Temporary Business Long Stay Visa (457)

The 457 visa is used extensively by Australian businesses who wish to employ overseas workers on a temporary basis, from 3 months up to 4 years. The most popularly used is the visa based on a sponsorship by a Standard Business Sponsor (SBS).

As an employer you must:

  • Be actively and lawfully operating a business in Australia
  • Have a satisfactory record of compliance with Australian industrial relations and immigration laws
  • Be approved as an SBS
  • Agree to the stringent sponsorship obligations and a monitoring program by the Department of Immigration

As a nominee you must:

  • Have the skills and qualifications required for the position
  • Have the required level of English language competency
  • Comply with the mandatory visa condition that you will not change your occupation or employer whilst you are in Australia on that visa
