Northern Australia To Acquire Access To Foreign Workers Easily

11 Aug 2014


Immigration News

Australian Government will make it easy for employers in Northern Territory to bring in guest workers as the Ichthys gas project costing $34 billion would create shortage of labor in the Top End.

The Northern Territory has been chosen for approval under the first supposedly ‘designated area migration agreement’ followed by Pilbara in Western Australia.

This agreement has been intended to disentangle business exterior to the resources industry to employ semi-skilled workers, who are not required to fulfill the strict language, salary and language as required for other programs of migration.

According to spokesperson for Assistance Minister of Immigration and Border Protection, Michaelia Cash said that the Territory agreement would be established soon, while the Pilbara agreement would be set up by the end of 2014.

The draft of the guidelines states that local councils, chambers of commerce and state governments will be allowed to nominate the participating employers and sponsor the agreements.

Employers will be allowed to aim concessions on language requirements of English, minimum salaries and skill benchmarks.

Chief executive officer of NT Chamber of Commerce, Greg Bicknell said that the designated migration agreement was to extend 457 visa program to allow people to bring them under a wide variety of occupations.

He said that Retail managers, plant operators, chefs, restaurant supervisors, bus drivers should be the occupations that have to be placed in the agreement.
