Important regulation changes on the horizon - Hannibal Khoury gives his comments.
Registered Migration agent Hannibal khoury seeks to explain the proposed July 2011 changes, how they may affect you and how by acting now you can apply for your migration options before it may be to late. It is proposed that a new points test for skilled migrationvisa applications will be introduced on 1 July 2011.
It complements the series of reforms the Australian Government announced in February 2010. The new points test is focused on selecting highly skilled people to deliver a more responsive and targeted migration program. It was developed following a review of the current points test, which considered submissions from a variety of experts and the wider Australian community.
The new points test balances the different factors that are considered when determining whether someone will be granted a skilled migration visa. It will deliver the best and brightest skilled migrants by emphasising high level qualifications, better English language levels and extensive skilled work experience.
The new points test will continue to award points for study in Australia, including regional study, community languages, partner skills and completing an approved Professional Year. Points will no longer be awarded on the basis of an applicant's occupation, but all applicants must still nominate an occupation on the applicable Skilled Occupation List.
The pass mark is the number of points required to be eligible for skilled migration. The pass mark is a tool that allows for management of the skilled migration program and is always subject to change. It is expected that the pass mark will be set at 65 points.
