Before you can convert your temporary subcategory visa 457 or subcategory 482 into a permanent sub-category 186 ENS LA visa, you must have worked for at least 3 years full-time in the occupation to which the position relates, or a related field for at least 35 hours per week, unless it is reasonable for the Department of Homeairs Afflement to meet this requirement or authorize it in the employment contract. Note that employment contracts are a special case, as they operate outside the standard programs for qualified visas.

Immigration policy provides detailed guidelines on the requirements a company must meet in order to be admitted to an employment contract. Although the policy is not legally binding, it is a very useful guide to how the Department can apply and apply the migration provisions to any request that awaits it. It is outside the scope of this article to provide a complete overview of these requirements or to consider all possible scenarios (due to the complexity and volume of materials to be considered). We therefore strongly recommend, if you are considering applying for an employment contract for your company, that you have professional advice on this matter.
