186-187 ENS & RSMS

The Subclass 186 and 187 Employer Nomination Scheme/Regional Skilled Migration Scheme are permanent visas that allow you to live and work in Australia.

These visas allow you to apply for citizenship once you have met the requirements.

Points are awarded based on an applicant’s personal attributes such as age, English language ability, skills, work experience, education, a study in Australia or overseas.


You’re given the opportunity to sponsor other family members for visiting or living in Australia. Therefore, your family members and dependents can also apply for the same after the qualifying period.

Subclass 186 Visa Requirements


You must:

 

  • be nominated by an approved Australian employer.
  • have a minimum of three years of work experience and a Positive Skills Assessment from an approved Skills Assessing Authority for their occupation.
