Με το καινούργιο σύστημα (Skill Select) μπορεί κάποιος να πάρει sponsorship από συγγενή, επιπλέον από grantparent ή first cousin. Αυτό ισχύει μόνο για Designated Areas of Australia και για μια συγκεκριμένη βίζα την 489.

Skilled - Nominated or Sponsored (Provisional) (subclass 489) visa (http://www.immi.gov.au/skills/skillselect/index/visas/subclass-489/)
Designated Areas of Australia – Professionals and other Skilled Migrants – Workers – Visas & Immigration (http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/designated-areas.htm)

Αναφέρω εδώ κάποιες σημαντικές αλλαγές στο σύστημα της μετανάστευσης με skilled visa που μπορεί να μην έχουν γίνει αντιληπτές από τους ενδιαφερόμενους.

New requirement to be invited to apply
Intending migrants will have to submit an Expression of Interest through SkillSelect and be
invited to apply for one of the new visas.
Location requirements broadened
Intending migrants, including dependent family members, may submit an Expression of
Interest, be invited to apply, apply and have their application decided while in or outside
Australia.
Australian study or recent work experience requirements removed
The recent work experience and Australian study requirements will be removed as eligibility
requirements, though will remain as factors for receiving points under the points test. ,
Revised eligible visa requirements
Where the intending migrant is lawfully in Australia when lodging their application, it will no
longer be necessary for them to hold a particular prerequisite visa, such as a student visa.
People who hold a substantive visa, or a bridging visa A, B or C, will be eligible to apply if
invited, provided they meet the other eligibility requirements.
Basic eligibility requirements
Many of the current points tested skilled migration visa basic requirements will continue
under the new visa regime. At the time of invitationthe intending migrant (and their
spouse/defacto partner if claiming points)
-must be under 50 years of age
-must have at least competent English
-health, character and Australian values requirements must also continue to be met.

http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/points-tested-visas.pdf

Το σημαντικότερο απ'ολα είναι οτι δεν χρειάζεται πλέον να έχεις πρόσφατη προυπηρεσία για να μπορείς να αιτηθείς βίζα. Ακόμα δλδ και ένα άνεργος τα τελευταία 2 χρόνια μπορεί να αιτηθεί βίζα. Επίσης έχει αλλάξει και το point system και πλεον απαιτούνται 60 και όχι 65 πόντοι για ορισμένες βίζες όπως η 189,190 & 489. Επομένως το σύστημα γίνεται αρκετά ποιο ευνοικό για πολλούς πιστεύω!

Καλή επιτυχία σε όλους!

Παρακαλούνται οι φίλοι αναγνώστες να μην απαντήσουν στο αρχικό post, με διαφωνίες, παρατηρήσεις ή σχόλια αλλά μόνο εαν έχουν να προσθέσουν πληροφορίες σχετικά με τις αλλαγές στον μεταναστευτικό νομο.
Επίσης καλό θα ήταν όποιος κάνει τον κόπο να γράφει για τις αλλαγές να παραθέτει και link προς τις σελίδες απο τις οποίες διάβασε τις νέες αλλαγές ώστε να υπάρχει και η σχετική επαλήθευση.
Να θυμάστε οτι πολλοί συν-πατριώτες μας θα προσπαθήσουν να πληροφορηθούν για τις νέες αλλαγές, και οι περισσότεροι δεν θα γνωρίζουν σχεδόν τίποτα απο την σχετική ορολογία ή διαδικασίες, ετσι όποιος επεξηγεί κάτι καλό θα είναι να θεωρεί οτι οι αναγνώστες δεν έχουν καμία γνώση του αντικειμένου και ετσι να εξηγεί τα πάντα απο την αρχή.

***Τα μηνύματα που δεν είναι σχετικά με το αντικείμενο αυτού του θέματος θα μεταφέρονται στο ερωτήσεις σχετικά με την μετανάστευση.

Strengthening the integrity of the 457 program (http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/strengthening-integrity-457-program.htm)
The purpose of the 457 visa program is to enable employers to fill skill shortages by recruiting qualified overseas workers where they cannot find appropriately skilled Australians.
The 457 visa is a temporary visa, intended for filling short to medium term skill shortages, in a quick, flexible way to meet business needs. The program contains a number of in-built protections to prevent local workers' conditions from being undercut and overseas workers from being exploited.

