Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Skilled Visa State Nomination Re-Open COVID-19

Skilled Visa State Nomination Re-Open COVID-19

State and Territory Nomination Changes for Skilled and Business Visas During COVID-19 Pandemic

Since the beginning of 2020, the Coronavirus pandemic has been impacting the whole world. The pandemic has changed many aspects of our lives and suspended many dreams and plans for so many people. This situation also puts the dreams of so many people who want to migrate and work in Australia through the General Skilled Migration Visa on hold. The Department of Home Affairs has advised as per 1 July 2020, State and Territory Government not to process nomination allocation for the Skilled visa. The State and Territory Government has stated that their nomination will be temporarily suspended until the federal government’s allocation for state skilled visa nomination is announced for the program year 2020-2021.

As a result, many States and Territory Skilled Visa Nominations have been closed until further notice

However, after months of suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Australia’s general skilled migration is likely to be re-open. It is for limited time and only for occupations specific to the current circumstances. The allocation and occupations priority for the nomination remains limited. The main focus at the moment is to prioritise those skilled occupations that are critical to assist with the COVID-19 recovery.

During COVID-19 It would appear that the Australian government will be focusing on critical sectors which are:

  • People providing critical or specialist medical services, including air ambulance, medical evacuations and delivering critical medical supplies;
  • People with critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services (such as in medical technology, critical infrastructure, telecommunications, engineering and mining, supply chain logistics, agricultural technology, food production, and the maritime industry);
  • People delivering services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery (such as financial technology, large scale manufacturing, film and television production, and emerging technology), where no Australian worker is available.

South Australia State Skilled Visa Nomination 20/21 – COVID-19 Pandemic

The Government of South Australia has been advised of a limited number of interim allocation places for the State’s General Skilled and Business Migration Program for 2020/21. This allocation will be prioritised to support South Australia’s economic and public health recovery.

In addition, Immigration South Australia has advised that General Skilled Visa applications will be prioritised in line with the following criteria:

  1. High-quality skilled visa applications within the Business Innovation and Investment Program;
  2. Skilled visa applicants that are critical to supporting South Australia’s response to the COVID19 pandemic, including individuals providing critical or specialist medical services, critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services; or delivering services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery;
  3. Early consideration of onshore applications that satisfy the above criteria.

The full skilled state and territory nomination allocations for 2020/21 will be determined later in the year as part of the 2020/21 Budget process which is due to take place in October 2020.

Below is the list of visas affected because of these regulations:

  • Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) (subclass 491) visa;
  • Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa;
  • Business Innovation stream (subclass 188A) (Provisional) visa;
  • Investor stream(subclass 188B) (Provisional) visa;
  • Significant Investor stream (subclass 188C) (Provisional) visa;
  • Entrepreneur stream (subclass 188E) (Provisional) visa;
  • Significant Business History (subclass 132A) (Permanent) visa;
  • Venture Capital Entrepreneur (subclass 132B) (Permanent) visa;

Australia is currently focusing on managing  COVID-19 Pandemic and it aims to ease the situation and on track for a recovery program, Australian government acknowledges skilled migration is one of the important factors to help their economy recover sooner. They are reviewing the skilled migration program requirements on a regular basis. Some skilled migration program changes are expected to reflect this mission.
