Becoming An Australian Sponsor
To sponsor temporary residents to Australia, the first step is for your business to become a Standard Business Sponsor (SBS).
A SBS for an overseas business or an Australian business is valid for 3 years and permits you to sponsor an unlimited number
of employees during this period.
To become a sponsor your company or business must:â€¨
- Be a lawful, operating business.
- Have the financial ability to meet itsÂ sponsorship obligations
- Meet certain training benchmarks
âœ” Provide you with your own communication portal
âœ” Provide a detailed Checklist and Information Sheets
âœ” Understand your requirements
âœ” Partner with you & step your business through the process
âœ” Ensure that only correct and complete information is lodged with DIBP
âœ” Complete the forms and submissions.
âœ” Follow through to visa decision
âœ” Reduce your stress
Once you have your SBS, ASM will complete the next two steps of the visa process -the Nomination and Visa applications.
DIBP has institutedÂ Monitoring for Sponsors. This can be difficult and time consuming. ASM will assist your company by utilising information retained on file about your business and your visa holders.
