The department of immigration has given approval for the work visas for almost thousands of nurses and engineers during the previous year, despite the department of employment cancelling their status of shortage skills.

About one among the each 50 people of trades, mining workers, technicians, hospitality staff and the employed professionals of Australia is an international worker who is hired on a 457 visa of four years.

This year, the data of immigration shows the complete figure of the holders of the 457 visa in Australia which fell 4.5% to the 106,755 in twelve months to the month of March. However, 15% growth in the applications point that the demand for the international work visa is beginning to rise.
