The Temporary Work Subclass 457 Visa

The Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457), popularly referred to as the “457 visa” was one of the most common long duration temporary work visa for Australia.

On 18 March 2018 the 457 Visa was replaced the TSS subclass 482 Visa. This means that the 457 Visa will no longer be granted. While applications for the 457 Visa are no longer being accepted, applications that were filed before 18 March 2018 will still be processed.

If you are currently a 457 Visa holder, you are able to complete the duration of your stay and will not be affected.
