Hi Paulette.

 

first of all welcome to PIO.

 

I dont think that it will affect the application, but you will be asked if he has previously overstayed on the 457 application.

 

Always be honest in the whole application otherwise it can come back and bite you on the bum later!

 

To be 100% sure, I would however suggest speaking to a migration agent or maybe even send an email to immigration.


 

 

:wink:

Hi Furkew

Thank you for answering my question

 

Sorry i didnt make it clear he has only been on a working holiday visa previously this will be his first application for the 457 he has never overstayed but on his 2nd year working visa he was only supposed to be employed for 6 months but was employed for 7 months, thats what he is wondering about

He needs to proceed with caution as he has breached his Working Holiday visa condition.

 

The 6 months work limitation is the main condition on this visa, so simply saying that he didn’t realize is quite a poor excuse.
