457 visa to De Facto?

Hi guys, i need some visa advice.

I'm currently being sponsored by my company on a 457 visa and have a few questions.

1. If my company offers me permanent residency and I'm granted it do I have to stay working with them? And if so for how long?

Me and my Australian girlfriend of 2 years are eligible to apply for De Facto so I also have a few questions regarding this area...

2. Can I apply for De Facto while holding a 457 visa?
3. Once I apply for my De Facto can I quit my job while its being processed (essentially cancelling my 457 visa)?

Basically my problem is that I hate my job and want to leave it but obviously I'm tied in with my company because they are sponsoring me. I'm looking for the easiest way out.

If you cancel your 457 while waiting for a decision on a de facto partner visa, then your BV A would be cancelled altogether. I think this issue have been discussed in several other posts. Try to search a bit?

Not sure about your first question though.

If your employer sponsors you for a 186 visa, they commit that your position will continue for 2 years and you commit that you will remain with them for two years. I'm not sure if this becomes a condition of the visa, so whether your visa would be cancelled if either of you changed the employment, I'm not sure.

As GBP said, if you quit while on your 457 but waiting for your de facto visa, your bridging visa will be cancelled so you would have 90 days to leave Australia or find another sponsor for your 457.

Baazi, this is the 3rd time you've asked about this. If you try to apply for a visa, DIBP will undoubtedly see that you are unlawful and probably reject your visa application. It's also likely you'd be told to leave Australia. You need to talk to a registered migration agent to get their advice so you have the best chance of a successful outcome.
