From Morning Report, 6:41 am on 8 April 2024

Immigration Minister Erica Stanford says changes to a key work visa scheme will curb unsustainable levels of migration and cut down on exploitation.

A raft of changes for the Accredited Employer Work Visa Scheme will take effect from Monday.

Migrants applying for some roles will now need a minimum of English and employers will be required to engage with Work and Income for some roles.

Stanford spoke to Corin Dann.
