Be actively and lawfully operating overseas (not in Australia), and be bringing you to Australia either to establish a business operation, or to fulfill contractual obligations

As noted above, a SAF contribution will soon replace the training requirements.
The position to be filled must:
NOTE: certain occupations on these lists will be subject to additional requirements (e.g. work experience, regional location, type of business operated by sponsor). Please contact us for further details based on your particular circumstances.
A visa applicant must (unless a specific exemption applies in any case):
After being employed in the nominated occupation (MLTSSL occupations only) for the nominating employer for at least 3 years whilst holding a TSS visa, applicants may be eligible for employer nominated permanent residence. Note that transitional arrangements apply to existing 457 visa holders who held their 457 visa on or before 18 April 2017 so the above restrictions do not apply to this cohort.
