457 visa information updated


On 19 April 2017 the federal government made substantial changes to the 457 visa programme.

We have updated our 457 fact sheet in line with these announcements, clearly indicating what has changed.

Updated July 2017 Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457) allows employers to sponsor approved skilled workers
to work in Australia on a temporary 
visa for up to four years. A business can sponsor someone for this visa if they cannot
find an Australian citizen or permanent resident to do the skilled work.

Further information about the 457 visa is available at the Dept of Immigration and Border Control
