    Accountant- 457 to 186

    I am general accountant, currently under 457 visa and completed 2 years with the employer and still working. My employer is willing to sponsor for 186 visa but unfortunately his annual turnover is less than 1 million. There is caveat for accountant that annual turnover should be over 1 million. But this caveat was not before and I was approved 457 visa without turnover of 1 million. So can you please recommend me if I am eligible to apply for 186? Thank you

    Unfair dismissal

    I returned to Scotland for my fathers funeral 4 weeks ago. I returned back in Melbourne 2 weeks ago to get fired from my sponsor who says I never followed procedure. I had 2 days bereavement 1 week med cert and 10 days carers leave so I came home early with my mother to care for her here and get back to work to avoid losing my job. Is there anyone who knows if this is legal
  3. Hi. My 457 transfer has been approved but during that time I decided to stay at my current employer. I've only just found out it was approved before I could withdrawal. What do I do?
  4. Hi there, Further to a question many answered the other day. I am on a 457 visa, which runs out on the 19th September 2019. I am about to submit my partner visa and have questions about what bridging visa I would move on to. Had a look online and there doesn't seem to be a lot of information about this scenario. Some say that I would be on the same conditions as my work visa, even though that would have expired and that I would therefore have to stay with the same employer. Is that the case? Does anyone else have any similar experience to my situation as I'm kinda feeling like a unicorn at the moment - surely others have come on a 457, fallen in love and then applied for the partner visa to stay? All input would be gratefully received! Cheers
  5. Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone could help? I'm currently on a 457 visa, which runs out in September 2019. I am just about to lodge my defacto partner visa application forms - no issues with that as we've been together for 3 years and are now married etc. However, I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge or had been in a similar situation. I really hate where I work and would love it if I could lodge my application, get the bridging visa, cancel my 457 and quit my place to find another job - all without having to leave the country. So - does anyone know if it is possible to request that your current 457 visa be cancelled and then go straight on to the bridging visa, whilst our partner visa application is processed? Otherwise I will just have to wait until my 457 runs out and then the bridging visa kicks in - not the end of the world but still a pain as this place is drinking me to drink! Thanks in advance
  6. I hope someone can help me... I am on a 457 visa, British, have not applied for PR. Do I need to pay the Medicare levy (not surcharge, I am under the threshold anyway)? I was under the assumption I do not and have completed my tax return each year to say so. But then I get a letter from ATO saying my tax return is incorrect. I am very confused and worried all my tax return refunds will be taken back. This website indicates I may be able to apply for an exemption under the temporary visa / reciprocal health agreement - https://www.humanservices.gov.au/individuals/services/medicare/medicare-entitlement-statement Can any one help me with this?
  7. Hi, I am holding a 457 visa and my employer terminated me. They have informed the Department about my last day of employment but did not request for cancellation as I was hoping to find next sponsorship. Subsequently, I lodged a 190 PR application within 60 days of last day of employment and I am granted a Bridging Visa A but NOT ACTIVE. This is because my 457 visa is still valid. Question 1: If I cancel my 457 visa, then the Bridging Visa A will be activated, is that right? Question 2: How do I cancel my 457 visa? Must I leave the country in order to do that? Thank you! Regards, Tzen
  8. Hi everyone, My employer is intending to sell their business while I'm on a 457 (issued 18 April 2016) and I currently have a 189 application in progress. I'm hoping some kind person might have some advice for me. I applied for a 189 visa on 12 November 2018 and was issued with a (currently inactive) BV-A. My employer has informed me of their intention to sell their company before the end of the year, and my visa will have to be transferred as the company will be merge with another (change of ABN etc). There are two potential scenarios: The new employer transfers my current 457 visa to their business Will this have any implications for my 189 visa application? What if, for example, my residency is approved prior to the 457 transfer finalisation? Will I lose my residency and be placed back on a 457?! The new employer decides not to nominate me and my 457 is cancelled Will I move onto the currently inactive BV-A or will that be cancelled too? If it is also cancelled, is there a way for me to continue to stay in Australia and work while the 189 application is in progress? Are there any implications here for my citizenship eligibility? Sorry - heaps of questions but this seems like a bit of a mine field so I'd appreciate any guidance. Thanks in advance, RV

    457 to 482

    Hi, my 457 was granted in December 2016 and valid until December 2020. I recently changed employer - still doing the same job. My new employer has put me on a 482 as the 457 is now redundant. However because of this I have lost 6 months of my original end date of December 2020. I want to know what grandfather rules are in place to honour my original 457???
  10. Hi, I'm on a 457 visa since September 2017 and my work is becoming intolerable to the extent where I want to resign every day. My partner is Australian and we have been together for 6 years, having moved last year. We chose the 457 option due to costs involved in the partner visa, as well as it taking longer to be granted. We would like to move to a partner visa now, however my understanding is that if I apply, any bridging visa would get annulled if I resign from my job - is this correct? What would happen if I resign from my job and THEN apply for a partner visa? Can I do this onshore on say, a tourist visa? How likely would I be granted a bridging visa in this case? My other option is to transfer to another job which is what I am working on at the moment. However now that we have some savings and we know that we like our life here, the freedom of a partner visa would be preferred if there's a way to do that! Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi guys, Been trying to get advice everywhere but unable to find any due to the complications of it! I went onto my partners Visa back in 2015 as a secondary applicant to a 457 Visa. We since broke up at the end of last year and he allowed me a couple of months to see if we could sort it out or find my own visa. I found that my work would sponsor me which they did in February of this year. On my application i have put that i am separated from my EX and i also received a bridging Visa notification. I have since met someone new, and unfortunately i have been made redundant (in unfair circumstances) from my job. So i was looking to go onto my new partners 457 Visa as a secondary applicant again, however upon checking even though i have been given a bridging visa and stated on the form i was separated i am still currently on my ex partners visa (As the 457 visa through my work hasn't been granted yet after 8 months of waiting)! Therefore i cant prove the time of the relationship with my new partner as in the eyes of immigration i am still with the old one! Is there anyway they can back date the separation? Or what other visas can i go on until i can go on my partners new visa? Any help of options would be greatly appreciated!
  12. Per 10 Sept 2018, Vic has announced that 457 visa pathway to 190 has been removed. I hold 457 visa and have 3 years exp in Australia. But currently, my application is still under skill assessment. Does anyone have the same problem? I currently only have 65 points. So this pathway was really helpful and really... I feel desperate now I don't think as a software engineer with 65 points is enough :-(

