Employing overseas workers

As an employer, if you want to hire an overseas worker, two options are available. You can employ a non-citizen who is already in Australia and has a valid visa that allows them to work. This could be an international student or someone on a working holiday visa. Alternatively, you can sponsor a skilled worker who either lives overseas or is temporarily in Australia. The Department of Home Affairs issues work visas for overseas workers and provides a step-by-step guide to help you hire someone with an Australian visa. If you are considering sponsoring an overseas worker, it is important to learn about the visa options and the associated costs. Our team at the API is ready to help you and your employee in finding the most suitable visa options.

As an employer, it is crucial to make sure that your employees are authorized to work in Australia. To verify their work rights, the free Visa Entitlement Verification Online service is available for use. Additionally, it is necessary to review the terms of their visas to identify any obligations you must fulfill as their employer. It is important to note that despite possessing work rights, non-citizens may still face restrictions on the nature and extent of work they can perform.

Labour market testing

If you are seeking to apply for certain visas in Australia, it is vital to know that you must demonstrate that you have attempted to recruit a local worker before opting for an overseas candidate. This process is commonly referred to as labour market testing, which involves advertising the job on Workforce Australia Online and at least two other job search websites or media. It is important to note that the procedures and standards of labour market testing may vary based on the specific visa category you are pursuing.
