Australia has followed suit with the United States and the United Kingdom by dismantling their “Skilled Visa” program. Currently Indians are the largest users of the skilled visa program in Australia and they will be most affected. This would require most people who are seeking visas to attempt to receive the H1-B visa which would in turn require employers to pay higher wages in order for those visas to be granted. Consequently those seeking new work visas in Australia are left with less options.
- Nasscom, be that as it may, said the move ought not majorly affect visas allowed to Indian IT specialists as the Australian government is to a great extent focusing
- This comes even as US President Donald Trump is set to sign an official request gone for checking the current lottery arrangement of granting H-1B visas
- This is likewise a matter we will take a gander at with regards to CECA transactions,” said Gopal Baglay, Spokesperson, Ministry of External Affairs.
“The Australian government is replacing the 457 visa so Australians get priority in hiring for local jobs. The skilled visa category will now be replaced with two new temporary work visa categories, available for two or four years.”
