Starting a business - is it possible...

If I am not mistaken the 457 sponsorship ties you to your sponsor ....

I am not a migration expert, but we too are on 457 and my partner is not allowed to undertake any private work as part of his contract.

I have pasted a link hope it helps.

Good luck, it is like a minefield out there looking for the relevant information.

No doubt one of the PIO migration experts will be along shortly to offer advice and information.

If you are not the main person (i.e the sponsored one) then as a dependant you have full work rights, and that includes starting a business.


I was the dependant (spouse) on a 457 and started my own small business as a sole trader. There was no trouble in registering an abn or anything.


If you need any other info about starting a small business, please pm me.
