Australia Employer Nomination Scheme Ens


The Australian Employers Nomination System (ENS) is a scheme that enables Australian employers to sponsor foreign citizens to obtain a permanent visa which allows them to work and live in Australia.

The Employer Nomination Scheme requires a thorough evaluation of the professional and the skills designated by the DIBP.

Visa Requirements

Foreign citizens can apply for the ENS if:

  • Appointed by a licensed Australian employer
  • Your age is under 50 years
  • Meet the set conditions for the English language, qualifications and skills

Foreign professionals can send an expression of interest (EOI) via Select Skill if they have not been nominated by an employer

Employers and territorial governments and state can see the details completed at the EOI and may or may not consider you for nomination for skilled migration.

The Australian Government may refuse to give you a visa if you are indebted to the Australian government. However, payment arrangements can change the choice.
