Changes to transitional 457 worker pathway


The definition of transitional 457 worker has been amended to mean the person who has held a subclass 457 visa at any time occurring on or after 18th April 2017. 

The original definition of transitional 457 worker excluded the persons who has applied for a subclass  457 visa after 18 March 2018. This provides the extension for the class of persons who can apply for a subclass  187 visa under the transitional arrangements.
