Step 1: Sponsorship
To begin applying for Subclass 494, the sponsoring employer needs to be an approved standard business sponsor. If the current employer is not an approved sponsor, we can assist in applying for standard business sponsorship.
Step 2: Nomination
To begin applying for Subclass 494, your sponsoring employer needs to nominate you for a permanent position in your nominated occupation.
Step 3: Regional Certifying Body Approval
When you nominate someone for a Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Direct Entry visa stream, the position you nominate them for must be assessed by a regional certifying body. Regional certifying body assessments give the Department information about local labour market conditions and other relevant regional matters.
Step 4: Visa Application
Once nomination and RCB has been applied for, we will help you apply for Subclass 494 visa.
