Our migration agents in Melbourne have been asked recently about subclass 457 sponsorship obligations.
As an approved standard business sponsor for subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) visa applicants, each employer must comply with various sponsorship obligations. Their obligations generally remain as long as there is a 457 visa holder in their employment and in some cases throughout the businesses’ approval validity period.
The sponsorship obligations framework is implemented to ensure that the sponsored visa holders are not exploited and working conditions meet the standards that would apply to Australians performing the same work at the same location.
