Permanent Migration

Employer Nomination Scheme – Subclass 186

The employer nomination scheme (Subclass 186) is a permanent residence visa for skilled workers. It allows you to work in Australia under one of three streams:

  1. Temporary residence transition stream,
  2. Direct entry stream, 
  3. Labour agreement stream.


This stream may be available if your employer wishes to sponsor you for Permanent Residence. You may be eligible under this stream if you hold either of the following:

  • Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482) in the medium-term stream, and
  • Have worked for your employer full-time in Australia on your TSS subclass 482/457 visa(s) for at least 3 out of the previous 4 years (before the nomination is made) in the same position that they have nominated you for.
