Expert review of the 457 temporary skilled migration income threshold

Mr John Azarias has been appointed to undertake an evidence-based review of the Temporary Skilled Migration Incomes Threshold (TSMIT).

The review was recommended by the Independent Review into Integrity in the Subclass 457 Programme.

The review will consider a range of issues including the factors that should determine the settings, the appropriate base level, and the roles of indexation and regional concessions for the TSMIT.

The TSMIT defines the salary threshold for jobs that can be filled by a 457 visa holder and is designed to protect Australian workers and ensure that visa holders are undertaking skilled employment.

The Government has brought forward the review as part of an agreement with the Opposition to ensure the passage through Parliament of legislation to implement the landmark China-Australia Free Trade Agreement.

Mr Azarias will provide a report to Government at the end of April 2016. As recommended by the 457 Integrity Review, the TSMIT will be retained at $53,900 until the findings of the review are considered by Government.
