'457 visa' stay suspended in Australia
'457 visa' stay suspended in Australia

Going through some major changes in their reforms Australia has declared, "457 visa programs for skilled foreign workers to limit their ability to look for another job after their official employment ends". Along with Indians, immigrants across the globe staying there will be severely affected by this step of Australian government.

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton on Wednesday said, "From November 19, 2016 the period that a subclass 457 visa holder may remain in Australia after their employment ceases will be reduced from 90 days to 60 days."

"The change is expected to assist in ensuring that the 457 programme met its intent of acting as a supplement to, rather than a substitute for, Australian workers apart from reducing the vulnerability of 457 visa holders, who were only permitted to work for an approved sponsor and were not eligible for unemployment benefits, from entering into informal employment arrangements." he added.
