Default Australian Government to stop 457 Visa for skilled migrants

Australia’s Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has announced this morning (17th April) that the 457 Visa for skilled migrants is to be withdrawn.


Mr. Turnbull said that two new Visas will replace the 457, stating that “Australians must have priority for Australian jobs.”


The two replacement programs will make employment in the country for migrants temporary, lasting between two to four years, and applicants will face tougher criteria for eligibility. The list of jobs on offer will also be cut.
