advice needed - visa 417, 175 - what to do?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I am a newb, so hopefully i get the terms right and someone can give me some good advice.


I am currently on a 417 visa, which expires in february.


I have applied for the 175 skilled visa - but I understand this can take quite a while to go through.


Is there any way I can get a temporary visa / another visa / some mechanism to stay in oz whilst my 175 is processed?


I am currently working and can get a letter of support from my employer...


thanks for any help you might offer...

As the 175 is an offshore visa, you will need to leave the country for a few days when its about to be granted.


The only way that you will be able to stay in Australia and keep working until your 175 is processed is to get sponsorship from your employer for a 457 visa.
