    On 14 October 2014 the Australian Federal Government released its response to a review of the 457 visa program (Review). The Government has said that it will implement a number of recommendations made by the Review, including a relaxation of the English language requirements and a streamlining of the application process.

    We attach below a brief article explaining the Review’s most important recommendations, the Government’s response and an assessment of the points that we believe to be of most interest.