Possible Subclass 457 changes for 1 July 2013

The Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Visas) Bill 2013 which contains the framework for changes to the Subclass 457 expected to commence on 1 July 2013, is now before Federal Parliament.
The following is a summary of the amendments contained in the Bill.
NOTE: this Bill has not yet been passed and these may not be the final amendments.
Schedule 1 of the new Act - Purpose of temporary sponsored work visas
New Section 140AA of the Migration Act sets out that the purpose of a temporary sponsored work visa [the 400 series visas, which includes Subclass 457]:
to address genuine skills shortages without displacing employment and training for Australian citizens and permanent residents and “without the temporary sponsored work visa program serving as the mainstay of the skilled migration program”.
Ensure rights of sponsored workers
Impose obligations on sponsors to ensure:
- sponsored workers are protected
- the program is not used inappropriately
enable monitoring, detection, deterrence and enforcement in relation to any inappropriate use of the program
Schedule 2 of the new Act – Labour Market Testing
Labour market testing is defined as: in relation to a nominated position, means testing of the Australian labour market to demonstrate whether a suitably qualified and experienced Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident is readily available to fill the position.
Labour market testing is required for the approval of a nomination if:
• the approved sponsor is in a standard business sponsor]; and
• the sponsor nominates an occupation for the purpose of 140GB(1)(b); and
• a particular position, associated with the nominated occupation, that is to be filled by a visa holder, or applicant or proposed applicant for a visa, identified in the nomination; and
• it is not inconsistent with any international trade obligations of Australia [these may be indentified in legislative instrument]
Labour market testing will be satisfied if:
• The Minister is satisfied that the approved sponsor has undertaken labour market testing within a period [to be in a legislative instrument]; and
• The nomination is accompanied by evidence of that testing, and
• The evidence consists of one or more of:
Information about sponsor’s attempts to recruit suitably qualified and experienced Aust citizens or permanent residents to the position and any other similar position
- Advertising (paid or unpaid) commissioned or authorised by the sponsor
- Information about the sponsor’s participation in relevant job and career expositions
- Details of fees and other expenses paid (or payable) for any recruitment attempts
- Details of the results of recruitment attempts, including any position filled as a result
Copies of, or references to, any research released in the previous 6 months relating to labour market trends generally and in relation to the nominated occupation;
Expressions of support from Commonwealth, State and Territory government authorities with responsibility for employment matters;
Any other type of evidence determined by the Minister in a legislative instrument.
Labour market testing exemptions
Major disasters, natural or otherwise, where the Minister determines that it has such a significant impact on individuals that a government response is required, and, an exemption is required to assist disaster relief or recovery.
If a relevant bachelor degree and or 5 years experience is required for the nominated position AND the nominated occupation is specified in a legislative instrument
If a relevant associate degree, advanced diploma or diploma covered by AQF and or 3 or more years of relevant experience is required for the nominated occupation AND the nominated occupation is specified in a legislative instrument
Schedule 3 of the new Act - Subclass 457 visa conditions
Condition 8107(3)(b) and(3B)(b) will be changed to read:
If the Subclass 457 visa holder ceases employment with the sponsor, they period which they cease employment must not exceed 90 consecutive days. (up from 28)
This applies to visas in force before the commencement of this Act.
Schedule 4 of the Act – Sponsorship obligations
Sponsorship obligations set by the Minister may apply to all approved sponsors and former approved sponsors [no regulations for this yet] and must include, but is not limited to:

(a) paying a market salary rate (however described) to a visa holder;
(b) paying prescribed costs to the Commonwealth in relation to locating a former visa holder, and removing a former visa holder from Australia;
(c) paying prescribed costs of the departure of a visa holder (or a former visa holder) from Australia;
(d) complying with prescribed requirements to keep information, and provide information to the Minister;
(e) notifying the Department of prescribed changes in the circumstances of an approved sponsor, a former approved sponsor, a visa holder or a former visa holder;
(f) cooperating with the exercise of powers under or for the purposes of Subdivision F (which deals with inspector powers);
(g) ensuring that a visa holder participates in an occupation, program or activity nominated by an approved sponsor (including by preventing the on hire of a visa holder);
(h) requiring an approved sponsor or former approved sponsor not to transfer, charge or recover prescribed costs;
(i) requiring an approved sponsor or former approved sponsor to meet prescribed training requirements.
Schedule 5 of the Act - Enforceable undertakings by sponsors
[this applies to sponsorship obligations which arose before or after the commencement of this new Act]
Currently Section 140K (Sanctions for failing to satisfy sponsorship obligations) says that the Minister may bar sponsors from doing certain things or cancel the sponsorship approval.
The new Act will also allow the Minister:
to accept and undertaking under 140RA from the person to take specified action; or
to refrain from taking specified action;
or to provide a written undertaking to take specified action to ensure sponsorship obligations are not contravened
or if the person has breached an undertaking, apply for an order from an eligible court directing a person to comply with an undertaking, or to pay the Commonwealth an amount up the amount of any financial benefit they gained from a breach or to pay compensation to another person who suffered loss or damage as a result of a breach.
Schedule 6 of the new Act – Sponsorship inspection powers
Inspectors include Fair Work Inspectors
The powers of inspectors (as specified in Section 140X of the Migration Act) will include investigating whether a person who is required under subsection 140H(1) to satisfy a sponsorship obligation has committed an offence, or contravened a civil penalty provision, under Subdivision C of Division 12 of this Part.

Changes to Visa Pricing Arrangements (http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/new-visa-charges-1july2013/faqs-clients.htm)

From 1 July 2013, applicants might be required to pay the following charges when they lodge their visa application:

Base application charge – this charge is the amount a main visa applicant will have to pay for their visa application.

Additional applicant charge – this charge will be paid by each additional applicant included in or added to a combined visa application (unless an exemption applies). The amount varies according to the age of the applicant and the visa subclass. This charge is added to the base application charge, the main applicant does not pay the additional applicant charge.

Non-internet application charge – a charge of AUD80 will apply for selected visas when the option to lodge and pay for the application online exists through our online service at Department of Immigration & Citizenship (http://www.immi.gov.au), but you choose to lodge a visa application using a paper visa application form, including fax, email, lodgement through a Service Delivery Partner (SDP), or in person. This charge is paid per application not per person.

