How do I become a sponsor?

There are two ways you can become an approved sponsor:

  • apply to be a standard business sponsor
  • negotiate a labour agreement.

The standard business sponsorship arrangement is the most common way to sponsor a skilled worker.

Refer to the relevant visa for details on how to apply to be a standard business sponsor.
