In this section of the talk, I talk in overview terms about the Supplementary Labour Scheme.

      No, you must leave. There is no chance to extend your stay or change your employer in country.

      Sorry – no, there’s nothing you can do. The SLS is a standalone programme and you cannot apply to change your status from it.