This charge will initially be applied to the following five visa subclasses and more will be progressively included:
155 Five year Resident Return Visa
157 Three month Resident Return Visa
417 Working Holiday
476 Skilled (Recognised Graduate)
485 Temporary Graduate.

Subsequent temporary application charge – is a charge of AUD700 that you might need to pay when you lodge a visa application for certain temporary visas when you are in Australia.

This charge does not apply to the first visa that is granted when you are in Australia.


Why is the department introducing new charges?

The pricing restructure will bring Australia's visa pricing in line with similar countries such as Canada, the United States of America and the United Kingdom.


How are the new charges applied?
The new charges apply to most visa subclasses. From 1 July 2013, the charges that apply for a visa will be determined by:

the number of applicants in a combined application
the age of the individuals included in a combined application
the method used to apply for an application (by the Internet or paper or in person)
the application is lodged in Australia or outside Australia
previous visa application history.

How do I find out which charges apply to the visa I am applying for?
The Visa Wizard (http://www.immi.gov.au/visawizard/) and the proposed Visa Pricing Table (http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/new-visa-charges-1july2013/_pdf/visa-pricing-table.pdf) are tools you can use to assist you in determining the total charge of your visa application.

I submitted my visa application before 1 July 2013 and I have just heard there are new charges. Will I have to pay the new charges?

A valid visa application lodged and paid in full with the department before 1 July 2013 will not be affected by the changes to visa pricing.
Note: A visa application is not valid until we receive the correct total of the visa application charge. If less than the correct charge is paid, we cannot commence processing your visa application until the correct charge is received.

Why does my child have to pay the new additional applicant charge?
From 1 July 2013, the additional applicant charge will be applied to each additional visa applicant where there is more than one visa applicant in a combined visa application, unless an exemption applies.

I only had to pay a single fee for my visa and now I want to extend it and will be charged for everyone on the application. Why do I have to pay a different charge for this visa?
The new charges apply to all applicable visa applications lodged on or after 1 July 2013. This applies to new visa applications and extensions to current visas.


I added my child to my application after I lodged the original application. I have been advised that I must pay another charge for my child and the application will not be processed unless I pay the charges, why is this?
All applicants added to an application for a visa that is lodged on or after 1 July 2013 must pay the additional applicant charge, if it is applicable to that visa subclass.

Dated 05 August 2013

Quentin Bryce

Governor‑General

By Her Excellency’s Command

Tony Burke

Minister for Immigration, Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship''


LI 2013 No. 228 Regulations as made
This regulation amends the Migration Regulations 1994 to increase the revenue associated with Visa Application Charges (‘VAC’) except for Student (Temporary) (Class TU) visas and Tourist (Class TR) visas from 1 September 2013.
Administered by: Immigration and Citizenship

Εν ολίγοις ,με τροπολογια με ημερομηνια 5 Αυγουστου -που ανακοινωθηκε στις 7 Αυγουστου-αποφασιστηκε η αυξηση για τις τιμες των αιτησεων για βιζα ,εκτος της φοιτητικης και της τουριστικης και θα ισχυσουν απο 1 Σεπτεμβριου ,2013.

Οι αυξησεις φαινονται εδω (http://www.comlaw.gov.au/Details/F2013L01534), αλλά επειδη οπως τρεχει κανεις τις τροπολογιες ,οταν δεν εχει τον νομο μπροστα του ,δεν μπορει να καταλαβει σε ποιες βιζες αναφερονται-εκτος κι αν ηδη ξερει την τρεχουσα τιμη ,οποτε βλεπει και την μελλοντικη π.χ οποιος ξερει την σημερινη τιμη της onshore partner visa $ 3975 , καταλαβαινει οτι στην onshore αναφερεται η πιο κατω τροπολογια

98 Subparagraph 1124B(2)(a)(vii) of Schedule 1 (table item 1)Omit “$3 975”, substitute “
$4 575”- ,

απλα αναφερω οι αυξησεις θα ειναι της ταξης του 15% για τις περισσοτερες αιτησεις .Ηδη ειχαν αυξηθει στις 1/7/13 για τις περισσοτερες βιζες, οποτε ειχε ξεκινησει και η επιπλεον χρεωση στις περισσοτερες βιζες για τα επιπλεον μελη ,που μπαινουν στην αιτηση, οπως μπορει να δει οποιος διαβασει απ το ποστ 21 και μετά ,αυτου του θρεντ.

Βρηκα στο διαδικτυο τον πιο κατω πινακα που καποιος ανεβασε σημερα ,8/8 -η τροπολογια χθες ανακοινωθηκε- και εχει καποιες βιζες και τις σημερινες και μελλοντικες τιμές απο 1 Σεπτεμβριου 2013..(Η Working Holiday Visa ,δεν ισχυει για Ελληνες ,αλλά την αφησα οπως την ειχε ο πινακας.) Στο site του DIAC ,δεν ανεβηκε ακομα κατι σχετικο ,σχετικα με την τροπολογια που ανακοινωθηκε χθες απ το υπουργειο for Immigration, Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship.

