1. The exemption for overseas 485 holders will be announced soon, and the business community urges the return of skilled immigrants to plan soon!
Immigration Minister Alex Hawke said in an interview last Thursday that the government will soon ("very near future") announce the exemption policy for 485 visa holders abroad. This time the exemption policy is for those who have previously signed in China. After returning home, the holders who were unable to return to Australia due to the epidemic, and the visa validity period was lost day by day. Efforts are currently being made to determine which exemption policies apply to overseas 485 holders, possibly extending or reinstating their visas, and are working closely with the Minister of Education to formulate plans, which are expected to be announced in the next few weeks.
The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Australian Industry Group, and the Association of Small Business Owners Organizations collectively called on the federal government to provide detailed plans for skilled immigration to Australia as soon as possible. It is believed that once the states and territories get rid of the blockade, the shortage of skills will quickly intensify. It is hoped that the date of the return of skilled immigrants will be determined so that enterprises can make preparations.
Some supplements to the Victorian International Student Back to Australia Program. 120 people are picked up every week. The program is divided into two stages. The first stage requires actual work (such as internship) to continue or complete the degree and graduate students will be given priority. The second stage will be extended to international students in TAFE, English language courses, private colleges and middle schools.
The university will provide additional isolation places for student visa holders (fees to be determined). The number of entries will not be counted in the state entry cap. It is determined that students need to pay for the flight to Melbourne by themselves.

Career plan reminds again to prepare according to the template, the content requirements are concise and clear. Do not copy and paste the questions to make up the word count. Regarding the choice of student learning and skills training: If you already have a degree, it is recommended that learning can provide ‘foundational skills’ training. And don't make fakes at work and banks, the consequences are serious!
