applicant who has found a qualified Australian employer to sponsor his/her visa application, should consider the Direct Entry Scheme and once granted the visa, benefit from living, working, and studying in Australia indefinitely.

How does the nomination work and who can nominate me?

It is important that the employer nominator’s business is active and lawfully established in Australia. The authority(s) will also look to see if there is any adverse information about the employer nominator or person associated with them. Once you are nominated, you are required to apply for the visa within 6 months of the nomination being approved. Your occupation must also be in the relevant list of eligible skilled occupations. 

Do I need to have work experience in order to apply for the visa?

Unless an applicant is exempt, most applicants need to have at least 3 years of relevant work experience in the occupation they are nominated for. If an applicant is exempt from the skills assessment, then he/she is also exempt from the work experience requirement.
