Labour Market Testing

What is Labour Market Testing?

Labour Market Testing (LMT) is the process whereby the Employer assesses (tests) the availability of candidates related to their potential Migrant Employee’s nominated role, prior to pursuing the Sponsorship of a Visa for a new Migrant Employee. The Department places an understandable ‘burden of proof’ on the prospective Employer, to show that the opportunities being afforded to a new Migrant could not already be granted to an existing Permanent Resident, or Australian Citizen. This service is available for all relevant immigration visa subclasses, including the highly popular subclass 482 TSS, subclass 186DE, and subclass 494 Regional Sponsored visas.
