South Australia updates Sec48 related regulations, spouse immigration reform will not be implemented temporarily
This week, the South Australian State Government updated that since the Immigration Department has recently determined that applicants affected by sec48 can also submit a 491/190/494 visa in China, the South Australian State Government will no longer require such applicants to provide an exit certificate when submitting a state duty. .
More than a year ago, the Immigration Bureau stated that it would implement reforms for spouse immigration, mainly to meet the requirements of functional English before the applicant TR transfers to PR, which is equivalent to IELTS 4.5, or prove that they have made efforts in English learning, such as taking AMEP courses. (Those holding passports of some countries can be exempted)
The other is that the guarantor needs to obtain the qualifications of the guaranty before the applicant can submit the visa application. The most important thing to check is whether the guarantor has a history of domestic violence or other criminal records.
At that time, it was said that the original date was November 2021, but new information from MIA said that the related Migration Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Act 2018 did not take effect as scheduled, and there was no new information about the new language requirements. , The submission requirements and procedures for spouse immigration remain unchanged for the time being, and need to be updated.
