Subclass 457 Visa

The most common temporary skilled work visa in the Australian Visa program the subclass 457 visa is aimed and allowing businesses to fill genuine skill shortages.  There are three application stages involved in the Temporary Skilled Work Visa Subclass 457 program;

  1. Business applies for approval as a standard business sponsor
  2. Business applies for approval of nominated position
  3. The skilled overseas worker applies for the required subclass 457 visa to fulfill the nominated position

The above stages can be lodged separately or simultaneous.  For some business owners and skilled workers the process may seem straight forward however in recent times the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) have increased their scrutiny of 457 applications.  If you are business owner or skilled worker considering pursuit of the 457 application process we would recommend seeking advice on the proposed application before lodging.  A small oversight or combination of small errors can often be the deference between grant or refusal of application.

It is often best to have complete and thorough applications lodged by an experienced Migration Agent however we can also assist if you have receive a request for further information or with an appeal of a refusal decision through the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

  • “We have tried a number of migration agent companies in Australia within the last few years, and Glenn is a breath of fresh air. We’ve had problems with promises made by other agents before, but GW Migration are very open, honest and trustworthy. Glenn’s experience was clear to see right from the initial enquiry and there is no way we would every consider choosing a different agent ever again – Glenn and GW Migration come highly recommended from the team at Bean Media Group”

  • Glenn and his assistant Liz were very professional and helpful; they answered all of my questions quickly and provided great advice. Very happy with their services and would recommend them to anyone applying for any visa in Australia as the process can feel very overwhelming and intimidating.

  • My son and I were granted our Regional Sponsored Migration Visas last week and would like to take this opportunity to express our sincerest gratitude for all the guidance and hard work that Glenn put in to our not so straight forward case. Throughout the whole process which at many times can seem so perplexing and intimidating Glenn provided us with sound and concise advise and helped to keep the morale up. The amount of red tape and documentation necessary for this process can seem like a logistical nightmare at times but step by step he got us through it and to the finishing line in the end!

    The fact that we were granted our visas will have life-long repercussions for both my son and I and therefore I recommend to anyone out there about to embark on this process to use a reputable and trustworthy immigration agency, such as GW Migration. We have been absolutely elated since hearing the news last week and could not have done it without them.

  • My wife and i chose Glenn Wellburn because we felt he was honest and very professional in his work.Prior to coming to him we met with several migration officers who did not seem clear about our case nor did we feel we could trust our future to them.

    I would recommend Glenn to anyone seeking professional advice on matters of migration to Australia. He is solid in his preparation of documentation and is caring in his approach.

    Thanks again Glenn!

  • After 2 years of trying to organize papers to apply for permanent residency myself, I came to see Glenn to see if he could help. After about 3 weeks, I received notification that my application for a Returned Residents Visa had been approved. They were professional in all that they did and because of their help, mine and my family’s future is now secure and looks a lot more promising.
