    Skill Select - EOI Minimum POints now 65

    Just wanted to update everyone re Skill Select https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2018L00920 The minimum points to lodge an EOI will increase on 1st July to 65, so sadly anyone sitting on 60 points who have lodged an EOI will no longer be able to be invited.

    SAF just waiting Royal Assent

    The SAF was passed by Parliament last week and is just waiting Royal Assent to be written into Migration Act and Regulations. There is a short window to lodge Subclass 482/187/186 without the additional SAF contribution. Hurry UP!

    URGENT POTENTIAL PARENT APPLICANTS

    https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2018L00425/Download The Dept of Social Security last week announced changes to the Assurance of Support for Parent visas. There are now income requirements for assurers and now they must meet the financial capacity to offer assurances. These commenced 1 April 2018

    143 parent visa

    Please be aware all potential parent visa applicants that the Assurance of Support will be increasing and also the assurers salary requirements has now gone up. Manyassurers will now not meet the requirements, so a lot of potential parent applications will fail.... Also the contribution is rumoured to be going up consistently from $43600 to a lot more. Must confirm this is the rumour and is supposedly being debated in Parliament in May
  8. Just an update the Skilling Australian Fund (SAF) has not been passed by senate yet so will not be applicable until passed. Therefore anyone looking at TRT for 186 apply NOW! It will cost your employer an additional $3000-$5000 so I cant see many wishing to sponsor when this is introduced

    2 weeks left to lodge 457s/ENS/RSMS

    Hello Perth Poms, remember the 457 will be being replaced in a couple of weeks time by the new TSS visa. As much as the 457 has many pitfalls, it will be looked back on fondly by many who will no longer be eligible! Likewise the current nomination fee of $540 for ENS is a bargain when the new SAF gets introduced. Heads up........ LODGE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Get those 457s in !

    They are different visas altogether! Have never submitted a Subclass 408 but havent heard any news about it either
  14. New Life Down Under

    Get those 457s in !

    Just a friendly reminder that the 457 will be abolished in a matter of weeks, so apply now if you are still on the list! Heard that Recruitment consultant is coming off next week but this may just be a vicious rumour!
