Grandfather existing 457 visa applications and transfer requests.

This petition had 354 supporters

I believe those people who submitted new 457 visa applications, or submitted requests to transfer existing 457 visas to new employers pre April 19th 2017, should have their applications processed in line with the visa requirements pre 19th April 2017. The fact that currently, these applications are not to be Grandfathered is wholly unfair, particularly for those who are already in Australia and looking to transfer to a new employer. These people are fully established into the Australian community, often with children in school and having financially committed themselves to integrating into Australia. The failure to Grandfather these applications is clearly moving the goalposts and will have a devasting impact on many families.
