Removal of the Labour Market Testing (LMT) Requirement to Advertise on the Workforce Australia Website

On 11 December 2023, Migration (LIN 18/036: Period, manner and evidence of labour market testing) Instrument 2018 has been​ updated to remove the requirement for employers to advertise on the Workforce Australia website. This change will apply to subclass 482 and 494 nomination applications, and will allow employers greater flexibility in relation to how they undertake LMT.


At the same time, clarifying text has been incorporated into the updated instrument which indicates that nominated positions may be advertised over two or more overlapping periods totaling a minimum of 4 weeks.


This change is an immediate outcome of the Government’s Migration Strategy.
