The deadline for filing an application for merits review has long been the bane of applicants’, and migration agents’ existence, hasn’t it?

It has long been considered “settled law” that the filing deadline is absolutely rigid and inflexible, and cannot be extended no matter how compelling the circumstances may be, or however good the explanation may be for the applicant’s failure to file the application for merits review “on time”.

That is why there was at least temporary cause for excitement, optimism and possibility when a decision was handed down in November 2018 by Justice Greenwood of the Federal Court, in the case of Brown v Minister for Home Affairs (No. 2) (2018) FCA 1787 that the filing deadline was not, in fact, inflexible and that it could indeed be extended.

NSW runs the skilled nominated migration (190) program in order to attract highly skilled people in a range of occupations to contribute to NSW skills needs.

The purpose of the NSW skilled visa program is to help drive economic growth, competitiveness and productivity in NSW. Through the 190 program we aim to nominate highly skilled migrants whose occupational skills are needed in NSW.

NSW selects and invites candidates to apply for NSW nomination. Candidates are selected from the Department of Home Affairs SkillSelect database. NSW Department of Industry selects and invites the highest ranking candidates who meet the NSW nomination criteria in eligible occupations on an ongoing basis. Invitations are not guaranteed.

The following is displayed on the RDA Riverina website:

RDA-Riverina welcomes overseas skilled workers to apply for regional nomination. Skill shortages exist in many parts of Australia, in particular regional Australia, which allows RDA-Riverina to nominate skilled workers to come to the Riverina. This is just one way the organisation is committed to addressing skill shortages and to enhance business development in the region.

The long-term objective is to encourage these people to stay in the region. This visa is valid for up to four years and after two years of living in regional Australia, including at least 12 months full time working in regional Australia, the nominated skilled workers can then apply for a permanent resident visa.
