The Australian government has announced sweeping changes to the 457 visa program from 19 April 2017. However, the changes will not only have a direct influence on 457 visa applicants and employers, but also on various Australian skilled visas, in particular, the 186 Employer Nomination Scheme visa, also known as the employer sponsored permanent resident visa.
However, the news is that foreign CEO’s who had applied for permanent residency before 1 July and are awaiting approval from the Immigration Department will no longer be impacted by the retrospective application of the Government’s new permanent residency rules.
Under the new rules, CEO’s annual wages of above $180,000 and who are under the age of 45 years will be able to apply for a permanent skilled visa.
