Immigration Minister Peter Dutton says they're targeted at those who think domestic violence is OK when it's not.

The old visa programme will now be replaced with two new schemes that will put restrictions and make the laws stringent than earlier.

Australia plans to raise the bar for handing out citizenships by lengthening the waiting period, adding a new "Australian values" test and raising the standard for English language as part of a shake up of its immigration programme.

He said employers must demonstrate they have tested the local jobs market properly before they apply for foreign workers under his new scheme.

"We are putting jobs first, we are putting Australians first. we are an immigration nation but the fact remains that Australian workers must have priority for Australian jobs", Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Facebook.

Mr Goudie acknowledged that some businesses might "exploit the system", but said he had employed industrious workers on skilled working visas who went on to become valuable contributors to society.

"457 visas have a place, we use them in the hairdressing industry because there is a major shortage", he said.

Promoted Brighton back among England's elite
Perhaps the pick of those good players is Anthony Knockaert , victor of the Championship Player of the Year award. But sometimes, you just have to wait for that moment of pure joy and today, Brighton seemed to get it.

According to the Federal Government, the number of eligible jobs for the visas will be cut from 651 to 435, with application fees to increase. The current 4-year work visa program, 457 visa program [materials], which allows workers from overseas to live in Australia with their immediate family, will be abolished [BBC report] and will be replaced by two temporary visas that carry additional obstacles. They can recruit cross-border talent if a job cannot be filled locally.

Pauline Hanson, leader of the One Nation party, said Turnbull was "finally acting on the suggestions I made to him about the citizenship test".

If an applicant fails the test three times, they will have to wait for two years before they are allowed to attempt the test again.

"This is tinkering at the edges and it's unlikely there will be any real change", he said.

"The government is in touch with the governments of the United States and Australia on these matters and is also making full assessment of impact of these recent changes, in consultation with all stakeholders", he said.

As with the 457 programme, the H-1B is technically a non-immigrant visa meant for temporary employment of foreign workers with specialised skills.

He signed the so-called Buy America, Hire America order on a visit to a tool factory in the USA state of Wisconsin, though it falls far short of his campaign pledge to end the H-1B visa programme.
