WORKERS REQUIRE SPONSORSHIP by an eligible employer before they apply for this visa. The process requires 3 separate applications to the department, namely: Sponsorship; Nomination; and Visa Application. Together, the process can take between 3-6 months – more or less, depending on the quality of the application and the issues involved. Family members can come along to work and study on the same visa. This visa normally lasts 4 years and there is no limit on the number of renewals, provided all the criteria are met each time. After 2 years on this visa, you and your family may be eligible to apply for a permanent residence visa.
If you are an employer or a company we offer corporate rates. This is reserved for companies with multiple-employee processing needs. It is best for your company representative to discuss this with us directly.
