Nomination is the process of identifying a position to be filled by an overseas skilled worker in a business. Depending on the visa type and stream and the desired occupation, you may need to be approved as a sponsor or you may need to have negotiated a labour agreement with the Department.
Employers using the labour agreements can only nominate overseas workers in occupations specified in their
labour agreement. Skilled Occupation Lists exist for other visa types and streams that limit what occupations can be specified in a nomination
Before you submit a nomination you must conduct labour market testing and meet salary and employment requirements.
There are also other nomination requirements you need to meet depending on the
visa you choose.
