This visa allows you to migrate to Australia if you have competent English language and other skills and attributes which will contribute the most to the Australian economy.
This visa uses a points test to select visa applicants with characteristics needed in the Australian labour market.
You must be sponsored by an eligible relative living in Australia or obtain nomination from a participating State or Territory government agency.

A 457 visa is valid for up to four years and work experience gained in Australia on this visa can lead to permanent residence either through sponsorship by an eligible employer or the skilled migration program.
