The federal Budget not only announced cuts to Government departments, the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) have also confirmed to the Migration Institute of Australia that the following Visa classes will be ceasing in the very near future but have not specified a date. The ceasing date could be in force any date from today until 30 June 2014. The visas affected in this category are:
The closure of the applications will have no retrospective implications so it is imperative that if you are considering to lodge an application for one of these visa classes, you do so immediately within the next 2 weeks.
We are able to discuss initial lodgment requirements so that you cannot be locked out of these stream once it ceases.
If you would like to speak to one of our registered migration agents in Australia to arrange an application for one of these Visas, please call us immediately.
