Sponsoring a skilled overseas worker
Are you looking at employing overseas workers for your business? If so, you may want to consider sponsoring a worker under the subclass 457 visa. This kind of visa is called a Temporary Work (Skilled) visa, and is used to quickly engage overseas workers in certain occupations for up to four years.
To employ an overseas worker, you must first be approved by the Department of Immigration as a standard business sponsor. This allows businesses who are having difficulty finding local skilled workers to employ foreign workers who have recognised qualifications or skills in particular occupations.
