Foreign workers to be accessed easily by employers of Northern Territory

The Government of Australia will simplify the process towards hiring guest workers for Northern Australia employers as the gas project has created shortage in labor.

Northern Territory has been approved choice under the first alleged ‘designated area migration agreement’.

The agreements have been planned to release businesses exterior to resource industry to employ semi-skilled workers without having to fulfill the tough requirement of language, training and salary compared to other migration programs.

According to the spokesperson for Assistant Immigration Minister, Michaelia Cash said that the agreement of Territory will be set up soon. However, Pilbara deal will be established by this year end.

 The guideline of the draft suggests that local councils and chambers of commerce and state governments will be authorized to nominate the participating employers and sponsor the agreements.

Chief executive of NT chamber of commerce, Greg Bicknell said the chosen area of migration agreement was to extend the program of 457 visas to allow people to come under wider scope of occupations.
