The Employer Nomination Scheme is a program that includes the famous Subclass 457 Sponsorship Work 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.
