Question business sponsorship 475 visa?

Hi guys, I have been browsing around here for quite a while now but did not find much people posted about business sponsorship 475 visa for immigration, so here is my thread.

My current visa is expiring very soon and have not find any doable way to extend it yet. One of my friend has an operating local business and is willing to sponsor me on a position listing on the list ( Occupations for Nominations in Relation to Subclass 457). The business has never sponsored anyone before but we have been read through most the info about the application process for a standard 457 visa which includes 3 stages,
Stage 1 Employer Sponsorship Requirements
The employer needs to show the following:

Company is lawfully and actively operating;
Company has a sound business record (excluding start up businesses) and abides by immigration laws; and
Company has and will continue to train staff.
Stage 2 Position Nomination Requirements
The employer needs to show the following:

Company is an approved Employer Sponsor;
The skills and experience required to fill the position;
The position is to be paid at the market salary rate; and
The position (occupation) is on the appropriate government list.
Stage 3 Visa Application Requirements
The employer needs to show the following:

Company has an approved and current Employer Sponsorship; and
Company has the nominated position approved.
The employee needs to show the following:
Employee has the required skills for the position.

My question are,
on Stage 1, does the employer has to show proof that he cannot source the worker from the local labour market? and how to show that lack if it is necessary?
on Stage 3, my qualification related to the nominated position is from overseas but I have relevant working experience in Aus, will it count from immi point of view?

Thanks for reading guys, any reply will be very appreciated

Hi Ann,

I have been in a similar situation to you, the wording on the department of immigration website can be very confusing!!
My company had never sponsored someone before and had no idea how to go about it. The way we found around this was to go through a company who has a labour agreement with the government- it allows a company to sponsor 457s and then onhire someone to another company.
We use a company called Aurec who are great, they take all the hassle out of the whole visa process and sort out living away from home allowance etc.

Sorry I cant answer your questions, but I thought this might be another option for you!
