Major Advancements in Temporary Work Visa
The Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection has finally promulgated significant advancements to Temporary (Skilled) Work Visa (Subclass 457). Users can anticipate streamlined and effective program in the next six months after the successful completion of an all-inclusive review.

DIBP has given its support to 23 recommendations which are to be put forward by the Robust New Foundations report. The new recommendations are figured out to accelerate the existing system and to assist entrepreneurs and visa owners to navigate effortlessly.

  • Labor- market testing will not be eradicated, but DIBP will soon reduce the red tape, which the potential employers are experiencing currently.
  • Existing government of the country has also planned to make necessary amendments to English language test scores. As per the existing proposal, every applicant is suggested to maintain an average IELTS score of 5 with not less than 4.5 in any of the band. Introduction of another test provider will be promulgated soon.

However, this new alterations are applicable only to new and revised accords, but not to the existing agreements. Additionally, the DIBP will also examine a change to extend the validity durations for foreign business sponsors with a viewpoint to align this with the standard business sponsorship authorization duration.
  • DIBP has also prolonged the notification duration, in which a sponsor has to inform about few events such as altering the designation of 457 visa holders.

However, the income threshold obligation remains the same. The DIBP has ensured that the income levels will stay at A$53,900 for each year in the next two years.
