I have been offered a job in Sydney (yey!) but the employer have said that I must get a 457 visa (the contract is 4 years - it was 5 but has mysteriously been reduced).
I have two burning questions that I would be very grateful for some help with:
1) As I have 3 school aged children I would have to pay for their education on the 457 - the pay isn't that great - is it possible to apply for a 186 PR visa at this stage?
2) Can a 457 be extended from 4 years or be converted into a PR visa at any point since the 2017 changes?
