Abolition and replacement of the 457 visa

On 18 April 2017, the Government announced that the Temporary Work (Skilled)(subclass 457) visa  would be abolished and replaced with the completely new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa in March 2018.

The Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457) visa is now closed to new applications and the new Temporary Skill Shortage visa (TSS) (subclass 482) is now available.

This new visa is part of the Government's significant reform package to strengthen the integrity and quality of Australia's temporary and permanent employer sponsored skilled migration programs.

More detailed information is available on the TSS visa page.
