آخرین تحولات و تغییرات مهاجرتی کشور استرالیا به خصوص برای ویزاهای پناهندگی ، ویزای 489 تخصصی و ویزای سرمایه گذاری را در مصاحبه جدید با را دیو SBS استرالیا از این لینک بشنوید
خوشبختانه پس از این مصاحبه خبر تکمیلی و خوبی در خصوص ویزای 489 از طرف سازمان مهاجرت استرالیا اعلام گردید مبنی بر اینکه خبر قبلی در خصوص توقف بررسی درخواستهای این ویزا فقط شامل افرادی بوده که اسپانسری غیر از مناطق رجیونال ایالتهای استرالیا(مانند اسپانسر فامیلی) داشته باشند. این به این معنی است که برنامه اسپانسر رجیونال کماکان برای متقاضیانی که توسط ایالت این مناطق اسپانسر شوند وجود داشته و نگرانی از این بابت برای کسانی که 50 امتیاز داشته و به این 10 امتیاز نیاز دارند، نخواهد بود.

ACS assessment changes
ACS is making life even harder for IT students seeking permanent residency in Australia
Australian Computer Society (ACS) admits 1 year work experience requirement is being considered as a compulsory requirement for international students in Australia before they can apply for permanent residency.
Disaster Looms for International IT Students
The Australian Computer Society's Professional Assessment Manager, Berny Martinez, confirmed today that a 1 year work experience employment option after an Australian Bachelor IT degree is being considered as a requirement for international students to obtain the skill assessment for permanent residency.
It is also confirmed that the ACS is now moving to use a 2 stage assessment process, one being for the Temporary Graduate - 485 skills assessment and the next being a Graduate Assessment - for permanent residency. This will effectively dash the hopes of thousands if international students study IT in Australia.
In an email to IMMIGRATION NEWS, Mr. Martinez stated "Currently, our Graduate result letters do not specify it is a Temporary Graduate - 485 skills assessment. This is a straight forward change to ensure applicants are submitting the correct skills assessment to DIBP."
"The change will involve a name change of the application type and a statement in the ACS result letter outlining it is a Temporary Graduate - 485 skills assessment. The criteria will remain the same."
New rules on Australian Refugee Visas
Some more bad news for asylum seekers who have come by boat
TEMPORARY PROTECTION VISA NOW IN EFFECT
On 18 October 2013, Scott Morrison, the Minister for Immigration& Border Protection, issued a Ministerial Direction to officially re-instate Temporary Protection Visas (TPVs).
The reintroduction of TPVs was an election undertaking by the Coalition prior to the election as part of the suite of changes to ‘take sugar off the table’ for irregular maritime arrivals (IMAs).
The visa, to be issued to IMAs, will be formally known as Class XA Subclass 785 (Temporary Protection) visa.
Permanent Protection Visas (PPVs) remain in place. These subclass 866 visas remain available to any applicant who arrived in Australia with a visa that was in effect on the applicant’s last entry into Australia.
So if agents have an Iranian student visa holders or a Vietnamese tourist claiming protection, PPVs will continue to be an accessible option if they are at risk of significant and foreseeable harm in their country of origin.
The same assessment process against Australia’s international obligations under the UN Convention for Refugees and the Migration Act’s complementary provisions will apply both PPV and TPV applicants.
TPVs will be issued for 36 months and applicants and will be reapply to apply afterwards.
Harshly while on a TPV, visa holders will be denied permanent residency, the right to apply for citizenship or access to family reunion. TPV holder will also be barred from returning to Australia should he or she chose to leave.
This lack of pathways towards permanent residency continues to attract the harsh criticism from refugee advocates groups.
However, TPV holders conditions will include a temporary Medicare Card and may included work rights with geographic restrictions.
A new condition for TPV holders under Schedule 8 of the Migration Regulations 1994 has also been introduced:
8565 The holder must notify Immigration of any change in the holder’s residential address within 14 days after the change occurs.
A number of details about TPVs required further announcements. These include information about accessing income support, settlement services, education and the future of the Refugee Review Tribunal.
