    Posted: 20/September/2018 at 11:09

An employee applied for a 457 visa in mid 2016, had their application rejected and is now waiting for the appeal to be heard. The business has recently been put up for sale, in the event it is sold to a new entity, how will this impact the visa applicant?

Thanks for any thoughts on this.

Not sure on this one, but it will probably come down to whether the new owner of the business wants a 457 visa holder on the staff. As the previous application was refused and as the business is now changing hands, I think your chances of soon being on a plane home are reasonably high.
