Changes to the Subclass 457 Visa Program – English Language Requirements
Do current Subclass 457 visa holders need to meet these requirements?
Current visa holders will not be required to demonstrate their English skills while on their current visa (unless required by licensing or registration).
Current visa holders who apply for a further Subclass 457–Business (Long Stay) visa after 14 April 2009 will need to meet the new English language requirement of IELTS 5, unless they are in an exempted person category described above.
Applicants that do not meet the English language requirement will not meet the criteria to be granted a further Subclass 457–Business (Long Stay) visa and will be required to make arrangements to depart Australia or apply for another visa that is appropriate to their continued stay in Australia.
Frequently Asked Questions About English Language Requirements
The revised English language requirement of an average score of International English Language Testing System (IELTS) 5, across the four test components, takes effect from 14 April 2009. This requirement applies to people making a Subclass 457 application on or after 14 April 2009, for the first time, against nominated occupations within ASCO major group 4 and those applying as chefs or head chefs (ASCO 3322-11 or 3322-01).
The revised requirements apply to current Subclass 457 holders only where a subsequent application is made for a Subclass 457 visa seeking a visa stay period extending beyond the period of their current visa
When does/did the new English language requirement come into effect?
The changes to the English language requirement came into effect on 14 April 2009.
Who is affected by this change?

I am a brick layer currently holding a Subclass 457 visa granted on 1 January 2008 valid until 30 June 2010. I did not have to meet the IELTS requirement (4.5) because I had held a Subclass 457 visa as at 1 July 2007 and the visa I have was granted for the same period when I changed employers. If I change employers now, what is the IELTS score I need to obtain?
I am a welder who was granted a Subclass 457 visa on 3 March 2008 valid up to 2 March 2012. I scored an average of 4.5 in my IELTS test. If I want to change employers do I have to meet the new English requirement (IELTS 5)?

If I change employers, and the new employer was to pay me $50,000, do I need to meet the English language requirement?
