Hello,
My family arrived in Australia by sailboat from Mexico 3 months ago and were all given 12 month visitor visas with the 8503--no further stay condition.

My husband has since received a job offer and has begun the process to obtain a 457 visa. We understand he needs to leave Australia to file (we're thinking NZ).

My questions:
Do all members of the family need to go? We'd like our daughter to start school she also needs the visa change. I could (potentially) wait--we all plan to go home for a visit in August.
Do we need to be out of the country for a specific period of time? Can we simply efile from the airport then catch the first plane back - or do we need to file from an office of some sort.
Are there further complexities I'm not understanding to this process?

Thanks for your quick assistance. We're trying to leave immediately if this is the best course of action because the employer is eager for my husband to start work.
best,
Diane
