Applying for Permanent Employer Sponsored or Nominated Visa 186

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

I'm trying to find out some information on applying for PR, I'm currently on a 457 via and now allowed to apply for a 186 Visa, 

If there are any good posts in this forum please point them out as I can't find them and hate to be that person which posts up a topic which has already been spoken about, 

My company is allowing me to apply for PR, the visa is called Permanent Employer Sponsored or Nominated Visa 186 on the ImmiAccount website, 

I will be applying for the visa by myself and not going through an agency, but the agency is working with my company on their end for the process, 

I'm just trying to find the documentation I need to gather or advice to get my application in place,

So far this is the information I need to gather

Medical Examination (X-Ray, AIDS, etc) has to be completed by Bupa
A criminal background check by Australian Police Service
A criminal background check by home country Police Service 
Identity Documents (passport, driving license)

Skills and qualifications (degree papers)

CV, employer references

ID (scanned photos, bankstatments)

I'm under 40 and single, Britsh so I believe the rest of the requirements don't matter for me (such as English language documents, partner, dependents, etc)   

Is there anything I am missing or advice I might need?

I would appreciate any help, 

Please let me know if you have any questions if I have made a mistake,

All I can add is;

  1. Your profession must still be on the listed/approved skills list.
  2. You must also get a formal independant skills assessment report and score, regardless of your qualifications or institution.




Makes me sick, in the fact that I must include a disclaimer. All opinions, advice and comments expressed by me are of my own personal opinion, and not that of a Immigration Agent, Lawyer, or related professional. They are given in the spirit intended, as an independant contributor, to a public forum. No implied, or expressed guarantee or undertaking as to accuracy or relevance is given.

Thanks a lot, AussieDude, 

I will look into the skills assessment report as not sure where to get this done, I wasn't under the impression I had to get this as I have A levels and a degree in IT but thanks for the heads up. 

My profession is still on the skills list as I work in IT, 

Thanks man!

Hi All,

I am also trying to apply for 186 Direct Entry stream.

Right now I am on dependent student visa (500) and working in a company. Now, I have convinced my employer to nominate me so that I can apply for 186 visa. But I need to tell them how to apply ( required docs and process). I have gone through the requirements but not sure how to prove AMSR as I have a unique use case.

I have joined this new company with a lower salary ( more than TSMIT ) than my previous company with exchange of additional % of product equity.

Can someone suggest what can I do in this situation ?
