Good Morning.

Generally you have to cancel the application you have and the new visa applied for.

So if you wish to change visas you will have to withdraw your initial application.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Hi ,The current employer sponsored visa 457 which my current company is making an offer is to brisbane,whereas the 190 visa was sponsored by SA.Does the rule of withdrawing initial application still hold good.
Also can i apply for 457 without withdrawing 190 visa and When the 190 visa is granted withdraw 457.
Best Regards

Good Afternoon

They are 2 separate visas. You cannot have both. It is one or the other.

The law does not allow you to apply for multiple visas as a lottery to hedge your bets. If they see you have done that they may not approve either.
