457 Business Sponsorship Visas

The 457 visa is a quick and cost-effective way of obtaining a work permit for your employee to work in Australia.

It results in a 4-year temporary work visa, and can either be renewed after this period, or the employee can look at applying for permanent residence through the ENS or RSMS programs.

There are three stages in obtaining a 457 visa:

1. Sponsorship Approval

Most employers based in Australia will apply for a Standard Business Sponsorship. However, it is also possible for overseas businesses to obtain approval as a business sponsor. Where the circumstances do not meet the usual 457 requirements, it is also possible to negotiate a Labour Agreement with the Department of Immigration.

2. Nomination

Employers must obtain approval for an overseas employee to fill a position in Australia – the position must meet certain requirements in terms of occupation and salary level.

3. 457 Visa Application

Finally, the employee must lodge an application for a 457 visa and show that they have the required qualifications and work experience for the position.

It is important that employers understand their sponsorship obligations when using the 457 program, as otherwise they can be fined or barred from sponsoring.
