Proposed red tape slashing!

The Migration Institute of Australia has called for the government to ensure the correct balance on overseas skilled work visas.

The strain between protecting the local workforce and allowing support from foreign workers has intensified with the rising local unemployment figures. Given the geographically widespread population of Australia and the local country-to-city migration of workers, it is inevitable that we rely on foreign migration to ensure the strength and development of the economy.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) has recently considered a review of the Skilled Migration and Temporary Activity Visa Programs to allow for short term 12 month mobility visas and a substantial slashing red tape.

We fully support efficiency within the DIBP – provided that is not at the expense of overseas workers – as demonstrated recently in Tasmania where an employer was paying a visa holder less than $1.35 per hour.

We will keep you posted on any developments on cuts on red tape within the system as they arise. Watch this space!