Η α τιμή ειναι η σημερινη ,η β-κοκκινη- απο 1/9 και η γ το ποσόν της αυξησης.Αν θα αυξηθουν και οι τιμες για τα επιπλεον μελη που μπαινουν στην αιτηση ,θα δειξει οταν ενημερωσουν το site του DIAC.





457 Temporary Worker (Skilled) $900 $1,035 $135

Partner (Onshore) $3,975 $4,575 $600


Partner (Offshore) $2,680 $3,085 $405



General Skilled Migration $3,060 $3,520 $460

Working Holiday $365 $420 $55


Contributory Parent 2nd VAC $42,220 $48,550 $6,330


υ.γ μπορει να μην ανεβηκε ακομα στην σελιδα του DIAC το οτι θα αυξηθουν οι βιζες-εκτος της φοιτητικης και τουριστικης- απο 1/9/13 , συμφωνα με την τροπολογια που υπογραφτηκε κι ανακοινωθηκε χθες, αλλά θεωρησα οτι θα ηταν καλο να το πληροφορηθουν οσοι σκοπευουν τωρα κοντα να καταθεσουν αιτηση ,για να μην τους πιασουν οι αυξησεις .

Υπενθύμιση προηγούμενης ανακοίνωσης....


Όλες οι χρεώσεις αιτήσεων για βίζα (visa application charges) ανεβαίνουν κατά 15% 1/9/2013 (εκτός student & visitor). Η αύξηση είναι επί των σημερινών τιμών μετά τις αυξήσεις που έγιναν 1/7/2013.
Αναμένονται νέες αυξήσεις 1/1/2014.
Καλό όμως θα είναι να μην γίνει το παραπάνω κριτήριο αποφάσεων....Βεβιασμένες αποφάσεις μπορεί να στοιχίσουν τελικά περισσότερο από τις αναμενόμενες αυξήσεις.

Non-Contributory Parent and Other Family visas are closing to new applications. (http://www.immi.gov.au/Live/Pages/certain-family-visas-closure.aspx)

(Στο πιο πάνω link του DIBP ,μπορει να γραφει ,οτι ''The date of cessation will be announced shortly'' ,αλλά ηδη υπογραφτηκε απο τον υπουργο μεταναστευσης ,το σχετικο Migration Amendment ,που παρατεθηκε στο πιο πάνω post και ορίζει ως ημερομηνια παυσης ,την 2 Ιουνιου ,2014 ).

Further to the announcement in the Budget papers, we will close the following visa subclasses in the Family Stream of the Migration Programme to new applications:

Parent visa-Non Contributory (subclass 103)
Aged Parent visa- Non-Contributory(subclass 804)
Aged Dependent Relative visa (subclasses 114 and 838)
Remaining Relative visa (subclasses 115 and 835)
Carer visa (subclasses 116 and 836)


Other options for parents to come to Australia

Parents will continue to have the option of applying for a permanent Contributory Parent visa, either Parent visa (Contributory Parent visa ,subclass 143 (http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/143.aspx)) for parents outside Australia or Aged Parent visa (Contributory Aged Parent visa ,subclass 864 (http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/864.aspx)) for parents in Australia. Under these visas, applicants need to pay a higher visa application charge and assurance of support bond than the ★Parent visa (Non-Contributory,subclass 103) (http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/103.aspx) or ★Aged Parent visa (Non-Contributory,subclass 804) (http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/804.aspx)applicants. 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 Contributory Parent (subclass 173) (http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/173.aspx) visa for parents outside Australia and Contributory Aged Parent (subclass 884 (http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/884.aspx)) for parents in Australia.

Alternatively, parents can apply for a long stay Visitor visa which allows eligible parents to visit their children in Australia for regular periods of up to 12 months at a time over an extended validity period. For many families, temporary stay provides greater flexibility without the need to wait in a queue for years for a permanent visa.

Options for other family relatives to come to Australia

Relatives of Australian citizens and Australian permanent residents other than partners, children and parents who want to migrate to Australia need to satisfy requirements for entry as a skilled migrant. All intending migrants interested in the points based skilled migration or business investment and innovation visa programmes need to submit an expression of interest for a skilled visa. Overseas relatives might also be eligible for a Visitor visa, where they can show that the purpose of their visit is to assist with the short-term care needs of a seriously ill relative who is an Australian citizen or permanent resident.Standard Visitor visa requirements must be met, including that the applicant genuinely intends only a temporary stay in Australia.

In-demand trades added to the Skilled Occupation List (http://www.minister.immi.gov.au/media/mc/2014/mc215271.htm)

Monday, 09 June 2014

Joint media statement with Andrew Robb – Minister for Trade and Investment, and Michaelia Cash – Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection.

Chefs, bricklayers and wall and floor tilers will be added to the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) (http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/sol.pdf)from July 1 to help meet the skills needs of the Australian economy, as announced today by the Minister for Trade and Investment, the Hon. Andrew Robb, and the Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Senator the Hon. Michaelia Cash.

Minister Robb said the Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency (AWPA) works independently of government to provide annual recommendations on the composition of the SOL to ensure it responds to Australia's changing skill needs.

'The AWPA analyses evidence such as the labour market, education and training, migration and general economic and demographic data to make sure we get the balance right,' Minister Robb said.

