If you applied for approval

If you applied for approval as a training and research or professional development sponsor before 19 November 2016 and are approved as a sponsor of this type, you will be able to use this approval to sponsor a Training visa (subclass 407) applicant or holder up until the 18 May 2017 or until your current sponsorship approval ceases (whatever is earlier). From 19 May 2017 you will need to be approved as a temporary activities sponsor if you want to sponsor a Training visa (subclass 407) applicant or holder.
