The Family stream visas are back.

posted Sep 25, 2014, 11:38 AM by Bernie Albano


In June 2014, the relatively affordable "non-contributory" subclass 103 (Parent), subclass 804 (Aged Parent), subclass 114 and 838 (Aged Dependent Relative), subclass 115 and 835 (Remaining Relative) and subclass 116 and 836 (Carer) ceased to exist.

A DIBP spokesman said that the closure of the Parent (non-contributory) and Other Family visas will help free up places in the Family Stream for the migration of close family members. According to the DIBP, parents will continue to have the option of applying for a permanent Contributory Parent visa, either subclass 143 (Parent) for parents outside Australia or subclass 864 (Aged Parent) for parents in Australia.

Under these visas, applicants are required to pay a higher Visa Application Charge (VAC) and Assurance of Support bond than the non-contributory parent visa. It is possible to stagger the costs by first applying for a temporary Contributory Parent visa and then for the permanent Contributory Parent visa. The temporary Contributory Parent visas include the Contributory Parent (subclass 173) visa for parents outside Australia and the Contributory Aged Parent (subclass 884) visa for parents in Australia.

However, on 25 September 2014, the successful passage of a Greens' disallowance motion has overturned the government's attempts to scrap a range of essential, affordable family and carer visas.

"The Senate has voted to keep families living together and looking after each other in Australia," the Greens' immigration spokesperson, Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said.


"The success of this disallowance motion means that thousands of Australian families will have a chance to reunite with relatives from around the world."

 

"The Abbott government should never have scrapped these essential visas, which only serve to keep families together," Senator Hanson-Young said.   "The Abbott government was trying to make family reunion the exclusive preserve of the rich, but this disallowance stopped that from happening."

 

This is certainly good news for those who are planning to sponsor parents and relatives.

Skilled migrants still a priority in visa processing

posted May 14, 2014, 3:30 PM by Bernie Albano

Skilled migrants with job offers will take top priority in the next financial year's immigration programme.

The Skilled Stream will continue to be the focus of Australia's immigration policy with almost 70 per cent of the visas allocated to address Australia's skills needs, including addressing skills shortages in regional Australia.

The 2014-15 migration program provides a total of 190 000 places including 128 550 for skilled migration, 60 885 places for family migration and 565 places for migration under the special eligibility stream.

'This Budget allocates almost 68 per cent of Australia's migration places to skilled migration, and reprioritises employer-sponsored visas,' said Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Scott Morrison.

'With the reprioritisation towards employer-sponsored visas, employers will be assisted in finding workers to fill vital positions where they have been unable to find local workers. This also protects Australian workers, who will have less direct competition from independent migrants who arrive without a guaranteed job.

'The family stream will see more places being allocated for partners and children which together increase by 335 places, in recognition of the strong social and economic benefits of close family reunion, while the number of places in the contributory parent category has also been increased by 500 places.

'The additional 4 000 places in the family stream which the previous government allocated to illegal maritime arrivals have been removed, resulting in a saving of around $267 million.

'This change will provide yet another disincentive for people considering the dangerous boat journey to Australia.

'Changes to the skilled and family stream intakes will provide approximately $35 million in savings,' Minister Morrison said.

In summary

  • The 2014 15 Migration Programme will have 190,000 places and maintain the composition of 128,550 Skilled Stream places, 60,885 Family Stream places and 565 Special Eligibility Stream places.
  • The Family Stream will refocus on meeting the increasing demand for close family reunions. The additional partner and child places will be made available as a result of the cessation of new applications from the other family and parent (non contributory) places. This cessation will also enable faster processing of existing applications.
  • The Government will provide $1.3 million over four years to extend the streamlined visa processing arrangements currently available to students enrolled in bachelor, masters or doctoral degrees at participating universities to students enrolled in Advanced Diploma level Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses at eligible TAFEs and other education providers.        
  • The Government will reverse the Mid Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook 2012 13 measure titled Response to the expert panel — Permanent migration programme — additional family stream places and remove 4,000 places allocated to Illegal Maritime Arrivals in the Family Stream (not previously accounted for in total programme numbers).
  • The Government will achieve savings of $305.2 million (including a reduction in revenue of $112.9 million) over five years, by modifying the size and composition of the 2014 15 Migration Programme.

Education Agents can not give immigration assistance

posted Dec 28, 2013, 6:24 PM by Bernie Albano   [ updated Dec 28, 2013, 7:22 PM ]

What is immigration assistance?

