“Accredited” status has delivered many positive benefits for Business Sponsors. As a result of the broadening of the applicability criteria, and the flexible approach adopted by the Department of Home Affairs, many more clients are enjoying the benefits of streamlined documentation requirements and priority processing. The benefits have extended from temporary to permanent visa applications, with permanent residence applications lodged under the Employer Nomination Scheme being processed noticeably faster, if the employer has “accredited” status.
The Department has recently advised that there are approximately 47,000 Standard Business Sponsors, and approximately 2,600 Accredited Sponsors.
Ajuria Lawyers continues to encourage all businesses that are eligible to attain this “Gold Star” status with the Department.
