As part of the nomination requirements, the nominated position needs to be assessed as genuine.

There are many occassions where an occupation can be assessed to be non-genuine, for example:

  • the position is for a nominee who is related to the business owner or sponsor
  • the position is for a Chef or Restaurant Manager where the business is a fastfood restaurant
  • the position nominated is not relevant to the nature of business or industry, for e.g. nominating a Sales Representative for an accounting firm

There are many other circumstances which may give rise to doubts on whether the nominated position is genuine or otherwise.

If you need advice about the position you are nominating for your 457 visa application, contact Work Visa Lawyers to speak with our Immigration Lawyers and Migration Agents.
