Default 457E and employer sponsored

Would somebody help with a query please.

On a 457IE visa, if during the 4 years I get offered a job can I go through the employer sponsored route and, if so, what criteria has to be met. Does the particular State settled in effect the application and is there a points system involved. Also what is the timescale to get PR via this route.

I apprecate I cannot be employed on the temp visa.

Cheers all

No reason why not. However the Australian employer usually has to
prove he can't recruit a local to do the job to qualify for employer
nominated PR. There are other requirements too.

I suggest you download the employer nomination booklet from the DIMIA
site.

If the employer is in a regional area then the criteria may be
slightly easier to get PR via an employer (Regional Sponsored
Migration Scheme)

Not for employer nominated PR.

There are two stages. Firstly the job must be 'approved' to ensure no
local is available. That can take a few months or more. Then you
apply for the visa. Usually that takes a few months too.


    >I apprecate I cannot be employed on the temp visa.

Not on a 457IE. But you could switch to a 457 with sponsorship from
the employer if you wanted to start working before your PR came
through. However, if PR didn't work out you'd then not be able go
back to 457IE status, in the light of the 1 March changes to the
business migration and temporary entry system.

You should consider getting professional advice before taking any
irreversible step.

Are you not planning to go for PR via the business route (Established
Business in Australia)?

Hi Jaj

Thanks for the info. I will head to the site for the info.

My only reason for the question was if for factors beyond our control we do not end up qualifying for the established business visa for PR we will need a different route.

Covering all bases I think.

Cheers
