Accreditation – 2021 Policy

As you might have heard there will be a big policy change taking place in mid 2021.

"How will this affect my business?" you might be wondering. Well this is the information that has been released so far.

How will you be able to sponsor your employees after the policy change?

Under this new policy, the process of sponsoring employees in need of work visas is expected to change considerably.

There will be 3 main steps to follow:

  • Employer Accreditation
  • Job Advertisement
  • Potential Employee Evaluation


Your company will NEED to receive ACCREDITATION in order for you to sponsor anyone from overseas.

This is a process that you will have to undertake regularly to keep the business running if you are sponsoring employees on work visas.

We are currently offering an ACCREDITATION MEMBERSHIP program for businesses that will renew your accreditation each year and will give your employees member rates when they apply for a new employer-assisted visa with us
