The famous Australian airline, Qantas in agreement with the coalition government will recruit new 76 foreign pilots to support the increased ongoing skill shortage crisis. The agreement was incorporated last month to address the skill shortage of pilots and instructors in Australia for up to four years.
This agreement will benefit foreign pilots to be able to avoid the two-year restriction that was applied for applying permanent residency visa.
The airline is currently conducting the biggest training program since its inception. Also, the airline problems have been started due to inability of recruiting instructors, following the government’s decision to restrict foreign pilots for 2 years.
The new labour agreement will now allow the airline to bring in foreign pilots and instructors without any restriction to take role as pilot instructors and low-level propeller-based aircraft.
The pilot visa stay is valid for four year in Australia and after that the Australian government has confirmed that the skilled workers will be able to apply for Australia PR.
Qantas spokesperson has peddled the change as an important change towards Australia’s rural aviation industry that is continuously suffering from a significant skills shortage. He further added this agreement allows us to temporarily bring in a limited number of simulator instructors and experienced pilots from overseas to support one of the biggest training programs we have done in our history.”
Well, the similar labour agreement has been into existence since 1989 in Australia and has only begun momentum from the business community over the last year. Additionally, the abolishing of 457 visa program, increased restrictions on pathways to permanent residency and mass removal of occupations from demand list and introduction of new sponsorship requirements have also been the factors of Australian Permanent Residency.
Along with Qantas, there have been other companies that are granted similar labour agreements by the Department of Immigration. This includes Inpex Australia- currently running Ichthys LNG project-the Sydney based fine dining restaurant Aqua dining and beef exporter Teys Australia.
The immigration experts in Australia observed that labour agreements are becoming a popular option for employers following the scrapping of visa subclass 457 programs.
Therefore, skilled worker program are great way to combat the labour requirement of Australia
