Delivered

Dear Department of Home Affairs,

I saw this page on the Home Affairs website which mentions accredited sponsors:
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/em...

1] I would like to know if it's possible to get a list of all such accredited sponsors as on 1st June 2020 for Australia since it is publicly available for countries like NZ (refer : https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zeal... )
Some companies such as a Wallan are publicly sharing their 'Accredited Sponsor' status on Job Ads (refer : http://nvcltd.applynow.net.au/jobs/NVC90... which leads me to assume that this information can be made publicly available.

2] Also, is it possible to get a list of Sponsors & no of visas supported by them for approximately the last 3.5 years (1st January 2017 to 1st June 2020) who have supported workers through the 186 (under Employer Nomination Scheme visa (subclass 186) Direct Entry stream) and 482 (under Temporary Skill Shortage visa (subclass 482) Medium-term stream) schemes for all occupations under ANZSCO UNIT GROUP 2613 ?

Thanks,
Ravi

Some companies such as a Wallan are publicly sharing their 'Accredited

leads me to assume that this information can be made publicly available.

by them for approximately the last 3.5 years (1st January 2017 to 1st June
2020) who have supported workers through the 186 (under Employer
