The employer sponsored visa programs enable local South Australian businesses to fill skills needs when they have been unable to fill a skilled position locally.
If you are having difficulty filling vacancies locally in your business, sponsoring a skilled migrant through an employer sponsored visa program may help you fill your skills needs.
There are two employer sponsored visa pathways available to local businesses in South Australia.
- Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA) - Temporary Skill Shortage visa (subclass 482) & Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494) - Labour Agreement Streams
- Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494 Employer Sponsored Stream)
Applying for endorsement or seeking advice for employing overseas workers will allow you to:
- Recruit skilled workers in cases where you are unable to find a local worker
- Access an extensive list of occupations with a range of concessions to the standard skilled visa criteria.
