Subclass 457 Temporary Work Visa

Who is the Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa Subclass 457 for?

This visa allows skilled international workers and their families to live and work in Australia for an approved business for a period between two to four  years in occupations that on the list of eligible skilled occupations

 

A business will be able to sponsor someone for this visa if they cannot find an Australian citizen or permanent resident to fill the skilled position at their workplace. Employers may be either Australian businesses or overseas businesses.

 

A three-step process is involved in applying for a 457 visa– a sponsorship by an eligible business, nomination by an eligible occupation, and a visa application.

 

Who can sponsor me?

To be an approved to sponsor a worker, you may be a standard business sponsor or negotiate a labour agreement with the Australian Government. In either circumstance, you must show that your business is a lawfully operating business and there is no relevant adverse information against your business.

 

To apply to be a standard business sponsor, you must first lodge an application to become a sponsor under this option. Please note that under this option you can only hold one standard sponsorship at any time which is valid for five years, however, you may extend this sponsorship through lodging a variation application. There are also additional requirements depending on your businesses location in which you must meet.

 

If your business is inside of Australia, you must make a written statement declaring that you will not engage in discriminatory recruitment practices and you have a strong record of employing local labour. You are also required to meet training requirements by either meeting the training benchmarks (if you have traded in Australia for a period of longer than 12 months) or have an auditable plan to meet the training benchmarks (if you have been trading in Australia for less than 12 months).

 

If you are operating a business outside of Australia, you must demonstrate that you are seeking to employ a skilled worker to either establish business operations in Australia or fulfil contract obligations in Australia.

 

When you apply to be a standard sponsor or vary an existing sponsorship agreement, you may find that you qualify for an accredited status. This will grant you additional benefits such as:

  • An increased sponsorship period of six years
  • Priority processing of all nomination and visa applications
  • Streamlined processing for nomination applications where the nominated base salary is equal to or greater than either:
    • The Fair Work High Income Threshold and the occupation is classified as skill level 1 or 2 in the ANZSCO; or
    • $ 75,000 and the occupation is classified as skill level 1 or 2 in the ANZSCO (occupation exception apply)

 

Alternatively, if you are applying to be a sponsor under a negotiated labour agreement, it is necessary for you to provide evidence that there is a genuine and systematic shortage of skilled workers, there are no suitably qualified Australian workers available, and you have a commitment to training Australians. When in place, you are only considered to be an approved sponsor for the length of the agreement and you are only allowed to nominate skilled international workers under the terms of the agreement. Please note that there are only certain circumstances in which you may be able to enter into a labour agreement and Results Migration will help you see if you and your applicant are eligible for this sponsorship option.

 

Am I Eligible for a 457 Visa?

In order to qualify for a 457 visa, you will need to demonstrate that you meet the following minimum eligibility requirements:

  • That you have been nominated by an approved sponsor in the nominated an occupation that is on the relevant skilled occupation list.
  • Obtained a suitable skills assessment for your nominated occupation
  • That you are younger than 45 years of age when you are invited to apply for this visa.
  • Hold any mandatory registration, license or professional membership, and or be fully assessed as a suitable applicant by the relevant body
  • You must have at least ‘competent’ English language ability at the time you are invited to apply (unless you are exempt from this condition)– you will need a score of at least 6 in each component of the IELTS, or equivalent score in any accepted English test.
  • Meet certain health and character requirements.
  • Have your own health insurance, as you will not be covered by Australia’s national health scheme (Medicare) unless your country has a reciprocal health care agreement with Australia.
  • Have no outstanding debts to the Australian Government

 

457 Checklist

 

How Long Does it Take?

Once received, the Department of Immigration will then commence processing your application. While the average global processing time is 75% of applications in 4 months, times may vary as an assessment of eligibility occurs on a case-by-case basis and vary on the applicant’s circumstances.

 

It is understandable that there are circumstances that impact the processing time of your visa applications which are out of your control. These include the time for external agencies, namely health and police services, and the Government to conduct checks and provide supporting information.

 

While the above circumstances are unavoidable, there are some factors which will ensure you a faster processing time. These include:

  • Lodging a complete application, attached with all of the necessary supporting documents.
  • Being prompt in responding to any additional information the Department requests.

 

Fees & Costs

The cost of the visa application is from $420. You will also be required to pay a nomination fee of $330 and a sponsorship fee which will be determined by the Department. Please note this is only the flat rate and you may be asked to pay additional costs to cover requirements such as health assessments, police certificates and biometrics.

 

If you wish to add additional family members to your application, an extra fee will be imposed upon your visa application.

