Why comply with 457 sponsor training benchmarks?

On approval of a 457 business sponsorship, a commitment is made by the business sponsor to continue to meet the training benchmarks under which the 457 sponsorship was approved during each full year of the sponsorship approval. It is imperative that the business sponsor continue to comply with this requirement.

Where a 457 visa holder applies for permanent residence under the Employer Nomination Scheme, the Department of Immigration will ensure that the business did in fact comply with this requirement for the life of the 457 sponsorship.

Not meeting the training requirement can result in:

  • Sponsorship Bars - preventing you from sponsoring more 457 visa holders
  • Cancellation of sponsorship and associated sponsored visas
  • Fines of over $10,000 can apply for each breach
  • inability to sponsor for other visa categories such as permanent ENS visas
  • issues in renewing Standard Business Sponsorship (SBS) approval

We recommend that business sponsors conduct an annual review of their training compliance with the 457 sponsor obligations. Please contact us to assist with your training audit.
