Australian epassport

In an statement released by Chris Bowen MP, the Minister for Migration and Citizenship, he announced that the government is seeking a way to reduce to half the requirements for the 457 visa and also to put together a new temporary plan that will address the skills necessary for the resources sector, until a strong long-term investment will be obtained in the area of in-house training.

He also announced that the Enterprise Migration Agreements are willing to allow some of their major projects to be accessed from abroad so that the vacancies that require powerful skills may be occupied if the Australians are not capable. This will be a project specially made for the resources sector and is not meant in any way to put at risk the jobs of the Australian people.

The Minister for Migration and Citizenship specified that this is just a temporary project that will offer a solution so that the major resources projects are not put on hold.

The plan is bring foreign workers only as a supplement so that the major projects will be able to show their effectiveness.
