The Migration Amendment (Giving Documents) Regulations 2023 (the Regulations) amend the Migration Regulations 1994 (the Migration Regulations) to clarify the requirements relating to the giving of a document relating to the proposed cancellation, cancellation or revocation of the cancellation of a visa (cancellation-related documents).

In particular, the Regulations clarify the circumstances in which regulation 2.55 applies to the giving of a document, and expressly reference the provisions of the Migration Act for which Division 2.10 of Part 2 of the Migration Regulations is made.

The objective of this audit is to assess the effectiveness of the Department of Home Affairs’ regulation of migration agents.

The ANAO proposes to examine:

  • Have appropriate arrangements been established to support regulatory activities?
  • Is the regulatory approach effective?

The ANAO welcomes members of the public contributing information for consideration when conducting performance audits. Performance audits involve the independent and objective assessment of the administration of an entity or body’s programs, policies, projects or activities.

The 2023–24 General Skilled Migration (GSM) program is now open, and the South Australian Government has published the state’s 2023–24 Skilled Occupation List.

South Australia has moved to a Registration of Interest (ROI) process to manage strong demand from potential applicants living and working in the state against a limited allocation of nomination places. This means potential applicants must submit a ROI and be invited to apply for state nomination by South Australia. Potential applicants cannot apply for state nomination directly.

Under this invitation process, South Australia will prioritise the retention of South Australia’s international graduates and temporary visa holders.

Experienced overseas workers with skills in high-demand in South Australia, such as Trades and Construction, Defence, Health, Education, Natural and Physical Science and Social and Welfare Professionals will be targeted through invitations to apply for South Australian nomination.

South Australia is also seeking highly skilled overseas workers who can make a strong contribution to the state’s fast-growing industries and projects of national priority. This includes people with:

  • experience working in the defence industry, and/or
  • highly specialised skills in the digital and critical technologies sectors.

The below information has been provided by the Free Trade Agreement Services Section within the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. 

The Innovation and Early Careers Skills Exchange Pilot (IECSEP) is a new visa pathway that will enable eligible UK citizens to take their next career step in Australia. Agreed under the Australia-United Kingdom Free Trade Agreement, IECSEP is one of a number of outcomes under this comprehensive free trade agreement that will deepen economic ties between the two countries. 

IECSEP offers two streams: 

  • Innovation stream – stays up to three years for highly skilled and experienced innovators, working in occupations defined at the ANZSCO Skill Level 1.
  • Early Careers stream – stays for up to one year for tertiary-qualified 21-45-year-olds, who have worked a minimum three months in their current role, and working in occupations defined at the ANZSCO Skill Levels 1-3

IECSEP applicants need to have a confirmed job in Australia to be able to apply, and must remain with this employer for the duration of the visa. Applicants can undertake placements, secondments, graduate rotations or intra-company transfers between the applicant’s UK employer and any partnering Australian organisation. Alternatively, IECSEP applicants can commence a new role in Australia. Applicants who will work in regulated occupations in Australia must have current Australian occupational licencing without any conditions or restrictions. More information for applicants and prospective Australian employers is contained in the IECSEP Guidebook.
