Labour Agreements allow overseas workers to be sponsored in occupations and industries which are not available under the sponsored employer visa programs. Labour Agreements are between the Australian Government (administered by Immigration, Department of Home Affairs) and employers. They have a validity period for 5 years.

Labour Agreements replace the Standard Business Sponsorship under the Subclass 482 program and Subclass 494 program. For the 482 and 494 visas, the nomination and visa application still has to be lodged. It is also available for the subclass 186 program, where the Labour Agreement replaces the nomination application.

Please note there are other requirements to meet as well. But these are the baseline requirements.
