Default Changing Job on 457 Visa

Hi all,

I am currently on a temporary 457 visa and have been for 1.5 years. I have been given an opportunity at another company in a similar role. If I was to move job, would I be eligible to go straight for an Employer Nominated PR? Or would I have to go onto another 457 and wait another two years before being eligible to apply for the employer nominated PR. I would appreciate any advice on this as if it is not practical I will have to reassess if it is worth moving job. Thanks.

You might be able to apply for a sc. 186 or sc. 187 Direct Entry stream visa, if you and your future sponsor meet the requirements. The 2 year employment requirement does not apply to the Direct Entry stream, but there are additional requirements that must be met. Your new sponsor may have to sponsor you on a sc. 457 first, otherwise you will have to keep working for the original sponsor until the sc. 186/187 has been approved, because of condition 8107.
