If you want to live and work in Australia, then a 457 visa is a good option for you. This allows you to work for as long as four years in your chosen profession, if it is on the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s (DIBP) Skilled Occupation List. If you want this kind of visa, however, then you need to be sponsored by a business for your entire visa’s duration.
How do you go about getting sponsored by a business?
If you want this kind of visa, before you send in your application, you have to have a potential employer willing and able to nominate you. They can only apply to sponsor an immigrant to Australia if they can show that they were unable to find Australian citizens and residents who could do the work. They also have to lodge their application with the DIBP. Our company helps Australian businesses meet their quotas for skilled employees.
After you receive sponsorship, what happens next?
Once you’ve been granted a sponsorship from an Australian business, your visa application process may continue. The next step is to get the documents ready and go through the entire process as usual. The legislation for this type of visa can change every now and then. That can make it tricky to get through the process. You may be able to lodge your application entirely online, but your best bet is to get help from a migration agent.
What will the visa offer you?
If you have a 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa, then you will be allowed to both live and work within Australia for as long as four years. Your family may be able to be included in the application for the visa. That will also allow them to work in Australia, and they maybe able to study as well. Furthermore, this kind of visa lets you enter and exit Australia at will, so you can see your family back home as often as you like.
Why is it a good idea to have a migration agent help you?
Migration agents are all required to be registered with the Migration Agents Registration Authority. They have to undergo a screening to make sure their character is up to par. They also need to prove they have skills required to be help you through the immigration process. If you are planning to apply for a 457 visa, then you should contact our agents today.
