Top scientists in Australia have rejected the shameful changes to Australia 457 visas as several leading science research positions are being avoided by brilliant overseas scientists. This is because of the series of changes that have been made effective to the Australia 457 visas.
The medical sector in Australia is claiming that the changes to the Australia 457 visas affected by the government of Australia have caused much embarrassment to the nation. At least six institutes in Australia have witnessed job offers being declined by brilliant overseas scientists according to one of the leading medical researchers. Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes President Tony Cunningham has expressed grave concerns regarding the changes to Australia 457 visas.
The federal government had removed hundreds of jobs from the list of eligible occupations in April 2017, as quoted by the Workpermit. On the other hand, hundreds of jobs have been included in the restricted list. This restricts the visa validity to 2 years from 4 years and curbs any pathway to Australia PR.
Mr. Cunningham said that in several cases the immigrant talents who arrive in Australia are matchless. Thus all efforts must be done attract and retain them. The inventor of papilloma virus vaccine Ian Frazer from Scotland is an example of this added Mr. Cunningham.
Tony Cunningham further elaborated that change to Australia 457 visas will cause harm to the medical sector in Australia. The talented people will exit from Australia amidst excellent funded research projects remaining incomplete after two years, added Mr. Cunningham.
A researcher from the US Sarah Palmer has been residing in Australia for last five years. Dr. Palmer is working towards developing a cure for HIV and said that just a stay of 2 years would not have been convincing to move to Australia. Dr. Palmer added that the nature of research in which she is involved just cannot be completed in a time period of 2 years and any research plans cannot adhere to this.
