The 457 visa (Temporary Work (Skilled) visa, subclass 457) allows skilled workers to come to Australia and work for an approved business for up to four years. Subject to the business requirements the visa may be extended for a further 4 years period. The 457 visa is considered a pathway to Permanent Residency (PR) status.

If you are an employee and seek work through a sponsor, the 457 visa provides 2 main alternatives:
