Australia implements a stricter rule in visas for overseas workers

Australia Permanent Residency

Now onwards, employers of Australia are allowed to hire foreign workers only after finding that all the local options have turned futile. Under the new visa rule for foreign workers, Australian government has also increased the visa fees. Before recruiting a foreign worker under the present 457 visa rule, employers have to declare that they could not find an eligible Australian for a particular job post. Before they sponsor a foreign worker, they have to advertise in a newspaper for four months about the vacant position.

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has expressed a concern that some Australian employers were recruiting foreign workers without checking the availability of relevant labour in the domestic market. DIAC department has expressed that these actions were not in accordance to the principles of the 457 visa program. Hence, the employers are required to provide details on the number of employees that they are going to sponsor.

The recruited employees have to be in a direct employer-employee relationship. The new visa rule prohibits recruiting arrangements that fall outside the category of agreed labour agreements like contract agreements. Family visa applicants are levied with additional charges, as per the new increased visa fee. The enhanced visa fees are going to hit the workers with dependents and spouses. There is no increase in the application cost of student visas.

Around five jobs from pharmaceutical and aircraft engineering have been removed from the updated list of Skilled Occupation. In the previous years, 2011-2012, India has been the prominent source of permanent migration to Australia.
