Default 457 Visa Class (Australia)

Anyone out there got a 457 Visa for working in I.T. in Australia?

How did you get it and how much aggravation was involved?

Hello Stephen,

I found it quite easy to get the 457 visa. The agency I was with (Eurolink, but they are now called Aristotle) in Sydney did all the paperwork ...etc. I was allowed to work until my passport was stamped with the visa. So long as you have some in demand skill sets (mine was MS-Exchange/Desktop Support) then hopefully you shouldn't have too many problems.
Please bear in mind I was in Australia at the time though and I personally called into the agency. Registered on the Monday, working by the Friday - aus$45 / hour, and that was back in 1999.
My wife is hassling me all the time to go back now that we have kids. Let me know how you go on.
Best of luck

Hi Stephen

I am an I.T professional in the UK and I managed to get a 457 to work in Sydney, Aus.
It was quite opportunist though, as my company are rolling out a new system into Aus/Asia and Nz, so I said "wouldnt it be a good idea to have someone in the same time zone" and promptly volunteered myself.
I have literally got my 457 Visa approved today, so I'll be in Sydney by April. So it can be done!
It wasnt a hassle as such, but I did have to jump through a few company loops and the firms administrations process.
