Employer Sponsored Workers

Edupi is a Hospitality Immigration Specialist consultancy with a primary focus on recruitment and placement of qualified chefs from overseas. Since 2006 we have worked closely with Australia’s top hospitality venues helping them recruit and retain high-quality overseas staff.


The process of management and application of employer-sponsored workers requires specific hospitality industry expertise. The Department of Home Affairs (DOHA) has very specific requirements for temporary and permanent visa applications. Including the manner applications are submitted and the evidence that accompanies them.


As a hospitality venue grows, it has a greater reliance on managerial staff and of course qualified and experienced chefs. The department often has difficulty in understanding the difference between a cook and a chef, and why your business might need more than one restaurant manager.


As a migration agent that specialises in the hospitality industry, we understand the challenges you have and the need for us to manage the process for you. We have refined systems and procedures to ensure your applications are lodged on time, with all supporting documentation. This ensures limited requests from the DOHA. Our systems also remove as much communication during the process as you are comfortable with, so you can get on with running your business.


If you’d like more information about how to sponsor your staff, get in touch with one of our experienced migration agents today.
