remote work

can u let me know, whether on the visa 190 for Western Australia, would the remote work count as a "Contract of employment"?

WA states on their website services/ skilled-migration-wa/ how-to-apply-for-state-nomination

Migration WA - How to apply for State nomination

If you are invited to make an application for State nomination from Western Australia you may require a contract of employment. This is a requirement for​ those who have an occupation on Schedule 2 of the WASMOL, those living in an Australian State or territory other than Western Australia and those who have a restricted preferred region.

The contract must meet all of the following conditions:
be in your nominated, or closely related occupation;
be based in Western Australia, for visa subclass 489 this must be in an area outside of Perth and surrounding areas;
be for at least one year (unless permanent);
show compensation and benefits;
have the name of the employee and the employer;
have a job description; and
be full time (a minimum of 35 hours a week).

You may provide two employment contracts which equal at least 35 hours of work per week.


I found an employer from another State, who is willing to give me a contract and they accept remote work (IT Sector). Would this be enough for WA authorities or i really need to find an employer with HQ in WA, which might not be very easy, since all tech companies are usually based in the US or east coast in case of Oz.

please advise asap.
