You must ensure that the person you have sponsored participates only in the position for which the visa was granted. If you want to engage a visa holder for a different occupation, program or activity, they must lodge a new visaapplication. This obligation starts on the day the person you have sponsored is granted a visa. If they already hold a visa when you sponsor them, your obligation starts on the day the visa application is approved.
This obligation ends on the day (whichever is the earliest):
- the sponsored visa holder has a visa granted for another approved sponsor
- the sponsored visa holder is granted another substantive visa of a different type from the one for which you sponsored them (unless that other visa is a bridging visa, criminal justice visa or enforcement visa)
- the sponsored visa holder has left Australia and the relevant visa (and any subsequent bridging visa) is no longer in effect.
