Australia To Replace Subclass 457 Visas To Restrict Over Immigration

18 Apr 2017


457 subclass visa

The Australia’s 457 subclass visa has been the most easy and common way for employers to employ and invite the skilled workers to Australia on temporary basis. The subclass 457 was introduced in 1996 to entice the skilled professionals. The number of visas issued under the subclass is uncapped, and touched a peak of 126,000 during the year 2012-13.

The Australian Prime Minister,  Malcolm Turnbull has announced that he and his government will be ‘putting Australians first’ to give them the precedence for the employment opportunities which are presently vacant and are open for the immigrant workers to take.

The Turnbull administration has decided to substitute the skilled 457 visas with a new subclass to provide the citizens of Australia with the priority for the jobs in Australia.

The Prime Minister announced the policy on facebook and said that “We’ll no longer let 457 visas be passports to opportunities which could and should go to Australians. It’s important that businesses still get access to the skills they need to grow and invest. So the 457 visa will be replaced by a new temporary visa specifically designed to recruit the best and the brightest in the national interest.”
