Submission to the 457 Programme – Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold (TSMIT) Review

The Australian agriculture sector experiences key disadvantages in accessing skilled workers in the 457 visa programme, including through the application of the TSMIT which is a significant barrier to eligibility. This submission outlines the experience of the agriculture sector in relation to the 457 visa programme, and in particular how revision of the TSMIT in its application to regional, rural and remote Australia can support a more skilled agricultural workforce.
