Australia – New Requirement: Labor Market Test for Subclass 457
December 9, 2013
Anticipated Effective Date: 23 NOV 2013
Category: Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa (Subclass 457)
AUSTRALIA NEWS: As of November 23, 2013, companies filing for foreign workers under the Subclass 457 visa category will be required to submit evidence of a test of the labor market prior to submitting a position nomination for the worker. Details on the new requirement are yet to be clarified, including a list of exempt occupations, and specifics on evidence required to demonstrate a compliant test of the labor market.
Government Link: http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/457.aspx
Background: The Temporary Work (Skilled) Subclass 457 visa allows skilled foreign workers to come to Australia and work for an approved business for up to four years. Before the Subclass 457 may be filed, the business must be an approved sponsor and file a position nomination for the applicant. Businesses may sponsor the visa applicant if they cannot find an Australian citizen or permanent resident to perform the skilled work.
Watch for a list of exempt occupations to be published.
Watch for further details on compliance with labor market testing requirements to be published.
For assignments to Australia through the 457 category, plan ahead for the additional processing time and approval required for a labor market test.
