Many overseas workers who are employed for a short span in Australia are reminded that many changes have been made to the 457 visa.

The sponsor obligations have changed, the person who is being sponsored mainly can only work in the occupation he has been nominated for, changes have been made to the costs and adequate training must also be provided.

Recruitment fees do not have to be payed by the visa holders which they must remember.

Sponsors have been informed that they cannot recover any costs from the primary sponsored individual. From July 2013, another rule has come up which does not allows sponsors to charge the person extra costs and nor can they transfer the costs to some other person and charge them.

The following costs have to be compulsorily passed by the sponsors: the agents migrating costs, nominating charges and sponsoring charges, nomination application fees, administrative costs and also all the other sunder expenses which the employer needs to pay when they recruitment an individual into their organisation.

If the sponsored transfers this costs to some other individual than he will fail this test, and his sponsorship program will be cancelled and he will be barred form providing any sponsorship, will also be issued with a notice of infringement through which the sponsor will have to enter a enforced undertaking and also have to apply in court for an order for a civil penalty. This information was provided by a person from the DIBP, Department of Immigration and Border protection of Australia.

The visa holder cannot make the application for being nominated or sponsored, only the prospective or approved sponsor can do that. All the costs of becoming an approved sponsor must be taken care of  by the sponsor. The spokesman also said that if a visa applicant pays the sponsorer's fees for nomination and sponsorship this is illegal, and the ponderer is failing on what he's obliged to do.
