Can we go whilst awaiting 457 visa?

Recommended Posts

We are hoping to move on a 457 visa if we can secure a sponsorship for my wife(pediatric nurse). Through an agent we have started the visa process whilst we await a confirmed job/sponsor offer. We would be keen to get to Oz ASAP so are looking at going on a longterm holiday until we get sponsorship and visa through. I know we would have to leave the country to submit the visa. Is this idea possible??

Many Thanks

Am not an expert on Visa's but I dont think you are supposed to be looking for work when you are on a tourist visa

Pertsonally I woudn't do it. I think it is quite risky in having to be outside Australia when the visa is granted and even if you have to travel to New Zealand, it would be more hassle and expense. If I were you I would just be patient and wait until your visa is approved. You should be able to delay the employers for say 6 weeks to have a break and it is worthwhile having a holiday before you start work.
