Implementation of Labour Market Testing for 457 Visas

Last Friday the Government finally proclaimed the official implementation date for labour market testing of subclass 457 visas: 23 November 2013.

For many employers, this will mean providing evidence of attempts to recruit Australians for a nominated position. While some occupations will be exempt, the list of exempt occupations has not yet been specified.

If you are considering making a subclass 457 application, you might avoid some measure of regulatory burden by lodging your application before that date. If you are making an application after that date, we invite you to consult one of our immigration lawyers to ensure your application meets this new requirement.
