Visa 457 Changes: Have your say

    Chamber's News  | 

    Message from Frank Ribuot, President of FACCI NSW and CEO of Randstad

    On 18 April 2017, the Government announced that the Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457 visa) will be abolished and replaced with the completely new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa in March 2018.

    The TSS visa programme will be comprised of a Short-Term stream of up to two years and a Medium-Term stream of up to four years and will support businesses in addressing genuine skill shortages in their workforce and will contain a number of safeguards which prioritise Australian workers.

    This new visa is part of the Government's significant reform package to strengthen the integrity and quality of Australia's temporary and permanent employer sponsored skilled migration programmes. But it also means that, under these new conditions, many migrant workers will no longer have any prospect of getting permanent residency.

    The Migration Council says the change has serious implications, and some businesses are warning it could make it harder to convince skilled migrants to travel to Australia. In response to these concerns, and in collaboration with Amcham, we have polled our members and already made a couple of submissions to the Department.

    We are also involved in a number of face-to-face meetings taking place with senior representatives of Peter Dutton's cabinet. To strengthen the business community and the Chamber claims, we encourage you to submit your own cases, concerns and suggestions on the Borders and Immigration website.

    Your submission will become part of a larger petition from the business community and will help support our lobbying actions on this issue. Should you wish to gain access to the papers jointly submitted by Amcham and FACCI, please contact Matylda Delbar at matylda.delbar@facci.com.au or 02 9099 1320.
