Fragomen Australia Webinar: Countdown to the March 2018 immigration reforms - Are you prepared?

During the second half of this year, the Australian Government has progressively released further information regarding the final tranche of reforms to be implemented in March 2018 in respect of the new Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) visa and employer sponsored permanent residence program.

This webinar will provide an overview of these recent developments, highlight the areas that are yet to be clarified by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and outline some of the practical considerations for businesses to prepare for the changes.

Please join Fragomen's Australian Practice for this webinar as we discuss:

• Transitional arrangements for certain 457 visa holders to apply for permanent residence under existing pathways
• The new Skilling Australians Fund Levy and how this will be administered
• Labour Market Testing and International Trade Agreement exemptions
• Renewal restriction in respect of occupations on the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) and impact on workforce planning
• Increased compliance focus with the new 'naming and shaming provisions', data sharing arrangements and tips for developing a robust immigration compliance program