 

What Steps Should I Take to apply for a 457 Visa?

Unlike other Migration law firms, Results Migration makes the process of applying for visas straightforward. A three-step process is involved in applying for a 457 visa– a sponsorship by an eligible business, nomination by of an eligible occupation, and a visa application. Our team of expert lawyers will work with both you and your employer every step of the way and has devised a step-by-step process to ensure your application is processed as fast as possible.

 

  1. Come in for a free consultation where our team of expert lawyers will assess and advise you on the Australian visa option that best suits your needs.

 

  1. At this stage, we will also gather and prepare all of the documentation as well as perform any additional checks that are required to lodge a visa application. This will include documents from your employer and also you as an applicant.

 

To be eligible for this visa, both you and your prospective employer will need to meet specific requirements for each stage of the three-step application process:

 

Step One – Sponsorship:

To be an eligible sponsor for the Temporary Work visa, the business must be able to show it:

  • Is an established and lawfully operating business;
  • Meets certain Australian training and workplace requirements (if you are an Australian business only);
  • Is compliant with the number of subclass 457 workers to be nominated;
  • Can demonstrate that it has a genuine commitment to employing local labour, and uses non-discriminatory recruitment practices; and
  • Has no relevant adverse information against the business.

 

Step Two – Nomination:

Only an approved business sponsor may nominate a skilled international worker(see Step One). The nomination process identifies the occupation needed to be filled by a worker for the business in Australia. To nominate a skilled international worker for a 457 visa, the approved business sponsor must:

  • Provide the name of the skilled international worker to be employed at the business;
  • Provide the state in which the skilled international worker will be employed;
  • Demonstrate that it meets direct employer requirements in Australia;
  • Provide employment terms and conditions that meet Australian workplace standards;
  • Meet the genuineness criterion set by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection;
  • Meet the Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold; and
  • Not be subject to any adverse information.

 

  1. We will then begin step three of the 457 process whereby we will then begin to prepare and then loge your application in a timely manner. This stage is where you, the skilled international worker, will need to demonstrate:
  • That you are sponsored by an employer to fill a genuine position;
  • That you have the relevant skills, qualifications and work experience which meets the nominated position;
  • That you will be eligible for any relevant licenses or registration required for the nominated position (where necessary);
  • That you possess vocational standards of the English language; and
  • That you will be paid at least the minimum salary level that applies at the time a decision is made on your Temporary Skilled work visa, and that the terms and conditions of your employment are consistent with the obligations in the Australian labour market.

 

In the meantime, if you are an onshore applicant you will be granted a bridging visa until your current visa expires. This will entitle you to the right to stay in Australia until the outcome of your 457 visa is decided.

 

  1. Finally we will notify you of the outcome. If granted, you will receive the rights listed below.

 

Entitlements of the Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa

The Temporary Work (Skilled) visa will allow you and your eligible family members:

  • To work in Australia for a defined period
    • Four years if your occupation is listed on the Combined list of eligible skilled occupations or due to international trade obligations
    • Two years if your occupation is not listed on the MLTSSL
  • To bring your family members to work and study in Australia, and
  • Travel in and out of Australia as many times as you want, while the visa is valid

 

457 Visa FAQs

Can I include my family members on my application?

The ENS allows you to add your partner and your children, stepchildren or your partner’s children or stepchildren to your visa application. You will need to provide evidence of their relationship to you in your application and they must meet the relevant health and character requirements.

 

Where do I have to be when I apply for my visa?

You can either be in or outside of Australia when you apply for a 186 visa. If you are in Australia however, you must hold a substantive or bridging visa.

 

Can I switch my 457 visa to a 190 visa?

Yes, it is possible to change your 457 visa to a 190 visa. Having worked in Australia, you will receive additional points towards your skill assessment. However, additional criteria may apply and a 190 visa is not available to all 457 visa holders.

 

What are your obligations under this visa?

You and your family members included on your application must comply with all of the visa conditions and Australian laws. If your child is born in Australia while you hold a 457 visa you must notify the Department in writing as they will then need to hold a 457 visa as well.

 

What occupations are eligible for a 457 visa?

Under a 457 visa you may apply for an occupation in either the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) or the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). The table below shows the Combined list of eligible skilled occupations and specifies whether the relevant occupation is included on MLTSSL or STSOL. Applicants for a subclass 457 visa should be aware that the maximum visa period available to you if your occupation is on the STSOL is two years unless a longer period is required to meet international trade obligations, and four years is the maximum period available if your occupation is on the MLTSSL.
