Currently I’m working as a hospitality manager. Can you please help me to find if I’m eligible for any type of employee sponsored visa? If so what are my options?

Resume attached below.

Kind regards

Hi Y.,

Thank you for sending the resume.

Your occupation is eligible for a couple of visas. There are a lot of other factors like your age, English language skills, marital status and education that decide if you are eligible to apply.

The employer sponsored visa options are Subclass 482 visa and 494 visa.

Employer independant visa skilled visa options are Subclass 190 visa and Subclass 491 visa.

I’ve assumed that your role fits into the following occupation: Accommodation and Hospitality Managers nec

If you’ve not completed a diploma before your degree, then you are not eligible to apply right now. At least one year of experience post qualification is required for skills assessment. You will be eligible for skills assessment next year if you have studied hospitality management subjects in your degree studies. The occupation is in STSOL, hence the eligibility in the above-mentioned visas.

I would suggest a complete consultation to check your eligibility as per your circumstances.

If you need further services from myself, please contact Amy at, and don’t forget to mention your question ID so that I can keep providing immigration services to you.
