We have on our database NT employers who are willing to provide employer nomination for employees who need a working visa and have plans to gain permanent residence in Australia. Usually employees will have to work for such an employer for 3 years before transition to permanent residence. The Employer/Sponsor will normally pay for the cost of the visa application but sometimes it is expected that the employee will pay a portion of the visa process while the employer pays for the SBS approval.
