482 and 457 Linking Policy

What can or cannot be linked? – Attempting to clarify the confusion

Hi everyone,

With the transition from 457 to 482, there seems to be a lot of confusion as to what applications can or cannot be linked to each other.

I’ll provide a summary here and welcome any comments, additions and corrections.

Pending/Finalised 457 SBS —> Pending/Finalised 482 Nomination + Pending 482 Visa = YES

Pending/Finalised 457 SBS + Pending/Finalised 457 Nomination —> Pending 482 Visa = NO

Pending/Finalised 457 Nomination —> Pending 482 Visa = NO

Pending/Finalised 482 SBS —> Pending/Finalised 457 Nomination + Pending 457 Visa = YES

Pending/Finalised 482 SBS —> Pending 457 Nomination = NO

Pending/Finalised 482 SBS + Pending/Finalised 482 Nomination —> Pending 457 Visa = NO

Pending/Finalised 482 Nomination —> Pending 457 Visa = NO

Pending 482 Nomination —> Finalised 457 Visa = YES

Pending 482 Nomination —> Pending 482 Visa = NO
