Employer Sponsored Regional visas.

Employer sponsored permanent regional visa

Subclass 187 regional sponsored migration scheme - both temporary & direct streams.

The 187 Regional Sponsored Visa allows you to live and work in Australia on a permanent basis for a nominated employer. You can be either outside or in Australia when you apply.

To apply for a 187 visa, you must first have a regional employer to sponsor you. In many cases with 187 visas, workers have found a prospective regional employer to sponsor them but the employer is unsure how to proceed in their application. We can assist both yourself and your employer with the process of successful nomination and sponsorship.

The 187 Regional Sponsored visa allows you to live in Australia on a temporary basis for (4) four years, whilst living and working in regional areas.

When applying through a prospective regional employer, the department of immigration will want to see evidence that your prospective employer is lawful and legally operating. There is also a training benchmark that One World Migration can assist you with.


When applying through Business Sponsorship, the department will also want to know about the position that has been offered to you.


For Business Sponsored Regional migration, we show how your skills and experience are relevant to the position offered.

Conditions of the Sponsorship:

When applying through Business Sponsorship, the position that has been offered to you must be full-time, ongoing and available for at least 2 years. Your prospective employer must provide working conditions that are no less favourable than provided for under the relevant Australian legislation and awards; the offered position must be for a skilled occupation that is on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) and it must meet the minimum salary level for the scheme.

The future of the Sponsorship:

After finalization of the visa, you can only work for the employer that the visa is for. If you want to change jobs, you will have to make a new visa application for a new prospective employer.

A Regional Sponsored visa is valid for (4) four years and the work experience that you gain whilst in Australia can lead to permanent residency via sponsorship with your employer or by the skilled migration program. Immediate family members like your partner and children can also be included in your application and also live and work in Australia on this visa.
