The Legal and Constitutional Affairs References Committee released a report in April 2019 that addressed the effectiveness of the TSS Visa for dealing with the skill gaps in Australia. The following recommendations were made:

  1. The minimum income threshold should be increased to $62,000 annually
  2. Review and update the health policies so that temporary migrants are not rejected on health grounds
  3. The Government should publish reasons for the addition and deletion of occupations on the SOL for greater transparency
  4. There should be greater scrutiny into licensing and skills assessment
  • Authorization through considerable investment

The new Government has announced a new category to become an accredited sponsor for the TSS Visa. The business will need to show an investment of at least $50 million.
