The Employer Migration Program has 2 temporary visas and one permanent visa,
that offers 2 application streams.
The 186 visa is also known as the Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) Visa. It is a permanent visa where your employer nominates you.
1 Temporary Residence Transition: where you apply after you have worked for the same employer in the same position while holding a TSS 482 visa for at least 3 years, or
2 Direct Entry Stream: where you apply anytime without having to have worked for the employer for 3 years. In fact you could even apply before having worked for the employer at all.
The Direct Stream requires applicants to obtain a positive Skills Assessment in the position being offered and show evidence of having at least 3 years of full time (or equivalent part-time) work experience in the same role.
In both Streams, only applicants whose occupations are on the MLTSSL can apply. Except for some applicants who meet Transitional Arrangements.
There is an age limit too: 45 years.
Employers also have to make a contribution to the Skilling Australians Fund but they don’t have to test the local market by advertising the position for at least 28 days to show evidence that they tried to find a local worker for the role.
"I chose Bravo to help me with the most important project of my life: becoming an Australian resident. I was looking for a reliable, professional and capable migration agent. As I shopped around I soon realized that I also wanted someone who would understand the importance of this application in my life. Bravo was extremely professional but also supported me emotionally, showing they cared. This is why they are different. Thank you Bravo for helping me to turn my dream into reality."
