Migration (COVID-19 Pandemic event for Subclass 408 visa & visa application charge for Temporary Activity visa) Amendment Instrument (No. 2) 2021

The instrument amends the Migration (LIN 20/229: COVID-19 Pandemic event for Subclass 408 (Temporary Activity) visa and visa application charge for Temporary activity (Class CG) visa) Instrument 2020 (F2020L01145)(LIN20/229) in accordance with subsection 33(3) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901. That subsection provides that a power to make a legislative instrument includes a power to amend or repeal that instrument in the same manner, and subject to the same conditions, as the power to make the instrument.  

The instrument commences on the day after this instrument is registered on the Federal Register of Legislation and is a legislative instrument for the Legislation Act 2003 (the Legislation Act).

    Hi all,

    This instrument was registered on 13/05/21, but then repealed on 15/05/21 - it is not longer in force.
    Is this normal? Does this mean that there was authority for 2 days to apply for s/c 408 nil VAC and for the tourism and hospitality sector. But now there is not authority and therefore application can not be made? I find it a bit strange, why would they do that?
