Australias 457 Visa Program Migration Forum to debate on sweeping changes in it

Australia is gearing up for general elections that are going to be held next month. The sweeping changes that have been made to the Australia’s 457 Visa Program are going to be subjected to intense debate.  The recent changes made in the visa program have totally changed the scope of recruitment in foreign labour. Many employers from the resources sector are claiming that the real and major impact is going to be restricted skilled migration. Jules Pedrosa, migrations services manager with the Australian Mines and Metals Association (AMMA), expressed that the companies which undertake large resource projects need that guarantees investors in the form of access to skilled workers. Hence, skilled workers are highly important to operate and manage several large projects in Australia.

Former Immigration Minister of Australia, Chris Bowen, said that the changes in the program would be responsive and well targeted to the requirements of resource industry. However, AMMA had provided strong warnings towards the changes in the 457 visa program that the amendments were regressive, radical and demonstrated a dangerous move towards a less globalised and smaller Australia. Pedrosa also added that with over $268 billion of projects under construction or committed, Australian employers relied mainly on the skilled migrants to fulfil an important role in the resource industry of Australia.