Under section 276 of the Migration Act 1958, 'immigration assistance' is when a person uses knowledge of, or experience in, migration procedures to:

  • help to prepare a visa application
  • advise a visa applicant about his/her visa application
  • help to prepare a document in connection with sponsorship of an applicant or their sponsor
    or
  • prepare for proceedings or represent applicants before a court or review authority.

Education Agents can not give immigration assistance

In Australia, immigration assistance can only be given by people who are registered as migration agents with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA) unless they are exempt. It is a criminal offence for an unregistered person to provide immigration assistance.

Education agents are not exempt persons and therefore must not provide immigration assistance.

What Education Agents can do

Activities not regarded as 'immigration assistance' are:

  • clerical work to prepare or help prepare an application or other document
  • providing translation or interpretation services to help prepare an application or other document
  • advising a person that they must apply for a visa
    or
  • passing on information produced by a third person, without giving substantial comment or explanation.

Only education agents who are also registered migration agents are able to provide immigration assistance.

Skilled migration program 'a success'

posted Feb 15, 2013, 12:14 AM by Caroline Bascara

Australia's skilled migration visas program has been successful, one industry commentator argues, delivering much-needed employment in various sectors.

Michael Easson, chairman of the Ministerial Council on Skilled Migration, wrote in The Australian that government policies have been well suited to tackling the country's changing economic environment.

While he admitted that the temporary 457 visa initiative has been "much maligned", Mr Easson said it has helped fill skills gaps across the nation.

"Western Australia, which has low unemployment and high labour force growth, is the second largest user of the 457 program, which attests to the program's responsiveness to local economic conditions," he stated.

"Employer-sponsored migration is a demand-driven model that places skilled migrants directly in the jobs they need and where locals cannot be found."

Recent statistics from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) show there has been a drop in demand for 457 visas, a downward trend that has been evident since June 2012.

According to the latest monthly DIAC report, there was a four per cent decline in applications for the travel documents between July and November last year, with approvals plummeting 12 per cent during the same period.

The department claimed the fall was due to a reduction in applications from sectors that are traditionally heavy users of the program, such as health care, social assistance and information media and telecommunications.

The chairman said there were 200,000 permanent migrants accepted in 2012-13, with 125,000 of these being skilled, which compared with the 1980s, when the vast majority of those settling in the country were family migrants.

"Skilled migrants fill shortages in the Australian labour market that help our economy grow. They are younger, likelier to be in work and better educated than the average Australian and thus boost participation, productivity and population."

Panel examines feasibility of international student loans

posted Jan 28, 2013, 3:01 PM by Caroline Bascara   [ updated Jan 28, 2013, 3:21 PM ]

The tertiary education industry could soon be set to receive a boost in business if a team of experts are able to find a way to deliver international students with HECS-style loans.

A three-year study is being funded by a $40,000 grant from the Australian Research Council (ARC) into the feasibility of providing foreign nationals wishing to study abroad.

On the team is Dr Bruce Chapman - one of the chief architects of the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) - and chief executive of Universities Australia Dr Glenn Withers.

Their combined experience will be challenged by a complex mix of international business laws, changes to migration visas, subsidies, source of loans and the details of repayment.

The team will need to navigate a number of state regulations regarding the mix of public and private funds being lent to international visitors to come up with a scheme that is profitable to those providing the funds and that boosts foreign exchange numbers.

However, Chapman told The Australian on January 18 that any amount of assistance would be helpful, as many of the 180,000 international students currently in the country have to pay around $20,000 "up front" each year in fees.

Chapman asserted: "If they could find a way of paying it back later, depending on their future income, that would take away a major barrier."

DIAC warns of phone scam targeting visa holders

posted Dec 10, 2012, 4:52 PM by Caroline Bascara

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) is warning that visa holders should hang up the phone on imposters posing as DIAC officials.

A current scheme has been uncovered where fraudulent DIAC personnel are seeking payments from visa holders over "irregularities".

Known targets of this scam are Indian nationals who are holding temporary resident immigration visas.

Other demographics that are also at risk are those on a 457 subclass visa who are working in the information and communications technology sector.

A spokesperson said that the aim of these people is to extract money from holders, who claim to need payment as a penalty for the non-existent oddities with the visa.

The spokesperson commented: "Our investigations team has received information from a number of Indian clients who have been contacted by people claiming to be from immigration-related agencies.

