Advantages and Disadvantages of an Australian 457 Visa from an employee’s perspective

Advantage to the employee. The 457 visa processing times are usually faster and less stringent than Permanent Residency visas allowing you to start work in Australia quicker and with less paperwork and medicals in many cases. Disadvantages to the employee. Your visa is tied to the company who has sponsored you meaning you cannot change company without applying for a new 457 visa and the visa being approved by the Department of Immigration. In many cases the employer has an unfair advantage over the employee and in the past this has lead to employees working in unsafe conditions, employees not receiving the market rate for their services, and the employee not being considered for promotion.
