Everyone with a Sponsorship Visa can apply for Australia PR Visa by 2023 end

by Nationwide Visas Canadian Immigration Expert

All those who have the Sponsorship Visa will be in a position to file an application for Australia Permanent Subclass 186 Employer Nomination Visa by the end of 2023. It is inclusive of those candidates whose occupation is included on the STSOL - Short-term Skilled Occupation List.

Furthermore, several other affirmative changes have been announced after the review report on the Immigration System in Australia was published. The confirmed changes among others include Employer Nomination Visa.

Aspiring immigration candidates can be overwhelmed by the proposed changes. We have here thus outlined the imminent changes in a simple manner relevant for both employers and skilled alike.

Subclass 186 Permanent Visas for holders of Sponsorship Visas

The requirements for the Permanent Subclass 186 Employer Nomination Visa were changed by the erstwhile Liberal Government 5 years ago. Accordingly, only those sponsored workers who can nominate occupations in the MLTSSL - Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List could qualify for filing the application for Australia Permanent Subclass 186 Employer Nomination Visa.

Furthermore, applicants are qualified only under the TRT - Temporary Residence Transition Stream after they have been employed by the same employer sponsoring them for at least three years.

However, by the end of the fiscal year 2023, this will be modified as confirmed by the media release of the Home Affairs Department in Australia.

The current Labor Government in Australia will revert to the requirements that existed before 5 years. Accordingly, anyone in Australia who has the Sponsorship Visa under the Subclass 482 Visa will be qualified to file an application for Australia PR Visa. This is through the Subclass 186 Employer Nomination Scheme Visa. It is irrespective of the existence of their occupation on the STSOL/ Short-term Skilled Occupation List or MLTSSL/ Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List.

Moreover, only a less years of work in Australia will be needed by an individual having the Sponsorship Visa to apply for the Australia PR Visa. These candidates will be qualified after having worked for the same employer sponsoring them for 2 years in place of 3 years.

However, candidates will be required to fulfill many other criteria such as:

  • Firstly, the employer has to be ready to offer a nomination to the worker they are sponsoring for a PR Visa and this is the choice of the employer
  • The employer’s business has to fulfill the criteria for nomination
  • The applicants are required to fulfill minimum proficiency in English, age, character, and health requirements

Minimum yearly income for Sponsored Visa to increase

With effect from 1st July 2023, the TSMIT - Income Threshold for Temporary Skilled Migration will be increased to $70,000 annually to the current $53,900 which remains unaltered from the last 10 years. So this is the figure the income level would be according to the Government if revised every year.

The revised salary will be effective from 1st July 2023 and applicable to petitions filed from this day onwards. If you wish to file an application for the Sponsorship Visa with the lower income cap, you can connect with registered Australia Immigration Consultants. The reason is that this opportunity is accessible only till July 1st, 2023.

Alteration to the Points Test

The existing system of points for the selection of immigrants to Australia is being assessed. There are demands to restructure the system for ensuring that the candidates who make the maximum and long-term economic input get selected.

The existing test is considered ineffective for differentiating between candidates and is structured on poor indicators of labor market success. The criteria for determining the success of the applicants were regarded as unrelated by the latest review. These were not necessarily determining the success in the long-term for Visa holders as well as the immigration system.

The Government is considering updating the system for the selection of immigrants with maximum chances f success and participation in the growth of the nation’s economy.

A decrease in the number of Subclass Visas

The number of available Australia Subclass Visas will be reduced. It means that the process for Visa application will be made simpler and easier for applicants to choose the suitable Visa category. This change has been welcomed by Immigration Experts.

The immigration system of Australia is quite intricate and sluggish which has caused annoyance to both businesses and immigrants. This is a concern as Australia is competing with other advanced nations to allure skilled overseas workers. In order to address this concern, the number of Subclass Visas will be decreased from the current 100 plus to simplify the process.
