Fragomen Australia Webinar: Countdown to the TSS Visa - Latest Update

The much anticipated new Temporary Skills Shortage (subclass 482) visa (TSS) will commence in early March 2018, replacing the Subclass 457 visa program and introducing a training levy for employer sponsored visas. Reforms to the permanent employer sponsored visa programs will also take place at that time to tighten the eligibility requirements.

So what do we know so far about these reforms?

Please join Fragomen's Australian Practice for a webinar update on the latest news as we countdown to the implementation of the TSS visa, the session will cover:

• Skilling Australians Fund levy
• Labour Market Testing requirements
• Transitional arrangements for existing sponsors and 457 visa holders
• Renewal restrictions for some TSS visa applicants
• RSMS and ENS amendments

You will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the session.

Please note that this is one of two webinars Fragomen will be hosting. The second webinar will follow once legislation has been released.
