The Australian Government introduces the 457 visa some time ago and today the authorities change the terms and conditions of this program. They were forced to make changes as many criticisms coming from the domestic workforce were brought to the attention of the government of Australia.
Company trading in Australia are allowed to bring in temporary staff from the overseas by this 457 working visa. Staffs from the overseas assist them with the setting up of the new office, setting up a new contract or assisting them in running their Australian operation. The 457 Visa Program is helping the companies moving in Australia which allows them to use the method where they can bring in staff who are fully trained.
The 457 working visa allows the recipient to bring their family to Australia and they are permitted to work in Australia. They can as well apply for permanent residence in country. However, the 457 working visa encounter some difficulties. Abusing the service made by some overseas agents is one of the main problems about this visa system.
Due to some problem arising about the 457 working visa program, the Australian Government decided to change the visa system in October 2007. This change reduces the number of recruitment companies who could bring in short-term staff. Now the Australian authorities keep more control of the system, however, this led to a shortage of skills in various areas of the Australian economy. This shortage of skills is detrimental to the domestic Australian workforce. Market confusion and worsening of skill crisis has been created through recent changes in the 457 work visa program. This is according to the Labour hire agency, Entity Solutions.
