Support For International Students

Student visas lodged outside Australia will re-commence being granted so that when borders re-open, students will already have visas and be able to make arrangements to travel. International students will also be able to lodge a further student visa application for free if they could not complete their original studies due to Covid-19.

Other students studying online outside of Australia will also be able to use that study to count towards the Australian study requirement and students unable to return to Australia can apply for a post-study work visa in their location.

Additional time will also be given to applicants to provide English language results if Covid-19 has disrupted access to that service. Complete a free assessment HERE for further information.

We just wanted to give our clients an update and to assure them that it’s ‘Business As Usual’ at ASC Migration.

Other measure we have introduced is that we are providing additional appointments and after-hours consultations. If you are an existing client and have documents to provide to us, we encourage you to get them certified and send them electronically via your portal.

Working Holiday Visas – Backpackers

In wake of the devasting bushfires in Australia, fantastic new rules for backpackers have been introduced whereby they can stay with the one agricultural employer for up to one year, instead of the usual maximum of six months. They’ll also have the opportunity to stay in Australia for three years if they take on extra agricultural work.

This is a great opportunity if you are thinking of heading Downunder.

January 16, 2020

Two new regional visas have been introduced which require migrants to commit to life in regional Australia for at least three years which opens to the door to permanent residency and citizenship.

New laws will give these new regional visa holders similar access to welfare and government services as permanent visa holders.

The 2 new skilled regional provisional visas are;

  1. A) Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa – for people nominated by a State or Territory
    government or sponsored by an eligible family member to live and work in regional
  2. B) Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa – for people sponsored by an
    employer in regional Australia

To be eligible for permanent residence, holders of the new skilled regional provisional visas will need to show they have lived and worked in regional Australia while holding one of these visas.

Regional employers will have access to:

  1. more regional occupations to sponsor migrants to work in regional Australia
  2. priority processing of regional visa applications
  3. additional points for certain points-tested migrants who are sponsored to settle in regional Australia.

DESIGNATED REGIONAL AREAS

There are two categories of designated regional areas:

  1. Cities and major regional centre
  2. Regional centres and other regional areas

Both categories have access to regional incentives:

  1. access to the dedicated 25,000 regional places
  2. priority processing of regional visa applications
  3. access to the Regional Occupation List – more jobs compared to non-regional lists and
  4. international graduates with a bachelor or higher qualification from a regional campus of a registered institution will be eligible for an extra year in Australia on a Temporary Graduate visa
