How to Become an Australian Business Sponsor
For an Australian business to be able to sponsor an overseas worker on the TSS 482 work visa, that business needs to be registered as an official Standard Business Sponsor. Many employers presume that applying for this sponsorship approval is an expensive process. It isn’t.
The great advantage of being a registered Standard business sponsor is that your company can hire overseas workers for positions that it cannot fill locally. The 482 work visa also allows for a company to transfer workers from an overseas operation to Australia.
To apply to become a registered sponsor is not expensive; it currently costs AU$420 in government application charges. The Nomination stage, however, can be a complicated process but under the guidance of a registered migration agent it is most often successful.
To be eligible to apply to become a sponsor, among other requirements, an Australian business must:
“Have a legally established and currently operating business”
“Have no adverse information regarding your business”. Source: Department of Home Affairs.
When your business is approved to be a Standard Business Sponsor to engage employees from overseas your registration lasts five years.
Applying to Sponsor an Overseas Employee
There are three main steps for a business when applying for a 482 TSS work visa:
- Sponsor: Apply to become an approved Standard Business Sponsor.
- Nomination: Submit the nomination of a specific prospective skilled occupation in your company.
- Visa Application: The skilled worker applies for a 482 visa related to the skilled occupation/position that has been nominated by the Australian business sponsor.
