Temporary Employer Sponsored Visa Options

  • 457 Temporary Work (Skilled)
  • 400 Temporary Work Short Stay
  • 407 Training
  • 408 Temporary Activity

The Temporary Work (Skilled) (subclass 457) visa enables eligible employers to address short-to-medium-term skill shortages in their business that cannot be filled from the local labour market.  The subclass 457 visa programme is the most commonly used Australian visa programme to sponsor overseas skilled workers on a temporary basis.    457 visas may be granted for a stay of up to 4 years.

The Permanent Employer Sponsored Programme consists of the following:

  • 186 Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS)
  • 187 Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS)

The programme allows employers to nominate foreign workers for permanent residence to fill genuine vacancies in their business.

Within each of these visa subclasses there will be three streams:

  • The temporary residence transition stream is for subclass 457 visa holders who have worked for their employer for at least the last two years in the nominated occupation and that employer wants to offer them a permanent position in that same occupation.  The position must be available for a minimum of 2 years after the date of visa grant.
  • The direct entry stream is for applicants who have not held a subclass 457 visa for at least the last two years.   Applicants may be inside or outside Australia
  • The agreement stream is for applicants who are being sponsored by an employer through a tailored and negotiated labour agreement or regional migration agreement.
