Australian or overseas businesses may sponsor and employ staff from other countries with this visa. The success of your visa application relies entirely upon your potential employer’s sponsorship. This visa is only available to people who work in occupations that appear on the skilled occupation list.
Employer-sponsored visas have grown in popularity as both the Australian Government and independent businesses have recognized the value of using foreign nationals to fill local labour shortages.
This visa will allow you to work in Australia for up to four years as well as bring your family to work or study in Australia.
The subclass 457 or 482 is a temporary visa that can lead to permanent residency via subclasses 186 or 187.
