One could argue ‘Plan KK’ has been Labor’s 'go-to plan' since her nomination to stand for the state seat of Heffron in 2002.

Kristina Keneally was famously promoted into NSW Cabinet after one term on the back-bench, before her ascension as the first female Premier of New South Wales.  This was as a result of a tired, stale and notably corrupt NSW Labor Government’s ‘hail-mary’ to save itself from electoral oblivion.

Whilst Keneally famously declared she was ‘nobody’s girl’, questions still remain about the validity of her claims that she had zero knowledge of the now infamous dealings which resulted in convictions and jail time.

The purpose of the instrument is to specify a class of persons for paragraph 1402(3B)(b) of Schedule 1 to the Regulations. The instrument specifies as a class of persons, persons who were granted Subclass 449 visas due to the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan. In practise, these are Afghan nationals who were evacuated from Afghanistan to Australia, who:
- were locally engaged employees of the Australian Government;
- had a strong connection to Australia; or
- were particularly vulnerable or high profile and who may come to the attention of the Taliban because of that vulnerability or profile.

Purpose

A person may be eligible for the grant of a Subclass 408 (Temporary Activity) visa (Subclass 408 visa) where one of the primary criteria set out in Subdivision 408.2 of Schedule 2 to the Regulations applies. One of the primary criteria is that the person seeks to enter or remain in Australia to undertake work directly associated with an ‘Australian Government endorsed event’ (AGEE) (see clause 408.229). Such an event must be specified by legislative instrument, and an applicant for a Subclass 408 visa pursuant to clause 408.229 of Schedule 2 to the Regulations must be in a class of persons specified in that instrument in relation to the event (see paragraphs 408.229(b) and (c)).

The purpose of the instrument is to specify two AGEEs and the related class of persons for each event, for clause 408.229 of Schedule 2 to the Regulations. The events are the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Women’s World Cup 2023 (FWWC 2023) and the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men’s Twenty20 World Cup 2022 (ICC Men’s T20WC 2022).

The instrument also provides, for subparagraph 1237(2)(a)(i) of Schedule 1 to the Regulations, a nil visa application charge amount for applicants in a class of persons specified in the instrument.