'In this case, bricklayers and tilers have been added to the list because of an increase in demand predicted for these occupations as well as a decrease in apprenticeship completions.'

Minister Cash said the addition of chefs to the SOL reflects that the occupation is in short supply, coupled with strong growth projected in the café and restaurant sector.

'Including chefs on the SOL will provide greater flexibility for businesses to recruit skilled chefs from overseas when they cannot source these skills locally,' Minister Cash said.

'The addition of these occupations will be especially welcomed in regional areas, where there is a known deficit of skilled workers in the hospitality and construction industries.'

The SOL is used for people applying for the independent or family sponsored points tested visa or temporary graduate (subclass 485) – graduate work stream. Before prospective migrants can apply for independent skilled migration, they must submit an expression of interest via SkillSelect.

No existing occupations are being removed from the SOL, which currently lists 188 occupations that Australia needs.

New validity requirement for skills assessments (https://www.immi.gov.au/News/Pages/new-validity-requirement-skills-assessments.aspx)


DIBP NEWS 19 JUN 2014


New validity requirement for skills assessments

From 1 July 2014, if a skills assessment is mandatory as part of a visa application, that assessment will only be valid for a period of three years from the date of issue, unless a shorter validity period is specified on the assessment.

A skills assessment must be valid at the time of lodgement for the following visas:

Direct Entry stream of the Employer Nominated Scheme (subclass 186) visa
Direct Entry stream of the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (subclass 187) visa
Graduate Work stream of the Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa.

A skills assessment must be valid at the time of invitation to apply through SkillSelect for the following visas:

Skilled—Independent (subclass 189) visa
Skilled—Nominated (subclass 190) visa
Skilled Regional (Provisional) (subclass 489) visa.
These changes do not affect the Temporary Work (Skilled)(subclass 457) visa.


p.s However, if the skills assessment specifies that expires sooner than 3 years, the shorter validity period would apply.

The following 2 examples illustrate how this will work from 1 July 2014:

Paula has an ACS skills assessment which has an expiry date of 1 September 2014. She will not be able to use the skills assessment after 1 September 2014 as this is the expiry date given on the skills assessment.
Jim has an ICAA skills assessment which was issued on 5 November 2011 and has an expiry date of 5 November2016 (a period of 5 years). He will not be able to use it to apply for a visa after 5 November 2014 as skills assessments are valid for a maximum of 3 years.
If you lodge prior to 1 July, there is no expiry date for skills assessments. The change affects all applications lodged on or after 1 July 2014.

Visa Evidence Charge (VEC) Doubles

The Visa Evidence Charge will more than double from 1 July, increasing from $70 to $150.
The Visa Evidence Charge is the cost of having a visa label put into your passport. Visa Evidencing is generally not required these days because Immigration can verify your status electronically.

The Visa Evidence Charge is payable if a person requests a visa label affixed to their passport as evidence of visa grant. The increase reflects the Governments attitude towards a shift toward digital services. Online verification of visa is now widely used and accepted in Australia.

Though there is no announcement as yet, it is quite likely that application fees for most visa types will also rise by approximately 5% from 1 July 2014.

p.s Australia is now visa label-free. This means you do not need a visa label in your passport to travel to, enter or stay in Australia.

Increase in Partner Visa Application Charge (http://www.immi.gov.au/News/Pages/increase-in-partner-vac.aspx)

Starting from 1 January 2015 the Partner Visa Application Charge (VAC) is going to increase in price.​​​
​​
How much will a Partner or Prospective Marriage visa cost?

There has been a 50 per cent increase to most partner Visa Application Charges. We are unable to provide you with an estimate of your fees as this amount will vary based on your circumstances. Updated pricing information is available through the visa pricing estimator. (http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/Pricing-Estimator.aspx)

What subclasses are affected?

This change will apply to permanent Partner visa subclasses (combined 309/100 and 820/801) and the prospective marriage visa (subclass 300).

What if I have already lodged my application?

The new fee will apply to Partner visa applications lodged on, or after 1 January 2015.
This increase will not affect you if you have lodged a valid application prior to 1 January 2015.

What other options are available if I can't afford the increased VAC?

You might consider applying for a visa under the skilled stream, which generally has quicker processing times. Visit our SkillSelect area on our website to see if there is a skilled visa option for you.

Why has the cost of a partner visa been increased?

This was a decision made by the Government in order to fund whole-of-government policy priorities.

Can I receive financial assistance to pay the VAC? Can the VAC be waived?

The department does not offer any financial assistance to visa applicants. You might consider seeking assistance from family and friends or a financial institution. The VAC is a substantial cost for most couples to bear, it is a legislative requirement that the visa application charge be paid for the application to be valid. No assessment of a visa application can be made before the appropriate charges have been paid. Furthermore, there is no provision to waive, reduce, or pay a Partner or Prospective Marriage VAC in instalments.

How can I lodge a Partner visa application before 1 January 2015?

You should lodge your Partner visa application online via ImmiAccount as this service will be available over the Christmas/New Year Period. You will also have quicker confirmation that your application has been lodged and you will be able to track the progress of your application online.

*Last modified Tuesday 23 December 2014







INCREASE IN PARTNER VISA APPLICATION CHARGES by 50%.

