Clamp down on 457 visas announced

    Recommended Posts

    Not sure how many of you come in on a 457 visa, but this article was in today's paper (23/2/13).

     

    I used to work at a company that abused the 457 visas, not to get low paid workers in, but to employ certain people. They specifically used to write the job advert for the skills of the person they wanted to bring in and made it very specific and then would say to the Australian Government, hey look we advertised but we could not get anyone, I am sure they are not the only ones doing it!!!!

    Thanks for this, we are currently applying for a 457 but OH is very highly qualified/skilled and has a reputable sponsor, we submitted last Saturday and they are already processing us, just need to give them one more piece of paper - Fingers Crossed! Don't be too downheartened folks, I think this is just to stop people abusing the system.
