Applying to become a Standard Business Sponsor
Applying to become a Standard Business Sponsor is the first step when considering sponsoring overseas workers in Australia.
A Standard Business Sponsorship enables businesses to be approved for a period of 5 years to nominate skilled overseas workers in Australia for a TSS (subclass 482) visa.
Organisations must satisfy the Department that they are lawfully operating. This can be demonstrated by providing evidence of business registrations, and other legal documentation.
The business must also be actively trading. For established businesses this means showing evidence that the business trades on a day to day basis and is actively operating.
For new businesses such as start-ups, this requirement must also be satisfied however the Department will take a flexible approach when assessing this criteria.
The Department must be satisfied that there is no adverse information against the business or anyone associated with the business (directors, shareholders etc).
Adverse information is any information that may impact your suitability to be approved as a sponsor.
In some circumstances it can be reasonable to disregard this information.
