Streamline Processing of 457 Visas Next Year

The Australian government announced changes on two visa programs taking effect next year – the sponsorship visa (subclass 457) and the investor visa. Sponsorship visa (457 subclass) Generally, it should become easier for the business to hire overseas workers on a sponsorship visa. The processing of all three parts – sponsorship, nomination and visa applications will be streamlined and the focus will be on monitoring strictly the high risk applicants and giving more credit to the low risk applicants. The pay rates and the work conditions remain the same as well as the minimum salary of AU$53,900 ensuring that foreign workers are paid at least the Australian market rates. The minimum wage amount might be reviewed in the next two years. The English language requirement will be more flexible depending on the industry and occupation of the applicant. The sponsorship approvals will extend from 12 to 18 months for start-up businesses. The idea is to help Australian business find qualified work force faster as the scheme is too burdensome for the employers at the moment.   Investor Visa The other change concerns the Australian investor visa. Next year, Australia will introduce a new Premium Investor Visa giving residency after one year to those who invest $15 million. This visa program actually exceeds the current Significant Investor Visa (SIV) giving permanent residency to those who invest $5 million in Australia for at least four years. The investment eligibility criteria will be determined by Austrade in accordance to those areas and sectors of higher priority to the Australian economy.

Australia is Top Spot for Irish

  More and more young Irish people are jetting off to Canada and New Zealand – but Australia still leads the way as the nation’s favourite immigration destination. Migration Index reveals that Dublin, Cork, Tipperary, Donegal and Wexford are the top five “feeder counties” while construction and engineering are the top two industries bringing the Irish abroad. Our statistics show that Canada is growing in popularity and that 18 – 24 year-olds are the ones most likely to apply for working visa abroad. The figures show an increase in the 18 – 24 age group travelling away for work, whereas the fall in the 25 – 34-year-olds  travelling could be accounted for by the fact that people in that age group who have left in the last few years have actually stayed away. The number of people involved in construction emigrating is dropping and is expected to continue to decline over the next few years as the Irish building industry picks up. But although this number in the construction industry will going to fall over the next few years, this industry in places like Australia and Canada continues to grow, so there will always be opportunity for Irish people. We expect a rise in the number of teachers heading off to Canada and Australia. There are currently numerous employment opportunities in this area in Canada, Oz and New Zealand, we believe we’ll see a steady flow of nurses and teachers travelling into 2015.  Visa First is a leading international immigration consulting company.

From Madrid to Sydney

A reciprocal work and holiday visa agreement was signed yesterday between Australia and Spain. It will allow 500 young people from both countries to head overseas on a holiday and be allowed to work or study. It will also give them a great opportunity to discover a new culture and exchange experience. It’s slightly different from the Working holiday visa as you need to have at least functional level of English or Spanish, be supported by your Government or be a tertiary-level student. It’s expected that this agreement will foster people-to-people links and will boost the constructive relationships between the two countries. Both Australia and Spain declared they will work hard in the coming months to bring this visa into effect.  Visa First is a leading international immigration consulting company.

Overseas Migration will Continue to Increase Until 2016

The Immigration Department in Australia expects that the overseas migration will reach about 250,000 by the end of September and will continue to increase by 2016. This forecast takes into account the number of visa grants as well as data from official sources about the Australian and World economic growth. It also counts the immigration policies announced recently. So, here are some figures: the estimated number of student visas will reach 120,000; 44,000 sponsorship visas will be issued to temporary workers; 65,000 visas to working holiday makers, 48,000 people will get tourist visas and 7,5000 other temporary visas. It is expected that 40,000 skilled workers will be approved, 35,000 family visas, 14,500 humanitarian visas and 5,000 other permanent visas will also be granted. Let’s summarize what it is all about: more and more overseas students will be grated visas for Australia. This is a result of the department efforts to introduce post study work arrangements. Thus the overseas students graduating in the country have the chance to remain longer if they are eligible for a temporary Graduate visa upon completion of their study. Working Holiday maker arrivals will keep on fairly steady by 2018. Visitor, skilled and family visas are also expected to remain unchanged, so no dramatic changes are expected here.

Mining and construction topped the 2012 highest wage list last year, with many workers earning more than $2200 a week which is double the pay of 20 years ago. If this sounds like a career path that you wish to take, then you may need to look at the training requirements for engineers. Ordinarily this will include a degree in engineering or a related subject and on the job training. However there are some firms that also encourage apprenticeships for passionate graduates and school leavers.
