Changes are a constant in the visa scene. But it’s vital that you stay ahead of them, especially if you’re making plans to travel to the country for whatever the purpose might be. In this blog, we’re bringing you some significant changes made to the 482 visa and the 186 visa. So keep reading.
Big Changes Coming Your Way
We can expect some big changes from the Department of Home Affairs in the employer-sponsored permanent residency program on November 25.
Are you on a Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) 482 visa? Now you can obtain a clear path to permanent residency through the 186 visa programme. But ensure that you stay in the nominated job role.
Less Wait For Permanent Residency
Here’s some good news for TSS visa holders who are sponsored by their employer. You’ll now have to wait only two years instead of three before you’re permitted to apply for the 186 visa. However, you must make sure that you meet the remaining requirements.
More Money For Eligibility
The income threshold for Temporary Skilled Migration has been facing a hike since July 1, 2023. This was an increment from $53,900 to a massive $70,000. This means that to be eligible for some visas, you will be required to earn this amount.