The DIBP has officially announced the increase to take effect as of 1/1/2015:

On-Shore (820/801) applications from $4575 to $6865

Off-shore (390/100) applications from $3085 to $4630

**New website - border.gov.au**

As of 1 July 2015, we say goodbye to our well known "immi" :smile_: and the website for the Department of Immigration & Border Protection will be
www.border.gov.au

1 July 2015 the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service are integrating into a single organisation - the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and the Australian Border Force will be established within the Department.



1 July 2015 email addresses will change from '@immi.gov.au' or '@customs.gov.au' to '@border.gov.au'.





To support the integration, a new website will be launched at www.border.gov.au. From this date, internet searches for immi.gov.au and customs.gov.au will redirect to the new address.

Design
The new website will combine information from the Department and ACBPS websites and include new information about the ABF.

The website will have a new look and feel and will be optimised for mobile devices. There will be ongoing updates to the website after 1 July 2015.

Some pages will automatically redirected to the new location. You will need to fix any broken links, bookmarks or favourites in your system from 1 July 2015. The new URLs to specific web pages will not be available before this date.

Content
Some other websites owned by the Department will remain in their current form. These include the Minister's and Assistant Minister's websites, the Translating and Interpreting Service website and the Office of the MARA website.

Content from other sites owned by the Department will be integrated with the new website. For example, products and information on citizenship.gov.au and cargosupport.gov.au will be moved to the new website.

Email addresses
As part of this change, the Department's email domain will change to firstname.lastname@border.gov.au. While information sent to existing @immi.gov.au and @customs.gov.au email addresses will be delivered to the intended recipients at border.gov.au, please update your contact details for the Department on 1 July 2015.

Applications
Applications that are currently accessed using the immi.gov.au or customs.gov.au websites, such as ImmiAccount, VEVO, ICS or the Customs Connect Facility, will not be affected by this change and will continue to function as normal.

Until 1 July 2015, feedback or questions can be provided using the online feedback form.​​​​​​​​​​​

Medical practitioners in regional Australia – Age exemption (http://www.border.gov.au/News/Pages/Medical-practitioners-in-regional-Australia-age-exemption.aspx)

Department of Immigration and Border Protection


Medical practitioners in regional Australia – Age exemption



To attract and retain vital health services in rural areas, there is an exemption to the age requirement for eligible medical practitioners who are 50 years of age and over, work in regional Australia and who want to apply for subclass 186 visa and subclass 187 visa.

From 1 July 2015, the age exemption available to medical practitioners in regional Australia will no longer require employment with the same employer while holding a Temporary Work (skilled) subclass 457 visa or a Medical Practitioner (temporary) subclass 422 visa.

Medical practitioners who are applying for a subclass 186 or subclass 187 visa must demonstrate at least four years employment in the nominated occupation. These medical practitioners must demonstrate that at least two years of the required four years employment was located in regional Australia and the nominated position will also be located in regional Australia.

Subclasses 570, 571, 572, 573, 575 and 580 removed (holders of these visas will maintain their visa until its expiry).
(2) Assessment Levels removed. All applicants one assessment level.

(4) Financial capacity required for grant of visa, increased for primary applicant and accompanying family members. Evidence required for all applicants.
(5) Minimum English language test scores (e.g. IELTS, TOEFLiBT, etc) required for ALL studies, except registered ELICOS courses.

Further updates on matters reflected in the changes to take effect as of 1 July 2016.
Under the new simplified student visa framework:
Level of evidence for financial capacity and English language proficiency that a student is required to provide with their visa application will be based on the immigration risk outcomes associated with the student’s education provider and country of citizenship.
Risk ratings will NOT be published, but an online tool is intended to go live on 1 July 2016 and education providers, students and agents will be able to access the online tool at any stage of the visa application process.
Applicants who have completed a substantial component of a course leading to an AQF qualification at the CIV level or higher, conducted in Australia in English while holding a student visa MAY be exempted from the English proficiency evidenciary requirement.
Please note the above are NOT the only required criteria to be met.
All applicants will continue to have to meet all other core visa criteria, such as the Genuine Temporary Entrant requirement and health and character criteria.

On 18 April 2017, the Government announced that the Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457 visa) will be abolished and replaced with the completely new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa in March 2018.
The TSS visa programme will be comprised of a Short-Term stream of up totwo years and a Medium-Term stream of up to four years and will support businesses in addressing genuine skill shortages in their workforce and will contain a number of safeguards which prioritise Australian workers.
This new visa is part of the Government’s significant reform package to strengthen the integrity and quality of Australia’s temporary and permanent employer sponsored skilled migration programmes.
Key reforms include:


Introducing the temporary skill shortage visa with new requirements, including but not limited to:

new, more targeted occupation lists which better align with skill needs in the Australian labour market
a requirement for visa applicants to have at least two years’ work experience in their skilled occupation
a minimum market salary rate which ensures that overseas workers cannot be engaged to undercut Australian workers
mandatory labour market testing, unless an international obligation applies,
capacity for only one onshore visa renewal under the Short-Term stream
capacity for visa renewal onshore and a permanent residence pathway after three years under the Medium-Term stream
the permanent residence eligibility period will be extended from two to three years
a non-discriminatory workforce test to ensure employers are not actively discriminating against Australian workers
strengthened requirement for employers to contribute to training Australian workers
the Department of Immigration and Border Protection will collect Tax File Numbers and data will be matched with the Australian Tax Office’s records, and
mandatory penal clearance certificates to be provided.


