“457” Occupation List to be further reduced
The Occupation List containing jobs which will qualify for a 457 visa will be further condensed, according to Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton.
Those with an occupation on the list and obtains sponsorship from an employer are eligible for a 457 visa for up to four years in order to fill shortages.
Increasing pressure faced by the Minister led to confirmation that the occupation list will be reviewed and further culled. This is also amid the Minister’s pledge to put “Australia-first” as Immigration proves to be a recurring agenda on the Australian political front.
