|In order to sponsor employees for TSS 482 visas, most businesses need to be approved as a Standard Business Sponsor.|
|STANDARD BUSINESS SPONSORSHIP REQUIREMENTS||There are several significant obstacles to overcome in order to acquire this approval:
|SPONSORSHIP PERIOD OF VALIDITY||Sponsorship permission is usually valid for 5 years after it is acquired. There are, however, a few exceptions to this rule:
|LIMITATION ON NUMBER OF SPONSORED EMPLOYEES||Employers must identify how many employees they would sponsor during the sponsorship’s validity beginning in July 2018. The planned number of employees must be justified, and the Department of Home Affairs has the authority to stipulate a lower number of sponsorships if it believes it is necessary. Once the maximum has been reached, the employer must apply for a sponsorship variation in order to sponsor more employees.|
