By ShaunR6883Hi guys
Myself and my family have been on 457 visa's for almost 3 years. Last year I had to get my son a new passport from the UK as his old one was due to run out.
We never informed the immigration department of the new passport as we assumed that the 457 visa details would transfer automatically.
In March this year I applied for 186 sponsored visa's and I put my son's new passport details in.
Have I done wrong in assuming that the 457 visa would automatically transfer onto the new one?
I am worried now as I'm not sure how I would go about changing this. I still have his old passport.
Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.
Are there any restrictions on 457 visa?
My agent told me that I can only leave 28 days?
However, I can't find any rules about this.
I have to go back to my country for about 3~6 months, cuz my grandmother is very ill and my family wants me to stay with her.
Need some advice, help!
Thanks very much.
By Raul SeniseMore details about grandfathering arrangements for people who held or applied for a subclass 457 before 18 April 2017:
"People who held, or had applied for, a subclass 457 visa on 18 April 2017 will be able to access certain existing provisions under the Temporary Residence Transition stream:
- occupation requirements remain the same (i.e. there are no restrictions as long as the nominee continues to work in the same position for the same employer as approved for their subclass 457 visa);
- the age requirement will remain at less than 50 years of age; and
- the work experience requirement, and the requirement to have worked at least two out of the three years prior to nomination on a subclass 457, will remain at two years."
By Pickles67Hi there,
I am holding 457 visa for 2 years and 2 weeks. My employer told me that they can't nominate me yet because regulations are changed, immigration doesn't process the current applications and they also need to apply for new certificate or licence to be able sponsor more people or nominate me, because since regulations are changed, they are not compliment anymore. This is what I understood; not exact word. So they want to hold my nomination until march. Is this legal? Do I have to wait?
