Immigration Assistance

457 Assistance

In Australia a person may only lawfully give immigration assistance if he or she is a registered migration agent or is exempt from being registered. Only registered migration agents may receive a fee or reward for providing immigration assistance.

If an unregistered person in Australia, who is not exempt from registration, gives you immigration assistance they are committing a criminal offence and may be prosecuted.


Want to convert your 457 Visa to a Permanent Resident PR Visa for Australia?

457 Visa Assistance can help you now

Did you spend a lot of time, money and effort getting your 457 Visa so you could work in Australia temporarily?

Do you know that when working on a 457 Visa, if you lost your job, in 60 days it could all be gone?

The 457 Visa scheme is a short term TEMPORARY VISA and offers no guarantee to you or your family. With the 457 Visa, if your 457 Visa Employer Sponsor terminates your employment, then you may only be given 60 days to find a new 457 Visa approved Employer Sponsor, apply for another substantive visa or leave Australia!

Instead of returning to your country of origin if you lose your job or your 457 Visa expires, would you like to live and work in Australia with Permanent Residency?

Let our Migration Consultants assist you every step of the way through the process of changing from a 457 visa to Australian Permanent Residency.

Depending upon what visa is most suitable there may be matters relating to:

  • English language requirements / IELTS
  • The Skill Matching Database
  • Australian Skills Recognition
  • Skills Assessment
