Temporary Migration


Want to come and visit Australia? Perhaps you want to come over here to work, pursue business interests, or to train? There are many visas that allow you to remain in Australia on a temporary basis. Whether you qualify for any of these categories will depend on a number of factors, including your age, your qualifications and your level of relevant experience. Some of the temporary visa categories we deal with here at TEP include –

457 (long stay) Business Visa
- This is the most commonly used visa for employers to sponsor approved skilled overseas workers to work in Australia on a temporary basis. Employers can nominate a number of positions for different occupations under the same sponsorship application. With this visa the people businesses employ from overseas can: work in Australia for a period of between one day and four (4) years; bring any eligible secondary applicants with them to Australia – secondary applicants can work and study and after entering Australia, have no limit on the number of times they travel in and out of Australia.

407 Occupational Training Visa - This visa is for people from outside Australia who want to improve their occupational skills through training with an Australian organisation. People may be nominated for this visa to participate in: training or practical experience in the workplace required for the person to obtain registration for employment in their occupation in Australia or in their home country; a structured workplace training program to enhance the person’s existing skills in an eligible occupation; or structured workplace training to enhance the person’s skills and promote capacity building overseas.

We can, however, assist you with any temporary visa category that suits your situation and would be happy to discuss it with you further. If you are interested in pursuing the possibility of coming to Australia as a temporary resident please complete our Online Migration Assessment and one of our migration agents will be in touch with you.
