Compliance with Standard Business Sponsorship Obligations


The Department of Home Affairs (DoHA) may monitor your compliance with your sponsor obligations during and after the period of your sponsorship. 

If you do not meet your Sponsorship obligations, DoHA could take one or more of the following types of  actions:

  • Administrative Actions, and/or 

  • ​Enforceable Undertakings,  and/or

  • ​Civil

Civil penalties are quite severe and any of the possible remedial actions have the potential to impact detrimentally on your business. If properly managed, the risk associated with sponsoring an employee can be mitigated.

Australian National Visa Service are available to review your compliance with sponsorship obligations and to objectively report on whether these are in accordance with legislation or whether there are process improvements that can be effected. Alternatively, we are available to consult so as to appraise your personnel on their  Sponsorship obligations.
