After the applicant lodges for 457 sponsorship, he or she needs to nominate an individual who’ll work for them at the time of the nomination.
457 Visa Occupations List
You must have an occupation that is on Schedule 1 or 2 of the CSOL.
After you provide your employment contract and job description along with the application, you’ll be gone through a 2 stage test process that’ll decide your salary. Regardless, the salary must be over threshold salary. For a temporary skilled migrant working 38 hrs/week, threshold income is more than $53,900.
Your salary must be on par with an Australian worker, and you need to prove this. To prove, you can provide a valid payslip or will need to complete a salary survey or show similar job advertisements in your area.
