Lost job on 457... what next?

Recommended Posts

Guest atrumpetandadream

Having a bit of a nightmare. Came over to Sydney on 457 six monts ago. Entire department has now been outsourced and my job is gone. I've accepted a package and will leave in one months time.


As I understand it this means I have the one month + 28 days and then I have to leave Australia. I really Sydney and I don't want to leave. Money isn't too tight and, in a worse case scenario I could be out of work for a couple of years and still support myself. It's legally staying in the country which is my problem.


What are my options?


- find a new employer willing to sponsor in the next month + 28 days?

- start the permanent visa process now and then take an extended holiday somewhere cheap in asia then come back

- get a tourist or bridging visa and stay till i find someone willing to sponsor for 457?


Any feedback is much appreciated.

Hi atrumpetandadream,


I am no expert, but I am sure that as the company have 'taken' your job from you that there must be some sort of support and help from the DIAC..... but I would get on to finding another employer ASAP...


Like I said, I am no expert, may be best for you to give the DIAC a call???


Good luck

Welcome to PIO, I would speak with a migration agent before you contact DIAC.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.
