..and much much more!

Recommended Posts

I am general accountant, currently under 457 visa and completed 2 years with the employer and still working. My employer is willing to sponsor for 186 visa but unfortunately his annual turnover is less than 1 million. There is caveat for accountant that annual turnover should be over 1 million. But this caveat was not before and I was approved 457 visa without turnover of 1 million. So can you please recommend me if I am eligible to apply for 186? Thank you

Yes but it is before you apply for the 186. The 457 is a seperate visa. 
The way I see it is if you apply for the 186 you need to meet the rules that are in place now, not 3 or 4 years ago. Maybe that’s wrong but it wouldn’t make any sense to me. I’d check with a MA.


Due to escalating bills and budgetary cuts in the NHS, unfortunately, the light at the end of the tunnel has had to be switched off.

Thanks for the reply. I checked with An MA and he said it should be fine with grandfathering provision, but my employer is not convinced with the amount of money he will have to spend for the process and if it will be success.

Yes well that’s a seperate issue.. the 186 has a high refusal rate. Employers would be well advised to use a MA, and research if they can meet all the requirements and costs beforehand. Just because they want to sponsor someone doesn’t mean they can. The business side is complex, far more complex than people on these forums make out at times. It’s not just a case of ‘we have a turnover of $x, so we meet the criteria’, there’s so much more to it than that. Be wary if you’re the first person they’re sponsoring too. They probably don’t really know what they’re getting into. 
You should seek a MA to represent your interests too, they need to be MARA registered. That’s important, don’t just use a lawyer or someone claiming to be an agent. Do your homework on someone first to maximise success, the same advise goes to the employer! If your employer uses a dodgy ‘agent’ it will more likely be refused and you won’t get your visa either.

Hi there

the caveats does not apply for 186 TRT, ( it’s only apply for 186 direct entry or new 482 visa

So please do not miss this opportunity and follow the migration advice 

thanks

It depends on your situation and when your 457 visa was lodged.

If you have a Maigration Agent, you should be guided by them as they are aware of all your spefici details.

This information is not correct as it depends on the specific circumstances of the applicant.

If there 457 granted earlier in 2017 and lead to TRT , the caveat does not apply

Again, this information is not correct.

You are trying to argue with one of the most respected professional experts on visas in a Australia.
