The GTI program target sectors have been updated recently. The new target sectors are:
Biosecurity (Human Biosecurity Emergency) (Human Coronavirus with Pandemic Potential) (Overseas Travel Ban Emergency Requirements) Amendment (No. 1) Determination 2021 – F2021L00268 was lifted to allow Australian citizens and permanent residents to travel to New Zealand.
At this point, 14 days of mandatory quarantine in NZ is still required. This could change with a travel bubble in the coming weeks.
There is a serious health risk to the Australian community to travel to PNG due to the COVID-19 outbreak. People seeking to travel to PNG will only be approved in minimal circumstances.
The Ministerial Direction 90 will commence on 15 April 2021. It introduces a new primary consideration when the case officer considers visa refusal and cancellation under section 501. Case officers are required to consider family violence as a very serious offence when deciding on the application.
