The ENS visa program allows employers to sponsor existing or potential employees for permanent residence. There are two streams under the ENS: Temporary Residence Transition stream and Direct Entry stream. Both streams require the employer/sponsor to nominate the employee for an MLTSSL occupation that appears on the Combined list. Only MLTSSL occupations are eligible for this visa UNLESS the applicant held or applied for their 457 visa before 18 April 2017. Once the ENS nomination application has been lodged, a Subclass 186 visa application may then be lodged.
ENS / 186 visa – Temporary Residence Transition stream
Under this stream, the applicant must have worked for the sponsor/employer for at least two years in the same occupation on a 457 visa. After two years of employment on a 457 visa, the sponsor may then nominate the employee for permanent residence.
ENS / 186 visa – Direct Entry stream
Under this stream, the applicant does not have to work for the sponsor/employer for any specific period of time. The two stage employer nomination and 186 visa application also applies for the Direct Entry stream.
The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) / 187 visa is only available for those applicants who already hold a temporary 457/482 work visa and have worked for thier employer for at least 3 years. The program is closed to most new applicants as it was replaced by the Regional 491/494 visa programs.
