Applying for a 457 Work Permit for Australia

A 457 Work Permit can be granted to a foreigner wishing to conduct work for a company in Australia for up to 4 years as long as you have been sponsored by an approved business/employer and you have the necessary skills to fill the position.

457 Work Permit 

How do I, or my company, prove that I am the only one for the job?

Employers must be approved by the Australian government as an eligible employer and then nominate the position that needs to be filled. These are 2 separate applications that are done prior to a Visa application being submitted.

Do I need formal qualifications?

Depending on your occupation, having qualifications relating to the position will help your case dramatically. However! In many cases where positions don’t require the relevant qualifications and experience is what is needed, The Department will look over this mandatory requirement and assess the candidate purely on his or her experience in the trade as well as the companies motivation to employ that individual.
