Labor Agreements allow businesses to sponsor a specified number of skilled workers from overseas.

They are different from Employer Nomination Scheme and Temporary Business (Long Stay) schemes in that a labor Agreement enables companies to nominate occupations that are not on the lists of approved occupations. The nominated occupation must be identified as a being in shortage or as being an emerging labor market shortage in Australia.

If your company would like to sponsor a lot of workers from overseas, this agreement may be the best for you.

Labor Agreements generally take a long time to process as they require dealing with various government bodies. We can deal with the government bodies on your behalf and negotiate formal arrangements between the employer, the Australian government and/or an industrial associations.
