Written by on with 0 comments

Listen to this webinar hosted by both Maria Hrambanis of SIRVA and ImmiAdvisor on the latest Australian Immigration changes to the temporary and permanent skilled visas. Find out exactly what the abolishment of the 457 visa means for you.

Since the recording of this webinar, DIBP have confirmed grandfathering arrangements for PR applications under the Employer Nomination Scheme for those that held a subclass 457 visa (or had applied) as at 18 April 2017.
Subclass 457 visa holders (or applicants) as at 18 April 2017 will be exempt from the following requirements (which will come into effect in March 2018) under the Temporary Residence Transition stream:
– Requirement to be under 45 years of age at time of application (ie. current age requirement of under 50 years of age at time of application will apply)
– The eligibility period of 3 years (ie. current 2 year requirement will apply)
– 3 years relevant work experience
