As a result, an increasing number of individuals from the world over have been applying for and obtaining work permit visas to the land down under. A temporary work visa (Subclass 457) is usually granted to employers who wish to sponsor workers abroad. It is among the most popular work visas and overseas employers as well as Australian employers may sponsor a skilled employee under the Subclass 457 visa for any duration of time between a day and four years. While the skilled worker is in Australia, he / she can also invite family members to study and/or work during their stay in the country. After an individual has entered the country through a Subclass 457 visa, he / she may enter and leave Australia as many times as they desire during the duration of their visa.

Requirements for Employers to Apply for an Employees Visa

In case an employer wishes to apply for his / her employee to transfer to Australia through a Subclass 457 visa, a few requirements must be met. These requirements are as follow:

  • Nominate the occupations that can be filled, and the workers they intend to recruit to fill said positions.

Regardless of what kind of business the employer runs, he / she must attest proof of commitment to employing local labour whilst offering assurance that they do not encourage discriminatory employment practices. It is essential for business to have a clean record with regards to the business itself as well as all individuals associated with operations.

  • Higher Taxes for Earnings on a Working Holiday Visa

    People venturing to Australia on a working holiday visa will have to pay a much higher tax than the Australians even though they were saved from a big increase in taxes on their income. The Australian Government had planned to amend the tax laws which would result in working holiday visitors paying almost three times more compared to the Aussies. This was met with widespread opposition as it could greatly impact the availability of seasonal workers and decrease the number of working holiday visitors. This forced the government to make revisions to the new policy. With the revisions lessen the tax burden, working holiday makers stand to benefit from a higher take-home pay, but still pay a much higher rate than the residents.
