Visa Entitlements


The exact entitlements depend upon whether the visa subclass is migration/permanent residency or temporary residency.

Temporary Work (Skilled) Subclass 457 Visa

The 457 visa is granted with restricted work rights, preventing the holder from seeking employment with an employer other than the visa sponsor and thus means the visa applicant is in some sense reliant on a particular employer’s sponsorship. The Work Limitation Condition 8107 attached to the 457 Visa also prevents the visa holder from working for oneself.

Temporary Residents are generally not entitled to Medicare, nor government-funded education or social security benefits. In addition to purchase property in Australia temporary residents must also gain approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB)

Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) Subclass 186 Visa

Permanent residents are able to live, work and study in Australia indefinitely. In addition they are entitled to public health care administered through the Australian federal Government’s Medicare scheme. Children permanent residents aged 6-18 years can attend Australian public (government-funded) schools and pay the same fees as other students. Dependent children aged over 18 years may be entitled to attend Australian tertiary institutions and pay only the fees applicable to local students as opposed to the higher fees charged to international students.

Generally for permanent residents there is a 2-year waiting period for social security payments, including sickness and unemployment benefits.

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) Subclass 187 Visa

The RSMS Subclass 187 Visa enjoys the same rights as for the ENS Subclass 186 Visa however the main difference is that there are visa cancellation provisions for visa holders who do not make a reasonable attempt to remain employed in the regional area (not necessarily with the nominating employer) for the 2 year period after the visa grant date.
