Skilled Worker › Skilled Employer Visa (186)

The Employer Nomination Scheme Visa (subclass 186) is a permanent residency visa that requires the skilled worker to be nominated by an approved Australian employer. This visa involves a two-step process, firstly, nomination by an approved Australian employer and then an application under the nominated stream. The application can be lodged in or outside Australia. If you are in Australia when you apply, you must hold a Substantive Visa or a Bridging Visa A, B or C.

The Skilled Employer Visa has Three Streams:

  1. The Temporary Residence Transition stream is for subclass 457 Temporary Workers Visa holders who have worked for two years, while holding a subclass 457 Visa, in the same occupation with their nominating employer (who is not subject to a labour agreement and who has lodged a valid nomination with us under the Temporary Residence Transition stream), who wants to offer them a permanent position in that occupation.
  2. The Direct Entry stream is for:
    • People who have been nominated by their employer under the Direct Entry stream;
    • People who have never, or only briefly, worked in Australia, or…
    • Temporary residents who do not qualify for the Temporary Residence Transition stream.
  3. The Agreement stream is for subclass 457 Temporary Workers Visa holders sponsored by an employer through a labour agreement.
