Sponsorship

Recommended Posts

I dont think there is an age limit on the employer sponsored visa but it would only be temporary, the age limit for PR is 45

Hi Daryl,

My understanding is that there isn't an age limit for sponsorship on a temporary visa

As others have mentioned, you can be sponsored for a 482 temporary visa. Depending on which list your occupation is on, will dictate how long it is granted for. If it is on the short term list, then a maximum of two years, if on the long term list then a maximum of four years. 

You should also be aware there are a number of issues with this visa.

Thank you all for your replies,  would that mean at the end of the term I could not apply for permanent residency?

No, you can't become apply for PR as the threshold for that is 45

And what are the issues with this visa?

Besides being only a temporary visa.

If you are taking a family, the partners can have trouble finding work as companies are not keen

The visa is tied to the employer, so lose your job for any reason and you lose the visa

If you have children, WA state government charges temp visa holders for education and if the children reach an age to go to university they are international students which means no government assistance and international fees. On returning home to the UK , they need to be resident for three years before they are eligible for university as a home student or are treated as an international.

Yourselves are not entitled to any form of government assistance while in Australia and on returning, the UK imposes restrictions on assistance to returnees.

Again, thank you, great information.
