New Work Visa Rules Could Hinder Expats

Living & Working In China

Jobseekers could find it harder to land expat assignments as the US, Australia and New Zealand bring in new expat visa rules. Temporary skilled worker laws are facing change.

Australia announced that the Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (known as the 457 visa) will be abolished and replaced with a new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa in March 2018.

New Zealand has similarly changed its visa rules. It has said it will tighten access to its skilled work visas.

The USA has put in place multiple measures to deter and detect work visa fraud and abuse.
