RSMS - Changing Employer

Recommended Posts

Guest kjohsnt

I was wondering if anyone knew if when changing employer during the initial 2yrs of a RSMS (used to be 857) visa if the new employer needs to go through the nomination approval process etc? My current employer has said that we will have to let immigration know, even though the RSMS isnt monitored, as they want to ensure that they wont get in trouble further down the line for not fulfilling their obligations of letting DIAC know Im leaving. This is ok, I understand that they need to do this, and I wouldnt want them to lie.

 

Cheers!

There have been quite a few threads started on this issue over the past few weeks, I suggest you search for those, although you will find many conflicting answers.

 

You aren't supposed to 'switch' employers - the 857 doesn't work like the 457 in which you can transfer your sponsorship to a new employer.

 

You'll find if you try and speak to DIAC about this you won't get a clear answer, just a threat of visa cancellation.
