Australian Immigration Minister on 457 Visas
Australian immigration minister, Scott Morrison, has emphasized suggested reforms of an independent review related to the Australian 457 visa scheme. The reforms include evading labour market testing, simplifying English language requirements and reviewing fee structure. 

In addition, the review report which was generated in response to 189 submissions and over 150 stakeholders have suggested fast-tracking of the processing system. 

Morrison also supported the changes proposed to simplify language requirements. He added that this would help to ensure appropriate language skills.    

A latest report from Australian immigration department revealed that a record number of 457 visas representing 126,350 have been granted in the 2012-2013 financial year, which is much higher than the previous year’s total.   

Out of total visas, 11.5 % of 457 visas were issued to construction workers, followed by health care with 10.9 %, accommodation and food services accounting for 9.9 %, and IT with 9.8 %.   

India forms the largest chunk of the growth pie holding 14,250 visas accounting for 20.8 %, followed by the UK representing 19.4 % and Ireland constituting 9.6 %.
