I have an employee currently on holidays in Australia. They are there as a tourist, on a subclass-651 visa. I now require them to do some work for me very urgently (for their home company in England).
I have looked into Visa options and it seems there are two, a subclass 457 (which has a 60 day lead-time) and a subclass 400 (which has a 10 day lead-time).
I do not wish for them to break the law as we have very regular compliance checks and this would not work out at all - so he has now lodged a 457 visa application, and we are hoping this will be granted very soon.
However, hypothetically, I was wondering - how would they know if a Visa application was made from within the country? Would they? If he had applied for a subclass 400 visa within Australia, would there be any way to track this?
