About the Employer Nomination Scheme

This is a program that includes the famous Subclass 457 Sponsorship Work Visa/482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa but also includes permanent visas for skilled professionals who are being nominated by an employer for a full-time work position in Australia.


The 2 permanent visas in this program are:


  • The Subclass 186 Employer Nomination Permanent Visa (also known as ENS);
  • The Subclass 187 Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa (also known as RSMS)


Both visas require the applicant to have a job offer from an Australian employer. The Subclass 186 visa allows for employers located anywhere in Australia to nominate workers to apply and be granted this visa, while the Subclass 187 allows only for employers to nominate applicants in positions located in Regional Australia.


Regional Australia has different meaning for different visas so please contact us to discuss the location of your job offer so we can check if it falls under the 187 visa. The 187 visa has requirements that are a bit more flexible for employer and employee, so it is an attractive option for most candidates.

Make sure you qualify

Check if you qualify with an agent experienced in this type of application. At Bravo Migration we have worked on hundreds of applications for ENS & RSMS Visas, and our approval rate is very high.

What’s the best Stream for you?

There are 2 application streams for both visas above:


  • The Temporary Residence Transition stream
  • The Direct Entry Stream


The Temporary Residence Transition stream


This stream is for visa applicants who have a Subclass 457 Sponsorship Work Visa/482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa and have worked with the same employer for at least 2 years, in the same position.


You must have skills in the same field and if you don’t hold a passport from an English speaking country you will have to take the IELTS language exam.


The business nominating the 482 visa holder for a permanent 186 visa should:


  • be actively and lawfully operating a business in Australia
  • comply with Australian immigration and workplace relations laws
  • after having sponsored the 482 holder in the last couple of years, the business must have maintained its “Training Australians” obligations associated with being a sponsor for each year it’s been a standard business sponsor.


The Direct Entry Stream


The employer must demonstrate that there is a genuine need for a paid employee to fill that position – it has to make sense within the business and the business’ objectives.


The Visa Applicant must obtain a positive Skills Assessment in the occupation being nominated and show evidence of having at least 3 years of work experience in the same (or very similar) role. If you don’t hold a passport from an English speaking country you will have to take an English language exam.
