Hi Everyone

Could anyone please advise the following, due to redundancy on a 482 Visa, i only have 60 days to find a new sponsor. The questions I have are as follows?

1. Do I need to have the new sponsor approved within the 60 days if not then,

2. What happens if the new sponsor is waiting for approval and it goes past the 60 days or,

3. If the new sponsor is agreed either in point 1 or point 2, do I have to start work immediately or can I start a month or so later?

I would really appreciate any assistance on this.

Thanks Pete

I think this is one of those situations where you need to hire an agent to get the right advice. Ignorance is no excuse, as they say, and you don’t want to jeopardise  future visas by accidentally overstaying.

Thank you for your advice, I am currently trying to get hold of an agent to discuss this matter. Hopefully, somebody on here can assist me in the meantime, fingers crossed.

Use one of the agents who regularly post here like @wrussell or @paulhand
