From 1 July 2018 all businesses will be able to sponsor highly skilled and specialised workers who will help to grow their businesses and create more jobs.

The scheme includes two streams – one for established businesses and one for start-ups.The pilot will run for 12 months and provide businesses with a streamlined process to sponsor overseas workers with cutting edge skills, where there are no suitable Australians available to fill the vacancies.

All businesses sponsoring workers to Australia under the scheme will need to demonstrate that they have been unable to source suitable individuals in the Australian labour market.

Workers sponsored under the scheme will have access to a Temporary Skills Shortage visa and permanent residence after three years.
