 This PPT explains a number of the recent and approaching developments in employer-sponsored 457 ENS and RSMS visas including: The importance of lodging a whole application  Current process Times for Employer Sponsored Visas  457 Visas - Requests for data processing  Training Benchmark Update  New Occupations Lists from 1 Jan 2018  Transitional Arrangements for ENS/RSMS from March 2018  Training Levies from March 2018

slide 4:

Importance of Complete Applications: ➢ In their Sept skilled Visa E-news Immigration has once more stressed the importance of lodging an entire application for all employer-sponsored visas - together with 457 ENS and RSMS. This would need the application to be a lodge with all needed documents for a choice to be created. In some cases applications are being allotted very quickly and a few migration agents have reported ENS and RSMS applications being refused wherever all necessary documents havent been connected. Lodging a whole application will lead to a decision being created rather more quickly. the time interval for a whole 457visa application is presently three months versus ten months for an incomplete application. In addition requests for priority processing can solely be thought of if the application is decision-ready.

slide 5:

Current processing Times for Employer Sponsored Visas:  Processing times for employer-sponsored visas are longer than was antecedently the case. At the instant the indicative time interval for 457 visas is six months. The indicative time interval for ENS is ten months whereas the time interval for RSMS Direct Entry is currently twelve months. However Immigration has additionally expressed that they are doing allocate cases out of received date order. this could mean that a recently lodged application could be assessed before an application that has been within the system for several months. This makes predicting actual time interval very tough.

slide 6:

457 Visas - Requests for Priority Processing With the increased processing time for visa applications many employers are now requesting priority processing. Immigration has indicated that they are receiving over 1000 requests for priority processing every month. Immigration has indicated that the best way to ensure priority processing is as follows: ➢ Provide a detailed business case for priority processing - a short email is not sufficient ➢ Only complete applications will receive priority processing ➢ It takes at least 2 business days for a priority processing request to be considered

slide 7:

Training Benchmark Update  Major changes were made to the training benchmarks for 457 sponsorship approval and ENS nominations were made on 1 July 2017. If interpreted strictly the new benchmarks would exclude most training methods used by corporate Australia. Immigration has indicated that they are taking a flexible approach to assessing employers against the new benchmarks. In particular:  Training provided to contractors may be considered even if they are not PAYG employees  A proportion of franchise fees paid by a franchisee may be considered if training is provided by the franchisor

slide 8:

New Occupations Lists from 1 January 2018  New occupations lists will apply for 457 visas and possibly for ENS and RSMS visas from 1 January 2018. This may also include new caveats on salary level size of the business and other restrictions on eligible positions. Pending 457 applications which have not yet been decided may be affected by these changes. ENS and RSMS applications lodged prior to 1 January will not be affected by changes to the occupations list.

slide 9:

Transitional Arrangements for ENS/RSMS from March 2018  In March 2018 changes will be made to eligible occupations and required work experience for ENS and RSMS applications. Immigration has confirmed that transitional arrangements may apply to "subclass 457 visa holders or subclass 457 applicants as at 18 April 2017".  As a result these people may still have access to employer- sponsored pathways despite changes which were announced in April.  At this stage we do not have exact details on how the transitional arrangements will work but will confirm as soon as we have further information.

slide 10:

Training Levies from March 2018  Legislation to enact training levies for 457 ENS and RSMS visa applications has been introduced into Parliament. We understand that the training levy will apply to applications lodged from March 2018 and will be substantial. Fees will be payable when lodging the nomination and would be for the entire duration of the proposed 457 periods.  For instance for a large business the levy will be 1800 per year for a 457 visa. In the case of a 4-year 457 visa the total levy may be 4 x 1800 7200. It is not yet clear what will happen to the payment if the nomination is refused or withdrawn or if the employee leaves prior to the end of the 4 years.  The training levy will increase each year with CPI. Caps will apply which set a maximum which is payable - the amount set in the draft legislation is 8000 for 457 visas and 5500 for ENS/RSMS.