Tightening eligibility requirements for employer sponsored permanent skilled visas, including but not limited to:

tightened English language requirements
a requirement for visa applicants to have at least three years’ work experience
applicants must be under the maximum age requirement of 45 at the time of application
strengthened requirement for employers to contribute to training Australian workers, and
employers must pay the Australian market salary rate and meet the Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold1.


Concessions for regional Australia will continue to be available:

Employers in regional Australia will continue to have access to occupations under the temporary and permanent visas, to reflect their skills needs.
Existing permanent visa concessions for regional Australia, such as waiving the nomination fee and providing age exemptions for certain occupations, will be retained. Consideration will be given to expanding the occupations in regional Australia that are exempt from the age requirement.


Significantly condensing the occupation lists used for skilled migration visas, including the subclass 457 visa, from 19 April 2017.

The implementation of these reforms will begin immediately and will be completed in March 2018.
Further information on reforms is available:


The media release regarding the changes is available at Minister for Immigration and Border Protection (http://www.minister.border.gov.au/peterdutton/2017/Pages/putting-australian-workers-first.aspx) website.
Fact sheets that provide more detail about the reforms are available at:

Επιπλέον για την έκδοσή της θα απαιτείται η προηγούμενη εμπειρία στο επάγγελμα που βρίσκεται στην λίστα εκείνων που έχουν ζήτηση στην Αυστραλία.

Σαρωτικές αλλαγές στην χορήγηση αυστραλιανής υπηκοότητας


20 APR 2017 - 3:32 PM

Αυστηρότερες προϋποθέσεις θα απαιτούνται για την χορήγηση της αυστραλιανής υπηκοότητας, σύμφωνα με τα όσα ανακοίνωσε σήμερα το πρωί από την Καμπέρα, ο Αυστραλός πρωθυπουργός, Μάλκολμ Τέρνμπωλ.

Το γνωστό σε όλους μας τεστ αυστραλιανής υπηκοότητας που απαιτείται τα τελευταία χρόνια (μετά από απόφαση της τότε κυβέρνησης Τζων Χάουαρντ) αναμένεται να γίνει δυσκολότερο.

Πλέον θα εξετάζεται το κατά πόσο οι υποψήφιοι για υπηκοότητα έχουν ενσωματωθεί και συμβάλλουν στην κοινωνία, αλλά και την συμπεριφορά που έχουν αυτοί έναντι της ελευθερίας στο θρήσκευμα, αλλά της ισότητας των δύο φύλων.

Έμφαση στις αυστραλιανές αξίες
Στις εξαγγελίες που έκανε έξω από το Κοινοβούλιο στην Καμπέρα, ο Μάλκολμ Τέρνμπωλ είπε πως η έμφαση θα δοθεί στις αυστραλιανές αξίες που αποτελούν την καρδιά κάθε υπηκόου, λέγοντας πως η ιθαγένεια είναι προνόμιο.

"This is about strengthening the Australian values which are at the heart of citizenship, of being an Australian citizen. Australian citizenship should be honoured, cherished ... it is a privilege. And when people apply to be Australian citizens, they honour us, of course, because they're offering to join our Australian family. But, equally, it's important that they understand that they are making a commitment to our Australian values."

Τι προβλέπουν οι αλλαγές

**Σύμφωνα με τους νέους κανόνες, η περίοδος μόνιμης παραμονής πριν από την πολιτογράφηση θα επεκταθεί στα** τέσσερα χρόνια,** σε σχέση με τον έναν χρόνο που είναι σήμερα.

Όσοι τώρα αποτύχουν τρεις φορές στο τεστ, τότε θα πρέπει να περιμένουν για περίοδο δύο ετών, πριν το επιχειρήσουν και πάλι.

Μετανάστες με ιστορικό ενδοοικογενειακής βίας η συμμετοχής σε οργανωμένο έγκλημα δεν θα έχουν το δικαίωμα να πολιτογραφηθούν Αυστραλοί.

Επίσης οι υποψήφιοι πρέπει να αποδεικνύουν πως συνεισφέρουν στην κοινωνία με την εργασία τους, πως είναι μέλη κοινοτικών ομάδων και πως στέλνουν τα παιδιά τους σχολείο.

Κριτήριο και τα αγγλικά
Σημαντικό ρόλο στην χορήγηση αυστραλιανής υπηκοότητας θα καθορίσει και η γνώση της αγγλικής γλώσσας.

Μέχρι σήμερα χρειαζόταν ένα βασικό επίπεδο γνώσης αγγλικής. Αυτό όπως αλλάζει μετά τα όσα ανακοίνωσε ο πρωθυπουργός στην Καμπέρα.

**Πλέον θα απαιτείται υψηλότερο επίπεδο γνώσης (IELTSlevel 6), όπως δήλωσε και ο υπουργός Μετανάστευσης, Πίτερ Ντάτον.

"There's a significant change in relation to the English-language requirement, which, at the moment, is basic. We increased that to IELTS level 6 equivalent. So that is at a competent English-language proficiency level. And I think there would be wide support for that as well."

