Hi Everyone,

My team with the previous employer who was sponsoring me for 457 visa got sold to another company. I moved with the team to a new company and I had to file for the renomination of my 457 visa sponsor.

My agent has informed me that he can still file the 186 visa application because the role, responsibilities, and type of job are consistent however, he is not confident because my work location had to change. I have moved within Sydney to another office.

The clause does not mention anything about the location and I wanted to get some guidance on if you think this can cause an issue? I would assume that this is a fairly common activity when divestitures happen?

I would appreciate if you can provide some guidance.
