The Australian government warns people who abuse the 457 skilled visa scheme will be treated as harsh and as same as the way the OZ government treats people smugglers.
Immigration Minister Morrison stated: “If you abuse it, then you can expect me…to be as tough on that as those people smugglers will find that I will be tough on our borders.”
“If the 457 program is abused, it will be undermined, and its critical values to Australia will be diminished.” Also, addressing employers to help the government in using the 457 visa scheme properly.
The Labor Government, earlier this year, has launched a strict law on the 457 skilled visa. Saying that subclass 457 was being abused by employers who do not prioritize locals in filling up job vacancies.