"Conmen claiming to be from fabricated 'immigration' or 'border security' agencies tell targets their visa details are out of date, specifying an identification number."

The representative added that the caller will ask them for their identification in order to 'confirm' their details and then they warn if there is a failure to pay, their visa could be cancelled and they could be sent to prison.

The DIAC is endeavouring to gather evidence domestically and abroad in an attempt to locate and prosecute these people.

Departmental experts say that should someone call you who sounds like they're a part of this scam, tell them they won't be getting any money, that you are aware of their fraudulent activity and you will be contacting the police.

By contacting authorities, there is a greater chance of catching the people responsible.

It comes as Australian Bureau of Statistics data shows that overseas born immigrants have filled a shortage of engineers in the country.

The resources boom is driving the demand for these specialists in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

Stephen Durkin of Engineers Australia said to the ABC that this shortage indicates a problem.

He explained: "There's around about 7,000 engineers last year who came to Australia on a temporary work visa to work as engineers and that figure's roughly tripled in the past seven or eight years.

"As a nation, we're relying on that short-term immigration in order to meet the demand and to do the work on these infrastructure projects."

Extended tourist visa validity and stay for parents

posted Nov 16, 2012, 3:40 AM by Bernie Albano

The proposed Longer Tourist visas for parents of Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents which was announced by the Minister on 4 September 2012 will probably be one of the changes to commence on 24 November 2012.

Extract of DIAC’s press release

Towards the end of 2012, parents of Australian citizens and permanent residents will be able to apply for Tourist visas to visit Australia for longer.

Under this arrangement recently announced by the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Chris Bowen MP, the department will consider granting on a case-by-case basis:

Tourist visas of up to five years’ validity which provide a stay of up to 12 months on each entry to those parents who are outside Australia and are in the Parent (subclass 103) visa queue

Tourist visas of up to three years’ validity with 12 months’ stay on each entry will be considered for parents who are outside Australia and are not in the Parent visa queue.

These changes will allow parents who meet the criteria for a Tourist visa to have regular extended visits with their family in Australia without needing to apply for a new visa on each visit.

Under these more flexible arrangements, in addition to meeting all other Tourist visa requirements, parents will be expected to hold health insurance to cover any healthcare costs during their stay and will have a visa condition limiting applications for further visas while they are in Australia.

Like all tourists, parents granted Tourist visas are expected to maintain extended periods of absence between visits to Australia.

The department is making changes to implement these arrangements by the end of 2012. Further information will be provided on this website when available.

Permanent Migration: The Mainstay of Australian Programs

posted Sep 18, 2012, 11:59 PM by Information Request

Permanent skilled migration is the "mainstay" of Australia's immigration program, Chris Bowen revealed in a speech made earlier this week.

Addressing the Australian Mines and Metals Association Migration and Labour Sourcing Conference in Brisbane on August 2, the minister for immigration and citizenship made the remarks as he commented on the newly-launched SkillSelect online system, which made its debut at the beginning of the new financial year.

"It is early days in terms of assessing [SkillSelect's] performance. But initial signs are good - we have had over 20,000 expressions of interest in the system after just 30 days of use," Bowen revealed, adding that according to his sources, an estimated 1,700 of these candidates are engineers.

As migration agents will know, SkillSelect allows prospective candidates to make an Expression of Interest online to migrate to Australia - this statement includes details about each individual's work experience, skills, training and qualifications, and also allows them to express a preference for working in different regions of Australia.

"For migration categories that don't require employer sponsorship, it provides an efficient way of allocating places in the migration program," he said.

SkillSelect can also support employer sponsored migration avenues - such as the popular 457 visa program - as it can be used to connect employers with talented prospective candidates from all over the globe.

The 457 visa program is designed to provide a responsive solution to skills shortages in the Australian labour market - and is proving particularly useful when it comes to labour demand in the booming mining and construction sectors in Queensland and Western Australia.

Bowen revealed in the same speech that the number of 457 visas approved for work related to the mining industry has risen by 77 per cent - and a new fast-tracked approvals process for visas related to the resources sector has seen processing times slashed to a record low of 13 days.

With more than 800,000 new jobs created across the nation since 2007, Bowen emphasised that migration programs have an increasingly important role to play when it comes to boosting business confidence and investments.

"A government that cares about promoting job creation and economic growth must ensure that skilled migration is calibrated to fill those skills gaps that simply cannot be filled locally," Bowen concluded.
