Migration (LIN 18/191 Substantive Visa Classes) Instrument 2019

The instrument operates to specify all visas that are both substantive and temporary (a substantive temporary visa) as a class of substantive visa.

The purpose of the instrument is to remove the reference to special purpose visas granted to a person on the grounds that they are a member of the crew on a non-military ship, or a spouse, de-facto partner or dependant of a member of the crew.

This reference has been removed as it is now redundant.

This is because there are no holders of a special purpose visa granted on those grounds.

In accordance with paragraph 15J(2)(e) of the Legislation Act 2003 consultation was not necessary. The instrument is of a minor or machinery nature and does not substantially alter existing arrangements.
