    Transferring a 457

    So my to be new employer contacted me today. Informed me that they have been re-approved to be a sponsor and that they have nominated to take over my 457..(brilliant) something of concern is.... If/when my transfer is complete do I then hand my notice in for my previous employer? Or do I have to cease employment immediately.. I don't want to hand in my notice yet as there is no guarantee that It will all be approved.

    Transferring a 457

    Thank you for your reply. There are a Couple of reasons I no longer wish to stay on for my current employer. But I would rather not get into that on a viewable website. I have over 3 years experience in drilling. 2.5 years in Australia. What are my options? I'm pretty clueless when it comes to the PR routes etc

    Transferring a 457

    Okay.. So I sort of understand. But again I've been on my current visa for coming up 2 years? So just being a transfer of employer should be straight forward?? Basically I'm worried that if the transfer gets declined, will this effect my current employment with my current company. I'm not lodging a new visa application as a driller so if it is no longer on the skills shortage list this shouldn't be effected? I have my family here and I just don't want it all to go pear shaped. Thank you

    Transferring a 457

    Hi, I've been offered a new position in a new company with the transfer of my 457. Better money, better roster and an all round better company. I've been on my 457 for nearly 2 years (driller) is it a straight forward process to transfer? The HR are dealing with it but I was just wondering on what sort of time frame. The company's approval to be a sponsor had just ran out so they have re-applied and I'm guessing that has to be complete before my nominated transfer can be applied for.. Any help will be great. Thanks
