Providing the best quality trained chefs and students for the Australian Hospitality industry.

At PEVS, we have helped 100’s of businesses become sponsors. We know exactly what the DIBP are going to ask of you and help you get the essential information collated so your application is rock solid.

The major hurdle for a lot of businesses when becoming a sponsor is to prove they have tried to employ and advertised for staff locally without success.  At Pacific Visa, we know the challenges you face in finding high-quality chefs and hospitality staff. With the new TSS visa, you must provide evidence that you have attempted to fill your role with local staff (called Labour Market Testing) before being able to fill that position with an overseas chef.

We are able to work with you to ensure you meet the Labour Market Testing requirements to find the staff you need.

Type of Visa

Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (subclass 482)

This visa, referred to as the TSS visa, enables employers to address labour shortages by bringing in genuinely skilled workers where they cannot source an appropriately skilled Australian. It facilitates targeted use of overseas workers to address temporary skill shortages, while ensuring that Australian workers get priority.

Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186)

​This visa is a permanent residence visa for skilled workers. It allows you to work in Australia.

Regional Sponsered Migration Scheme Visa (subclass 187)

This visa is a permanent residence visa for skilled workers who want to work in regional Australia.

Training Visa (subclass 407)

This visa allows you to:

  • take part in workplace-based training to enhance your skills in your current occupation, area of tertiary study, field of expertise
  • participate in a professional development training program in Australia.

This visa is not appropriate for persons whose sole intention is to work.
