    Changes to Skilled Occupations Lists Flagged for Mid 2018

    The Department of Jobs and Small Business has published a draft bulletin for public comment on proposed changes to the skilled occupations lists to take effect in mid 2018.

    https://docs.jobs.gov.au/system/files/doc/other/180530_-_tlb_brief_mid_year_update.pdf

    Impact on General Skilled Migration Applicants
    Since April 2017, applicants who had occupations removed entirely from the skilled occupation lists prior to receiving an invitation to apply for a 489, 189, or 190, were no longer eligible to lodge an application for either of those visas. We expect this trend will continue in the next round of changes.
    Similarly, applicants who had occupations that were moved between MLTSSL and STSOL were also affected in that their options may have become limited or broadened depending on the new list. We expect this trend will continue in the next round also.

    It is also likely that applicants who received invitations to apply for a 489, 189, or 190 prior to the next round of changes but, haven't yet lodged their visa applications, will continue to remain eligible for the visa they have been invited to make an application for.

    Encouraging Self-Sufficiency for Newly Arrived Migrants - Extension (2018-19 Budget)

    In the 2018-19 Budget, the Government announced that the Newly Arrived Resident’s Waiting Period (NARWP) will be further extended from 1 July 2018. Pending the passage of legislation, the NARWP will be extended to four years for a number of welfare payments, including Newstart Allowance, Youth Allowance, Family Tax Benefit and the Paid Parental Leave Scheme.

    This measure will only apply to people granted permanent residency, and some temporary visas, on or after 1 July 2018.
    Migrants already granted permanent residency before 1 July 2018 will not be affected by this measure.

    Businesses chasing foreign workers under new 457 visa win LinkedIn backflip

    Foreign workers can be brought into Australia on the new 457-style visa as long as employers tried to hire Aussies first … on LinkedIn.
    The Government this month tweaked its rules around the new 457, now dubbed the "Temporary Skill Shortage" visa, reversing an earlier decision to reject ads on the social network as part of labour market testing.

    Minimum points jumps from 60 to 65

    Pool/Pass Mark rises from 60 to now 65 points for all 489, 189 and 190 visas lodged in response to an invitation given after 1st July 2018.

    In effect that means any EOIs at 60 points that have not received an invite by the 1st July will be of no use and will not get an invite .

    17 July 2018

    Interstate applicants are no longer able to apply for Queensland state nomination. If you are currently interstate, in order to be eligible for Queensland state nomination, you must meet our Working in Queensland or Alumni pathway criteria. This would require you to move to Queensland and meet any working requirements before submitting an Expression of Interest to BSMQ.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
