There are a number of different migration visas available to employees and employers in Australia.
M Legal can help navigate visa options and manage the visa application process from end-to-end. Migration visa options for employees and employers include:
Temporary Skills Shortage Visa (TSS) (Subclass 482)
The TSS visa (replaced by the commonly known as (subclass 457) visa) allows skilled individuals to work in Australia for periods of up to 2 or 4 years. Only certain occupations are eligible for the 482.
Employer Nominated Scheme Visa (ENS) (Subclass 186)
The Employer Nomination Scheme requires an Australian based employer operating in Australia to nominate their sponsored employee for a permanent visa.
Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa (RSMS) (Subclass 187)
The RSMS is a visa that requires a job offer in a regional area. The position needs to be approved by a Regional Certifying Body prior to lodging the visa application and leads to a permanent visa.

For people undertaking highly specialised work on a temporary basis, or if they are working for reasons relating to Australia’s interest.
