A key part of the permanent Employer Sponsored visa program of Australia, the visa under discussion is basically meant for those qualified workers from overseas or those trained temporary residents who stay and do a job inside Down Under.
Australia Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186) has 3 classes:
The Temporary Residence Transition Class: It’s for those holders of the subclass 457 visa who have done in Australia a job for a period of two years and their job-provider wishes to proffer them a position which is of a permanent nature.
The Direct Entry Class: It’s for those individuals who have never, or only for a short time been involved with the labor market of the nation and have a job-provider in Australia who is willing to nominate them.
The Agreement Class: It’s for those individuals who have sponsorship from a job-provider, via a labor or regional migration deal.
