MAMEDIA has not set their biography yet

Posted by on in General

Migration Alliance has received a story today from an RMA today regarding an appalling refusal out of India, which deserves attention.  Here is that story:

"I received the attached refusal letter yesterday and to be honest I’ve never seen anything like it. It still has instructions to the processing officer in there, which have not been followed (no review rights option was selected), and there is absolutely no assessment or consideration of the applicant’s claims. The attached is the refusal letter in its entirely.

The application is of course finalised in immiaccount, I have emailed the team responsible and have been told ‘we’ll look into it’. I’ve also made a complaint with the global feedback team.

The Subclass 457 Visa enables an international skilled worker to travel to Australia to work in their nominated field, with their approved sponsor, for up to four years. This temporary work skilled visa (subclass 457) allows skilled workers to come to Australia and work for an approved business up to: 

  • Four years after the visa is granted, if the occupation is listed on the combined list of eligible skilled occupations (or this period is required due to international trade obligations) or
  • Two years after the visa is granted, if the occupation is not listed on the MLTSSL.
 
The applicant must be sponsored by an approved business which cannot find an Australian citizen or permanent resident to do the skilled work. The applicant can be in or outside Australia when lodging their application.
 
When applying for this visa, applicants must also provide evidence that they’ve made appropriate arrangements for health insurance in Australia for the duration of the visa processing period, and for the duration of the visa, once it has been granted. 

If you have clients who are applying for 457 Visa, Bupa’s Overseas Visitors Cover meet Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) health insurance requirements and also include the following benefits:   

  • 100% Australian Government Visa compliant
  • Instant health insurance letter granted

The TSS visa programme will be comprised of a Short-Term stream of up to two years and a Medium-Term stream of up to four years.

Back in April 2017, Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull announced that the 457 visa will be replaced with a new visa program to put ‘Australians first’. As you are aware of the recent changes from 1st July, here at Labour Support Group, we aim to address this question that has been frequently asked by many migration agents and lawyers.

Question: Based on the new Occupation List, which are the more popular occupations with the highest success rate?

Answer: Each case is unique even if it is for the same position; a Motor Mechanic in an automotive workshop and a Motor Mechanic in a bakery can be of the same position but because of their environment, the supporting evidence will be very different. The success of the application is largely dependent on the supporting evidences that are submitted together. These evidences can include, but are not limited to:

Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance is no doubt one of the most vital forms of cover for Migration Agents. If things don’t quite go to plan it can provide much needed financial assistance for legal and compensation costs in the event of action taken against you in the course of your business.   

Like all insurance policies however, there are several important conditions and obligations under PI policies that Migration Agents need to be aware of to ensure your policy provides the cover you’re expecting, so that you won’t be left high and dry when you come face-to-face with the unexpected.

PI insurance contracts are issued on a ‘claims made and notified’ basis, which means the policy responds to claims first made against the insured during the policy period, and notified to the insurer during the policy period. In short, for a claim to be covered your policy must have been in place at the time the allegation was made against you, and when the claim is lodged.
