- Current 457 visa holders will be 'grand fathered'. Won't be affected

- No permanent residency afterwards

- 200 fewer sectors eligible for work visas

Any information about those whose applications have already been submitted and are under process ?

Will those applications still be processed or they all stand cancelled ?

Cheers

They should go ahead. There'll be a sunset date for the current category and new rules

along with the 457 ban he did mention about putting Australians First, does this in anyway affect the current applications for residency ?

Nothing mentioned in today's announcement but that seems to be the general direction. There will be changes to that too in coming months

Worrisome trend indeed! Another instance of Australians walking on the road laid by Americans. It was Trump who first proposed Americans first. Now it their turn to say Australians first.

On the surface these are all populist measures to pacify public sentiments which is against foreign workers/immigration on the whole.

Hope this doesn't affect people like us who have been patiently waiting in the queue.
