New Visa Moderations in Australia

December 2013, 20
EMAIL  Print A+


The extremely popular 457 visa has been dramatically altered by the Australian government. The visa which had become increasingly popular for British technicians, managers and professionals who desired to begin a new chapter of their lives in the Australian domain, has been clamped down on by the Australian government. The latest changes to the visa has made life quite difficult for people who are already residing in Australia under the 457 visa. The former tax incentive which was called the “living away from home allowance” has been abolished, this has seen some states now charge visa holders if they wish to sign their children up to be educated in local schools. Education and general schooling does not require a payment from locals.

Previous government run under labour introduced the changes which have been placed, the labour government claimed many eligible employers were in actual fact abusing the program by using it as a way to simply employ overseas workers so they could pay them a lower wage. A high amount of Australian employers have disagreed with the accusation that they are purposely seeking overseas workers in a bid to save money on wages, the employers are hoping that a new conservative government will be inclined to loosen up on the recent regulations. The new laws of government now feel that it is a necessity to get companies to take a much more lengthy approach, allowing a for a prolonged duration in which they could find an appropriate Australian residents to fill the positions the company has available. The Australian government has also changed fees for applications on visas, they are now considerably lower than previous years.

Some of the residents of Australia, feel the visa program for the 457 is an integral cog which is essential to the upkeep of Australia's financial economy, especially in a generation which has a global industry and around 98% of modernisation occurs outward of the Australian domain. It is thought that 4 out of 5 global companies enlist people who are granted a 457 visa to teach Australian operatives which will benefit the company, allowing it to expand and flourish. Skills and understanding which are taught to Australians by a worker coming from overseas will ultimately be reflected in the financial economy in Australia, improving the business reproduction and creating a vast amount of available job openings for locals in Australia.
