Fee Free Visa Application

You may be eligible to make a fee-free application for an offshore Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS), Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) or Labour Agreement (LA) visa, as specified below, if an employer
has lodged an employer nomination specifying you as the nominee and you have a valid visa application for any of the following visas: 

• Skilled - Independent (subclass 175)
• Skilled - Sponsored (subclass 176).

If you are eligible, you will need to complete form 47ES Application for employer sponsored migration but you do not have to pay another application charge. You can lodge the ENS, RSMS or LA visa application if you are in or outside Australia, but you must beoutside Australia before the visa can be granted. Further information on eligibility for fee-free applications can be found in booklet 5 Employer Sponsored Migration, or on the department’s website
