nz citizens in australia

 

The Turnbull government has adopted a new “Australians first” approach to skilled migration, announcing it will abolish the controversial 457 visa program for temporary skilled migrants. Kiwis in Australia already feel threatened and confused as our visa requirements are constantly having the goal posts moved & pathways changed.

Is this an example of how easily New Zealand Citizens living in  Australia could be treated in the near future? Turnbull continues to say…

“We are putting jobs first, we are putting Australians first,” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said. “We are an immigration nation, but the fact remains that Australian workers must have priority for Australian jobs.

The scheme will be replaced by two temporary skills shortage visas that will impose tougher English language tests, stricter labour market testing, at least two years of work experience and a mandatory police check.

“Australian workers must have priority for Australian jobs, so we are abolishing the 457 visa, the visa that brings temporary foreign workers into our country. We will no longer allow 457 visas to be passports to jobs that could and should go to Australians.”
