At TSS Immigration, we not only assist the visa applicant to meet the DIAC requirements, but also work closely with the nominating Australian business to assist and guide them through the regulatory maze.
As a guide, when nominating an overseas worker for a position within their business, an Australian Company wishing to sponsor must meet the following guidelines;
- Demonstrate a financial capacity to meet the legislated minimum salary that the business is required to pay their intended sponsored worker.
- Demonstrate a commitment to training current Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident staff
- Demonstrate compliance with Australian Industrial Relations Law.
The Law, which governs the requirements to which Australian Businesses must comply, has changed greatly over the last 12 months and continues to change and evolve.
