Self-Sponsorship on a 457 visa

The 457 visa (Temporary Work (Skilled) visa, subclass 457) allows skilled workers to come to Australia and work for an approved business for up to four years.

You may obtain a 457 visa (via the pathway self – sponsorship) if you decide to found a company in Australia and to delegate or second yourself to Australia as an employee in your own company.

A self-sponsored 457 visa may put you on a pathway to permanent residency in Australia. You may be eligible to apply for a skilled visa or an employer nominated visa, providing you permanent residency status, in the future.
