What is Employer Nomination Scheme visa – subclass 186

Employer Nomination Scheme visa, part of the Permanent Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS), facilitates the permanent migration of overseas individuals to Australia through employer nomination.

To secure a Subclass 186 visa, you must be offered a job by an Australian employer who nominates you. The feasibility of finding a nominator depends on practical factors, with a higher likelihood if you’re already residing in Australia.

Eligible occupations must align with the Subclass 186 Occupations List and genuinely complement the nature of the business. The employer should demonstrate their inability to source an Australian worker, commit to paying the market salary rate, and provide conditions equivalent to those offered to Australian employees. Before applying for the visa, a prerequisite is accumulating three years of work experience in the nominated occupation and obtaining accreditation for qualifications and work experience in Australia.

The Subclass 186 visa offers two primary eligibility pathways, along with a Labour Agreement stream. The first allows direct application for permanent residence, while the second lets you transition to the Subclass 186 visa after three years of employment under a Subclass 482 visa with the same employer.

Navigating the nomination process as an employer can be intricate. Smaller businesses might be reluctant due to the complexities and costs involved in becoming a nominator. Legal guidance may also be sought to ascertain the possibility of nominating an individual and understand the associated process, expenses, and responsibilities.
