Subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa

Strategic Migration advises, assists, manages and maintains the visa status for Subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa holders in the following ways:


  1. in the compliance with visa conditions and risk management of visa status;

  2. to add their married or de-facto spouse or other dependent family member(s) as a secondary visa holder – this would necessitate a separate secondary Subclass 482  (Temporary Skill Shortage) Visa Application;

  3. transfer the employer sponsorship of their Subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa to a new employer sponsor – this would necessitate a Position Nomination Application and possibly a new Subclass 482 (Temporary Skill Shortage) Visa and / or new Standard Business Sponsorship Application;

  4. renew the visa of Subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa holders by applying for the new Subclass 482 (Temporary Skill Shortage) Visa;

  5. transition to Australian Permanent Residence via the Employer Nomination Scheme, Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme, General Skilled Migration, Partner Visa or Distinguished Talent Visa
