Employer Nomination Scheme(ENS)-S/C186
ENS is a permanent resident visa and can apply for a visa through the nomination of an employer. The applicant needs under 45 years old.
ENS can support two streams.
ENS can support two streams.
- Direct Entry Stream: requires a technical review and at least three years of experience and is available in MLTSSL.
- Temporary Residence Transition Stream: Your employer has already sponsored an applicant with an 457/TSS visa and has worked for that sponsor for at least three years.
- Recent Financial Documents: Financial Report
- The employer must set the amount of the visa applicant's annual salary in accordance with the salary of the business associate, or industry award. The amount of annual salary is determined by researching the relevant occupation group. Therefore, it is possible to avoid unnecessary annual salary setting because it receives accurate information through consultation. Particularly, this is the reason the nomination application is not successful. This is the part that needs to be consulted by an expert.

- DE Stream: skill assessment is required from July 1, 2018
- DE Stream: 3 years full time xxperience in the occupation
- Temporary Residence Transition (TRT) Stream: at least 3 years employment after 457/TSS visa
