Better Deal for Skilled Migrants to Australia

Here is what was reported in the Weekend Australian Financial Review today –

Skilled migrants already working in Australia on temporary work visas (457 visas) will soon find it easier to gain permanent residency (PR) under changes announced by the Minister for Immigration

Holders of 457 visas will not have to resit tests to assess their trade or skills or their English language skills to gain their PR.

PR will be gained either via the Employer Nomination Scheme or the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS).

Permanent employer sponsored visa places account for 39% of the total skilled migration program for 2011-12.  The RSMS program allows Australian employers to sponsor workers for PR to fill skilled full time job vacancies in their businesses.

Businesses across the economy are still experiencing skill shortages in key occupations, especially those in demand by sectors such as engineering and the skilled trades.

If you have a skill that is currently in short supply in Australia, this is a good time to apply for a work visa.

Sponsored Workers Get More Protection

Here is some interesting breaking news.

The Australian Government has recently brought in some new laws to give more protection to overseas workers being sponsored under temporary work visas by Australian Employers.

The new laws, being made under the Migration Legislation Amendment (Worker Protection) Act 2008, will commence on 14 September.

The changes will include –

  • A stronger definition of sponsorship obligations of Australian Employers;
  • Permit information sharing  between government agencies;
  • Expand the power of the Department of Immigration to monitor and investigate possible non-compliance of Australian Employers with worker protection laws;
  • Civil Penalties for Australian Employers who are found to be in breach of their sponsorship obligations.

What does this mean for migration agents?

It means that any agent who does not ensure that he or she has a sound understanding of the new legal and regulatory changes will not be able to properly advise and explain to a worker or employer client what the sponsorship obligations cover and how the new monitoring regime will work. Employers wishing to sponsor skilled overseas workers MUST be on top of the new laws.

Once again – all this goes to show that it is more important than ever to only use the services of very experienced and skilled migration visa agents.

We are ready to serve and protect your best interests – whether you be an employer wishing to sponsor or a worker looking to be sponsored by an Australian Employer.
