The 457 Visa – The Federal Government Report and Response
The 457 Visa has been subject to considerable revision since its inception in 1996. It is aimed at highly skilled migrant workers, many of whom ultimately transition to permanent residency. The Federal Government has just released its report ‘Robust New Foundations’ which was authored by an independent review panel, chaired by John Azarius. It is anticipated that over the coming weeks the Government will announce its reform intentions for the 457 visa program.
Please join the Adelaide Law School’s Dr Joanna Howe to hear her explain the report and its ramifications for Australia’s temporary labour migration program. There will also be comment from Associate Professor Alexander Reilly. Both are experts in temporary labour migration and have published widely in this area.
