Becoming a Standard Business Sponsor is usually the most difficult hurdle for most businesses. You see all the forms and they look easy enough. You fill out the application online and think that was simple. Two weeks later you get a 6 page email for the Department of Home Affairs wanting to know every tiny detail about your business.
At Edupi, we have helped 100’s of businesses become sponsors. We know exactly what the DOHA are going to ask of you and help you get the essential information collated so your application is rock solid.
The major hurdle for a lot of businesses when becoming a sponsor is to prove they have tried to employ and advertised for staff locally without success. At Edupi, we know the challenges you face in finding high-quality chefs and hospitality staff. With the new TSS visa, you must provide evidence that you have attempted to fill your role with local staff (called Labour Market Testing) before being able to fill that position with an overseas chef.
We are able to work with you to ensure you meet the Labour Market Testing requirements to find the staff you need.
Once you are approved as a Sponsor you have obligations to meet through the life of your sponsorship. Edupi has systems in place to assist you here, with regular reminders and publications to ensure you are abreast of any changes that effect your sponsorship as well as solutions if you fall a little behind.
We will alert you when your employees meet certain milestones and ensure that your obligations as a sponsor are met every time.