Σόρτεν: «Ο πρωθυπουργός προσπαθεί να σώσει τη δουλειά του»
Έντονη κριτική στις εξαγγελίες του πρωθυπουργού άσκησε ο αρχηγός του Εργατικού Κόμματος, Μπιλ Σόρτεν.

Μιλώντας στο ABC, ο κ. Σόρτεν είπε πως οι αλλαγές που ανακοίνωσε η κυβέρνηση αφορούν περισσότερο τον πρωθυπουργό και όχι το καλό της χώρας.

«Ο Μάλκολμ Τέρνμπωλ προσπαθεί να σώσει την δική του δουλειά», ανέφερε, ξεκαθαρίζοντας πως για το Εργατικό Κόμμα το ζήτημα αυτό δεν είναι καινούργιο και πως στο σύστημα θεωρήσεων αδειών παραμονής, υπάρχουν πολλά προβλήματα.

Επιπλέον ο αρχηγός του Εργατικού Κόμματος επισήμανε πως ο πρωθυπουργός προσπαθεί να αποτρέψει την ανατροπή του από τους βουλευτές του, χαρακτηρίζοντας την κυβέρνηση διχασμένη.

"Mr Turnbull's just trying to save his own job. See, for Labor, this is not a new issue. We said before the last election there were rorts in the visa system. We said before the last election more needed to be done on apprenticeships. Now we've seen nothing done on those matters since the last election. The only thing which Malcolm Turnbull's worried about is keeping his unhappy backbench from rolling him.* It'saverydividedGovernment."

Λίγα λόγια για το τεστ αυστραλιανής υπηκοότητας
Το τεστ αυστραλιανής υπηκοότητας σήμερα περιλαμβάνει 20 ερωτήσεις πολλαπλών επιλογών και για να το περάσει κάποιος με επιτυχία, πρέπει να απαντήσει σωστά στο 75% αυτών.

Τουλάχιστον 13.000 άνθρωποι από περισσότερες από 200 χώρες του κόσμου, πολιτογραφούνται Αυστραλοί κάθε χρόνο.

http://www.sbs.com.au/yourlanguage/greek/el/article/2017/04/20/citizenship-tests-undergo-series-changes?language=el

"The government has said the changes will apply to those applying for citizenship **on or after 20 April 2017, **the day the government announced the changes to citizenship law.

Changes to the citizenship legislation will be introduced into parliament after receiving responses during the public consultation which is open until 1 June 2017. "

http://www.sbs.com.au/yourlanguage/punjabi/en/article/2017/04/20/new-citizenship-test-heres-what-changing

"The Coalition will have to pass the changes through Parliament but if they do, those who apply for citizenship from today will be subject to the new rules."*

The SOL (Skilled Occupations List) which identifies occupations that would benefit from skilled migration for the purpose of meeting the medium to long-term skill needs of the Australian economy, currently has 183 occupations.
The composition of the list is reviewed annually under the responsibility of the Department of Education and Training, with submissions open October-November and the new list comes into effect on the 1st July of the following year.
Occupations are flagged when there is emerging evidence of excess supply in the labour market in the medium-to-long term.

In the 2016-17 SOL there are about 50 occupations which are ‘flagged’ for possible removal in the future.

https://www.education.gov.au/flagged-occupations-sol-2016-17

If you are planning on applying for a visa requiring a SOL occupation, it is highly recommended that you lodge your visa application prior **to 1/7/2017 if your circumstances permit this. Removal of an occupation from SOL does not affect visa applications (not expressions of interest) lodged prior to the date of the removal of the occupation.

Australian visas to cost more from 1 July 2017

For the first time, visa fees will be indexed annually in line with the forecast consumer price index.

All the Australian visas will be more expensive from 1 July this year.

Treasurer Scott Morrison, in his budget speech, announced that visa fees will be indexed in line with inflation to generate $410 million over the next four years.

This means, from 1 July 2017, the fee for all the visas will rise in line with the forecast Consumer Price Index and become more expensive.

Visa fees will be indexed annually and rounded off to the nearest $5.

The indexation only applies to the 1st instalment of the visa application fee for both primary and secondary applicants. Indexation does not apply to the second instalment of the visa fee.

The student visa fee for the primary applicant will rise $10 and cost $560 instead of $550. An adult dependent applicant will have to fork out $420 after 1 July 2017, up from $410.

Visas under the Employer Nomination and the Regional Sponsored Migration Schemes will cost $70 more at $3670, instead of $3,600.

Partner visa fee is also rising from $6,865 to $7,000.

The minimum points required change from 60 to 65 as of 1/7/2018

The 65 point criterion is applicable to all the General Skilled Migration Programs namely:

· Australia Skilled Independent Visa Subclass 189

· Australia Skilled State Nominated Visa Subclass 190

· Australia skilled regional provisional visa subclass 489

This change has been done because Australia is in a position to select highly skilled and qualified workers who show interest in living and working in Australia as a permanent resident.

Therefore, only those applicants who possess high calibre and interest in skilled migration program will be invited. This may affect other migrants who wanted to get state sponsorship and were only planning to pass the earlier required immigration mark of 60 point.
