Changes to 457 Visa

We had some wonderful news last week with these changes to the 457 Visa conditions.


The Department of Immigration and Boarder Protection has confirmed that from March 2018:

People who held, or had applied for a subclass 457 visa on 18 April 2017 will be able to access certain existing provisions under the Temporary Residence Transition stream.

This change means anyone who held a 457 Visa prior to 19 April can access Permanent Residency under the Temporary Residence Transition stream.

  • Have worked in the same position for the same employer as approved for their 457 Visa
  • Remain under 50 years of age
  • Worked two out of three years prior to nomination on a subclass 457
