Need short-term skilled workers in Australia now? An Alternative to the 457 Visa

A new Visa is being proposed that will allow companies and businesses to bring their staff to Australia for specialised work for up to a year.

A key feature of this proposed Visa is that it would not require the stringent language and skills testing that the 457 visa requires. This visa would be of maximum benefit to companies and businesses that want to make intra-company transfers that are quick are simple.

This Visa proposes to eliminate the costs and delays associated with the 457 visa.

It will also provide an increase in the flexibility of the visa, allowing short-term workers to work on projects for up to a year, whether they are needed for only one month or 12 months.

If you think you or your business can benefit from the introduction of this Visa, seek a consultation with our Immigration Lawyer to further discuss your options.
