..and much much more!

doing a geographical

856 visa. Sponsor need to show evidence of company training?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

When nominating a person for the 856 would you say immigration will need to be shown evidence of training in the company. And if so does the amount spent on training need to be a certain amount? Are they strict on this issue?

 

Did your sponsor need to show this when nominating you for an 856??

 

Thanks so much.

Yes, this is one of the main criteria for the subclass 856 nomination.

thanks ABA. I had a look on the immi website and can't seem to find that many details on the criteria of this. Do they give any indication on specific rules on this e.g. what % of turnover should be spent, or how much per australian employee etc.?

This is not an easy question as there is no “one shoe fits all” answer. Unlike the training requirement for the 457 program, there is no percentage expenditure benchmark for the ENS program.

 

The Regulations on this point are quite basic and one needs to look at the relevant Policy and assess the business on a case by case basis.

 

Basically the sponsor needs to show that employees of the business continue to be provided with training opportunities to upgrade their skills and that the sponsor does not simply rely on importing skills from overseas.

The Employer Nomination visa (subclasses 121 and 856) closed to new applications on 1 July 2012. You can add your partner or a dependent child to your application if it has not yet been decided.

The Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) allowed Australian employers to sponsor employees who are foreign nationals for a permanent visa to work in Australia. The Employer Nomination visa (subclasses 121 and 856) visa is for applicants who were in Australia and lodged a visa application on or before 30 June 2012.

Luckily this post was from 2011 so I'm guessing they got in on time.
