Thank you to Migration Agents that have attended this week’s CPD on Subclass 491 Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) and Subclass 494 (Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visas.

It was a group effort to work through the legislation which is due to commence on 16th November 2019 and 16th November 2022 respectively.

The vast majority of agents get along well, and co-exist in the profession without problems. 

Part 4 of the Code of Conduct has always interested me.  Why is it there?  Why do we need it?  We are all professional and we all compete in this space without incident.  We know all know what to do, and we all know how to behave.
