Nomination requirement and fees for 186 ENS Direct Entry?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm currently working (IT Professional) with the 485 Temporary Visa.

At first, my boss told me that they are not able to help me sponsor any kind of visa.

However, I'm negotiating about the possibility to negotiate them for sponsoring me 186 ENS Direct Entry.

As the number of 189/190 invitation will be less next year. As well, I think I might not able to make more English to obtain points but will try it for sure.

I don't think about taking CCL or Professional Year too. Let's see I am able to secure a job here without PY.

I'm just wondering about requirement and fees for both applicants and nomination (Briefly, will ask for immigration lawyer soon if they agree to sponsor).


  • Age under 45 (I'm 30)
  • Has 3 years relevant experiences (4 years overseas which ACS will deduct 2 years = 2 years + 1 year Aus experience soon on Nov 19 = 3 years)
  • Eligible Occupation (My occupation in MLTSSL)
  • Competent English (IELTS Overall 6.5 - L7.5 R7 W,S 6)


  • Position relates to business (Local software company, mainly run by IT stuff)
  • Ongoing position for 2 years (My contract is permanent)
  • Salary equal to or more than AMSR

Fees (for nomination)

  • 540 AUD for DHA
  • 3000 AUD for Skill Australia funds levy (Annual turnover less than 10 million AUD)

Am I understand correctly (in briefly) about sponsoring ??

And how about Market Labour Testing? Actually, I don't need to do as I'm from countries where Australia has trade agreement but just wondering do we need to demonstrate anything about this?
