What's 186 Visa?

This is a work visa that grants permanent residence to you and your family members. You are required to have a sponsor, that’s to say an employer that will offer you a job. The sponsor must also satisfy some requirements.

This visa process has two stages, these steps have to be done in specific times and with specific forms and documents:

1. Nomination application

The business must be legally registered and lawfully and actively operating and must satisfy the training requirement. The approved business sponsor is required to lodge an application for a position that needs to be filled. The occupation must be on the relevant immigration list, the position must be genuine and paid according to the national market rate.

2. Visa application

The prospective visa applicant must lodge an application for a subclass 186 visa. The occupation must match the position proposed and the applicant must show to have the skills to perform the duties. The applicant must also sit an English test and be under 45 or 50 years old depending on the visa stream, few exceptions apply. You must also be free from medical conditions and criminal convictions.
