Changing 457 sponser whilst my 820 application is processing

Hey guys

I am changing employer on my 457 and they are just about to submit the nomination. Will this affect my 820 onshore application and should I inform immi?

I don't think my visa grant number changes its just the nomination that does so I'm hoping it won’t effect it.

Any thoughts?

You can inform the office that is processing your 820 of the change but it should have zero impact on your 820 application.

I changed employer after logding my visa (I was on a 457 and applying for a 461, which has similar criteria to partner visa), and after having my new employer put together the 457 nomination, I submitted the form 1005 requesting a change to my work restriction. If your previous 457 is tied to one employer you cannot just change jobs or get a new 457 while waiting for your 820. Work restrictions are documented on your BVA form from DIAC when you lodged your 820. But you will have to inform DIAC of this change and if you need the work restriction dropped, they have to do that before you can take the new position.

Good news is, you don't have to pay for another 457 visa, they employer just nominates, but you never have to lodge your half.

If that makes sense . . .

Thanks I under stand the nomination process well as I work in HR and I'm changing employer within the rules of my current visa. I was just asking if I need to inform immi and if in anyway effects my 820 application. It shouldn't as my actual visa doesnt change just the nominating employer. My new employer has a migration agent they have put me in contact with so I will raise it with them. Thanks for the repky

Hi Springerella -

No need to inform those processing your 820 application, no effect on that application. Since you'll be moving from one sponsor to another, your bridging visa should not activate.

Best,

Mark Northam
