Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 186)

Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visas, or subclass 186 visas, are permanent residency visas for skilled workers.
This visa provides the holder and their family with Australian permanent residency with no conditions. The holder can live and work wherever they like in Australia. Although the visa is granted based on the holder being skilled in a specific occupation, once granted, the visa doesn’t require you to seek or maintain employment in this occupation.

To be eligible for this visa, a skilled individual must be nominated by an Australian employer. To be nominated for the 186 Visa, the applicant must be skilled in an occupation that is listed on the relevant Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List. To apply in the TRT stream, you must be the holder of a subclass 457 visa, a 482 visa, or abridging visa granted in association with one of these subclasses. To apply in the DE stream, you may be in or outside of Australia.
