457 visa changes to work condition 8107

November 25, 2015

If you have lodged an application for a subclass 457 visa or are intending to do so you should be aware that from 1 December 2015 there will be a number of changes to the Migration Regulations  in relation to subclass 457 visas granted on or after this date.  In relation to 457 visas obtained under a labour agreement or standard business sponsorship, this includes:

  • a new condition 8107(3)(aa) that a 457 visa holder who is onshore must commence work within 90 days of the visa being granted – this is consistent with the existing requirement for offshore visa holders to commence work or within 90 days of arriving in Australia

  • an amendment to condition 8107(3)(c) to require a 457 visa holder who is required to hold a licence, registration or membership for their nominated occupation to obtain that licence, registration or membership within 90 days of the visa being granted (if onshore) or within 90 days of arriving in Australia (if offshore), to notify the Department of Immigration if the licence, registration or membership is refused, revoked or cancelled and not to engage in work that is inconsistent with the licence, registration or membership.
