We (me and my wife) are currently in Australia on 457 Visa for around 1 year.

My spouse (on Dependent 457 Visa) is currently employed by an Australia based company and her employer is willing to sponsor her 186 Visa (Direct Entry Stream).

My question is whether her employer can sponsor her 186 PR Visa (Direct Entry Stream) despite she currently being on 457 Dependent Visa? Or does the applicant (for Direct Entry 186 Visa) need to be primary 457 Visa holder?

Her employer could sponsor her under DE, provided she can meet the overall requirements.

Thanks a lot CCMS. So her employer can sponsor her DE Employer Sponsored Visa (186) even though she is currently in Australia (not overseas) on a Dependent 457 Visa (Not a primary applicant).

She has her skills assessed by ACS already for her nominated occupation and she has already passed PTE test (for English).

Is there any other requirement you are referring to?
