English Language Requirements To Be Eased For 457 Visa Applicants.

28 Feb 2013


Immigration News

Australia Business Coalition has proposed for relaxed English language requirements to the Gillard government.

Industry Association Group also has proposed for migration cap to increase from 190,000 to 200,000 for the year 2013-14.

"Growth in 457 numbers should not be assumed to be a problem but instead an indicator of success," the submission says.

"It is our view that too much tightening of the program carries economic risks."

"It is a giant con to say people won't fly in and fly out for these jobs or that the skills aren't there,"

"(There's) endemic unemployment in regional communities, including indigenous communities. Large redundancies happening in manufacturing, in towns such as Wollongong, Geelong, Newcastle and along the eastern seaboard and you tell me that we can't generate skilled labour for these projects."

 

The present English language requirements are too high for applicants mostly for those without university qualifications.

"These skills are essential in the modern economy and this need will be heightened as we increasingly engage with both the challenges and opportunities of the Asian century and new technology,"

Subclass 457 visa holders can

  • Work and stay in Australia for up to 4 years
  • Family can accompany you
  • No restriction on travel duration and time from in or out of Australia
