Sponsored visas. Is it true?

Recommended Posts

Greetings people,

I have understood that it's basically impossible to get a job offer in Australia if you're not in the country. Is this true? If so, then why does the visas 186, 187, 190 exist? Or do companies grant their positions to people living outside of Australia only if you have an exceptional and outstanding achievement in your profession?

On the other hand, how do you get nominated by an employer or by state or territory government agency? (I'm an engineer, by the way)

Looking forward to your response. Thanks in advance.

Employers do make offers and arrange visas for people outside of Australia, but usually only arrange a temporary visa - the new TSS as of tomorrow or what was the 457. The majority of 186 and 187 are sponsored by employers for staff already working for them on a 457. 

You do not need an employer for a 190. 

If you are an engineer, you may be better looking at 189 or a 190. The 189 doesn't need any form of sponsorship, a 190 needs state sponsorship.
