The 457 Visa is a stairway to heaven for many employees as they get the opportunity to work for Australian and foreign employers down under. The program was initially introduced by former Australian Prime Minister, John Howard. Previously known as Temporary business, the title of the visa was changed to Temporary Work fairly recently on 24 November 2012.
Although the 457 Visa doesn't nearly provide half the benefits that a Citizenship or Permanent Residence Status provides, it does have a fair amount of utility.