    Direct entry

    Hi may i know what are the requirements of direct entry. I have workked 2 years with the same employer.can i apply direct entry stream.
  14. Hi we have applied for visa 457 renewal in nov 2017. Medical done in July 2018 still awaiting the visa. Anyone in same situation. Or any idea what’s the process time.
  15. Hi all, I'm brand new here - any advice would be really appreciated! My partner and I are on Bridging Visas, awaiting a decision on a 457 application (partner is main applicant, and I am de facto). We lodged the application back in January, and at the time were told to expect an answer in 6 months. Coming up to 10 months later, we still haven't heard any news.... I'm pregnant and due to give birth at the end of November, and can only travel up to 36 weeks (around the end of October). We know that if the visa is refused, we'll have 28 days to pack up and leave. We also spent a whole lotta $$$$ on the visa application, and don't want to throw that away because of being impatient. I guess my main questions are: Is it normal for 457 applications to take this long? Has anyone been in a similar situation? And, would you continue to wait for an answer re the approval, or would you head back to the UK before the baby is born?

    Bridging visa B

    Hi, I'm awaiting for my PR to come, and the visa I applied from was a 457 to a 187 (business sponsored visa). I would like to go on holiday, however I will be on my bridging visa A at this point and would like to know what the chances of getting granted a bridging visa B and can you get this until your PR arrives so you can leave the country on multiple occasions. Thanks in advance. Ben

    Travelling on a 457 visa

    Hi, I've been on a 457 visa for almost 2 years now. I would really like to go back home for 2 or 3 months. Probably would be on holidays for 3 or 4 weeks and the rest working from there for my employer in Australia. My migration agent has told me that leaving the country for more than 4 consecutive weeks could be risky and ignite questions from immigration. Does anyone have any experience in this? Immigration website is quite vague, just says that I can travel in and out of Australia as much as I want and that if I cease work with my employer for more than 90 consecutive days my visa will be cancelled. I work on the computer and my boss is cool with me being out of the office for a couple of months, as she understands how homesick I am and how important it is for me to be with my family. SO I wouldn't be ceasing employment. I have already done this about a year and a half ago. Back then I had no idea I was taking any risk, and when I got back I got asked a lot of questions by immigration at the airport, but they eventually let me through and that was the end of it. I am aware though that immigration seems to be getting more and more complicated, and that they might be on the lookout for excuses to get people out. If anyone has had any similar experiences I would appreciate you sharing :) Thanks!
  18. Hi, I am de facto on my girlfriend's 457 visa. She is sponsored by her company but hates her job and wants to quit. Meanwhile my company are willing to sponsor me on a 482 visa and she could then become de facto on my visa so she can change jobs without any visa restrictions. I have been working for my company for 10 months. Does anyone have any experience of that switch? Do my company have to carry out labour market testing (LMT) even though I've been in the role for 10 months already? Is there anything else we should consider? Thanks for your help.
  19. Hi folks,please accept my upfront apologies if this is a repeat request, I couldn't find anything similar to my situation from any of the recent posts. Situation:I am currently employed as an ICT Business Analyst with a large firm on a 457 that was issued in August 2016. For number of reasons, I am looking to change jobs, and the new offer is for a Management Consultant role with a different firm. My question is, can my new employer simply transfer the sponsorship of my existing 457 on a different occupation? If yes, will this entail submitting a new nomination?Many thanks in advance!

    Sydney vs Melbourne on 457

    Anybody would like to weigh in on my pro/con list? Coming over from NY on husband's secondment. He works in risk/banking. I work as a private chef. We have 2 kids and would have to pay 11k year in school fees on the 457 for NSW Planning on downsizing tremendously so Ok with a small apt. Are the Sydney beaches/lifestyle/weather worth the school fees or should we just plan on Melbourne and save ourselves 11K year. I'm sure I could easily make those school fees up by freelancing myself - My daughter is worried about not nice beaches in Melbourne and overcrowded beaches in Sydney. Perth is unfortunately not an option right now. Husband would probably have more growth and interest in Sydney... He's Scottish and I'm from California if that makes a difference - he also currently has over an hour train commute now and would like an easier commute.. thanks!
  21. I’ve just been granted a 457 visa. Due to the delay in visa processing the timing has meant presently there is a shortfall in work in the office I was meant to start in. The job offer hasn’t been rescinded yet but I’m not sure where I stand. I’m working in the UK for the same company, although different division. I cant even check my visa conditions as my company submitted the application. Question: 1. Is there a time limit on starting the new job in Australia or can I wait it out until things pick up? 2. Can I transfer the visa to another company in Australia before I travel and start work for the nominated company? Any help appreciated!

    457 Visa nomination expired

    Hello all I was nominated and applied for 457 visa and got an email that company nomination has been expired. So, I didn't get any approve/reject for a visa, just sentence that they can't future process my request coz it made more than 12 months ago and the nomination has been expired and my request can't be applied to another nomination. How it's possible? What can I do in this case?
