Can an Australian employer sponsor someone who has no work experience?

Recommended Posts

Suppose the owner of an Australian company knows a distant relative who lives overseas. He recently graduated from a good overseas university but doesn't have that much work experience. Can the Australian employer sponsor that graduate to come work for him in Australia?

Does the person have a skill that is on one of the current lists? Does the applicant meet all other requirements for whichever visa he is being sponsored for? Does the company meet the requirements for sponsorship?

Yes. Not sure. Yes.

Rules vary by occupation but doing a degree is not skilled, its just the beginning post graduate work experience is required. Companies can't sponsor who they like only those meeting visa requirements

And companies who attempt to sponsor relatives for work visas can expect extra-special scrutiny. 🙂
