Migration (Class of Persons for Nil VAC - Workplace Justice Visa) Instrument (LIN 24/056) 2024

Effective 1 July 2024, the Australian Government has implemented the Migration (Class of Persons for Nil VAC—Workplace Justice Visa) Instrument (LIN 24/056) 2024. This regulation introduces the Workplace Justice visa as a stream under the Subclass 408 (Temporary Activity) visa, establishing a visa application charge (VAC) of nil for eligible applicants. This instrument is aligned with the Migration Amendment (Workplace Justice Visa) Regulations 2024.

Key Details:

  • Commencement Date: 1 July 2024
  • Objective: To implement the Workplace Justice visa stream within the Subclass 408 visa category.
  • Eligibility: Applicable to applicants satisfying criteria under clause 408.228A of Schedule 2 to the Migration Regulations.
  • Visa Application Charge: Nil for both primary and secondary applicants.

Consultation and Impact:

  • Consultations were conducted with the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations, the Fair Work Ombudsman, and experienced non-government practitioners.
  • The Office of Impact Analysis concluded that a detailed impact analysis was not necessary.

This initiative is part of a broader reform to support temporary migrants with workplace matters, informed by the Migrant Workers’ Taskforce Report, the Nixon Review, and the Migration Strategy.

Stay informed and ensure compliance with the latest regulations.
