187 visa Tasmania

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

First time posting, I have lived in Australia for 6 years now and I have PR but always found this page very helpful, when I was going through all the visa stages. What I need help with is.....

My younger brother is here on a working holiday visa. He works as a barber (fully trained, certificates, 10+yrs experience). He wishes to apply for the 187 regional sponsorship visa in Tasmania. The processes have changed somewhat since my 457 visa days in Melbourne, where I still live, so I’m not much help!

Can he apply for this visa by himself by taking a skills assessment or does he need to have a valid employer who sponsors him? He currently still lives in Victoria, so can he apply for himself before moving to Tasmania?

Thanks in advance for any guidance anyone can give.

For a 187 visa:

 - you must be nominated by an Australian employer
 - you will work for your nominating employer in regional Australia
- your occupation must be on the relevant list of eligible skilled occupations (and you may need a skills assessment)
