Australia 457 visas updates on nominating visa holders

Even as the Australia 457 visas transition to the Provisional Skills Shortage Visa, businesses in Australia will have to adhere to the changed framework for nominating visa holders. The market salary requirements have been strengthened by the Immigration Department. This implies that employers in Australia will have to give extra documents to prove that they are offering visa holders on par salary with local workers.

In order to avoid exploitation of visa holders, employers must now offer the written statement for determining the salary on par with an Australian worker. They must prepare job outlook references and the prospects of the job role with respect to the labor market in Australia.

This extra documentation for nominating visa holders through Australia 457 visas will be required apart from the normal requirements for evidence. It is to ensure that employers adhere to the requirement of offering salary rates as per Australian job market, as quoted by the Interstaff.

Employers in Australia who have filed a nomination for Australia 457 visas from October 1, 2017, will also have to adhere to new standards for labor market assessment. They have to offer extra evidence for having sufficiently assessed the local labor market. The main changes are:

• Copy of appropriate ads that is inclusive of the duration for which the ads were published

• Payment receipts for advertising fees

• Ads must also be accessible across the nation through services such as SEEK for example

• Domestic Hiring Table will no longer be admissible by DIBP for evidence of having assessed the local labor market
