Business Sponsorship Compliance


Australia’s migration program is increasingly focused on enforcing regulatory compliance among businesses that employ or sponsor migrant workers. The Department of Home Affairs (DOHA) has the authority to conduct audits and monitor adherence to sponsorship obligations. Failure to comply with these obligations can lead to various sanctions under the Migration Act 1958.

We not only assist with business sponsor applications but also collaborate with businesses to ensure that your business adheres to the requirements set by the department. We assist to:

  • Navigate the intricate regulatory environment and ensure compliance with Australia’s immigration legislation.
  • Evaluate your immigration program and your workforce (migrant employees).
  • Facilitate the recruitment and retention of your migrant workforce.
  • Provide up-to-date legal information and immigration news.
  • Offer clear, timely communication and advice.
  • Collaborate with a team of dedicated immigration experts with industry-specific expertise who understand your business.
  • Utilise immigration opportunities that promote business growth.

We offer assistance in managing your immigration compliance and reviewing your company’s sponsorship obligations and statutory notifications.

Conducting random checks on your foreign employee population, examining factors such as employment contracts, adherence to immigration-specific employment terms, suitability of nominated occupations, alignment of nomination details, and timely submission of notifications.

Over the past decade, there has been a stricter focus on sponsorship compliance, affecting the immigration advice industry, Australian companies, and skilled foreign workers. Consequently, we have observed a significant rise in audits conducted by the Immigration Department, resulting in penalties and fines.
