Amendments to Migration Regulations effective 23 November 2014

  • Subclass 400 Temporary Work visa (Short Stay) – extension of both the entry period and the stay from 3 months to 6 months.

This is excellent news for employers who only have short term business requirement for an overseas worker into Australia.

  • Advanced Diploma Students’ visa processing streamlined

With the amendment, students who study an advanced diploma from eligible / recognised higher education providers are now eligible for streamlined students’ visa processing.

Students who are assessed as though, they are a lower immigration risk, irrespective of their country of origin, generally require reduced evidentiary requirements on application.

Previously streamlined students’ visa processing arrangements was only available for university students.
