What is an employee sponsorship visa?
An employee sponsorship visa is a type of visa that allows an employer to sponsor an employee for a temporary or permanent stay in the country. The visa may be granted for a variety of reasons, including work, study, or family reunification. The sponsoring employer is responsible for the employee’s welfare and must ensure that the employee has adequate housing, health insurance, and living expenses. The visa may be revoked if the sponsoring employer fails to meet these obligations.

The first stage is the sponsorship application, which must be lodged by the employer with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). The second stage is the visa application, which must be lodged by the employee with DIAC.
The sponsorship application must be lodged online through the DIAC website. The employer will need to create an account and provide their contact details, company information and ABN. They will also need to provide evidence of their ability to support the employee financially, as well as evidence that they have met all of their sponsorship obligations for previous employees.
The visa application must be lodged online through the DIAC website. The employee will need to provide their contact details, passport information and education qualifications.
