Subclass 186 Employer Nomination Scheme visa

The 186 Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visa allows workers with eligible fulltime positions of at least 2 years with an Australian based organisation or business (including sole proprietors) to be nominated to live and work in Australia permanently.

The organisation or business will need to lodge a nomination application in light of the position, before the worker may lodge a visa application.

The 186 ENS comprises of three streams which are detailed below. At the outset, we can assist by assessing eligibility under each of these streams and advising on the best option for your worker, given the nature of the contract on offer and their personal circumstances.
