Employer Sponsorship Visas, This scheme (ENS) results in a permanent visa for the sponsored employee. It is a basic pathway for subclass 482 visa holders to qualify for permanent residence, but has a higher skill level than the subclass 482.
There are two major steps involved in this visa. A nomination by an approved Australian employer and an application by the skilled overseas worker. The nomination flow can be any of following:
- The Temporary Residence Transition Steam
- The Direct Entry Stream
- The Labor Agreement Stream
This visa is a permanent residence visa for skilled workers who want to work in regional and Australia wide. It allows you to live and work in Australia under one of three streams mentioned earlier. The visa applicant can be offshore or onshore at the time of application. The visa applicants must hold a valid visa to apply this visa onshore (in Australia).
