Visa options and a couple of 457 questions

Hey all,

I am currently working in Sydney, as is my defacto, we came over on a 476 visa which runs out early next year and we are looking at what options are available to us.

From looking at the .gov site it looks like 457 is the only option, there's a PR visa open to us but we are only interested in staying a couple of years or so and the price is prohibative. Are there any better options than 457?

My employer isn't set up to sponsor but it happy to do so.

If going ahead with a 457 would I need to get a new police check from the UK, it will be over a year old now but I haven't left Oz since landing here last August.
Also would we have to provide defacto evidence/qualifications etc etc if they already have these from the existing visa?

Thanks for taking the time to read the post, there's quite a bit of info to take in and the .gov site isn't always the easiest to digest

Police checks aren't always required for 457 visas.

You'd have to provide evidence with the application that you are in a de- facto relationship. You can simply update the evidence you provided previously.

Thanks CCMS, that's good to know that not all of the documents are required.

Are you aware if there would be any issue in my employer nominating the position I am already in and for me to use that position in my visa?

There shouldn't be any issue with the requirement for not being able to find an Aussie to fill the role as we've been looking for another employee for about 9 months now.

The fact that you are already working for the employer could work in your favour. Labour Market Testing must be addressed at the nomination stage and any evidence must be attached as soon as the nomination has been lodged. Do not wait until the next day.
