A Coalition opens way for foreign chefs, bricklayers & tilers – 01 July 2014

THOUSANDS of foreign chefs, bricklayers and tilers will no longer have to be sponsored by employers to obtain permanent visas, as the Abbott government eases skilled migration rules to address alleged labour shortages.

Under changes backed by business groups, the three professions have been added to the Skilled Occupation List from July 01, 2014 meaning these workers will be able to apply for a permanent visa without requiring a sponsor.

Non Contributory Parent visa options – Closed on 02 June 2014

On 2 June 2014 the government introduced significant changes to the Other Family visas & therefore will no longer accept new applications for the Aged Parent (Residence) visa (subclass 804) & Parent (Migrant) visa (subclass 103).

However parent visas can be lodged by using the contributory category which costs substantial amounts of money to the visa applicants & their sponsors.

Remaining Relative & Carer visa options – Closed on 02 June 2014

These visas were permanently closed to new applications on 2 June 2014
