We received a number of great questions from HR professionals and business owners during our recent seminar on the 457 visa changes.
Click through to find out what Interstaff’s registered migration agents had to say about the new English requirements, how working holiday visas can lead to a transition to skilled visas, and possibilities to renew 457 and Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) visas.
- “Is the Government essentially saying that if you can’t pass the English test you won’t get a visa?”
- “Is the Immigration Department looking at introducing the new English requirements for permanent resident applications as well?’
- “Following the new short and medium-term arrangements for 457 visas, has the government mentioned any likely flow-on impacts to working holiday visas?”
- “Does your business have to be based outside of Perth to sponsor an employee for an RSMS or a 187 visa?”
- “Is it possible for an employee to apply for a subclass 400 visa to test if they liked the work before applying for a long-term or permanent visa?”
- “Can a 457 or Temporary Skilled Shortage Visa (TSS) visa be renewed more than once under the Short Term Stream?”
