457 Working Visas

The subclass 457 visa program is designed to allow businesses to access skills that are not readily available in Australia. In order to obtain a 457 visa, there are three parts to the process:

-       Business Sponsorship

-       Position Nomination

-       Visa Application

457 visas are highly regulated and employers and visa applicants are recommended to use a Migration Agent to assist in the application. Milestone Migration has extensive experience in obtaining Business Sponsorship for employers and 457 visas for their employees.

Milestone will assist employers in obtaining their Standard Business Sponsorship which permits them to sponsor workers to enter Australia temporarily for work visas. Milestone will review evidence and provide extensive advice in relation to the submissions that are needed to be made to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection for approval of your application.

For each visa applicant, Milestone will work with the sponsoring employer on the nomination application. This application permits the specific position type to be filled by a 457 visa holder. With requirements including Market Salary Evidence and Labour Market Testing to be met by employers in their nomination application, it is critical to understand the criteria so that your Nomination application will be successful. From here, we attend to the requirements for the actual 457 visa application. Milestone makes sure all requirements are attended to prior to lodging to ensure the highest chance of a successful visa outcome.

Whether you are looking for your first 457 visa or if you are in Australia and needing to renew your 457 visa, Milestone Migration can help you every step of the way. We understand the requirements for the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and will provide easy to follow application forms and checklists to ensure the highest possible chance of success in your application.
