Australia’s travel restrictions have impacted visa holders in various ways; and as such, you may be wondering how you can travel to or from Australia, or extend your stay.
Thankfully, after almost two years of requiring overseas workers to be granted Critical Work Travel Exemptions to enter the country, participating States and Territories in Australia re-opened their international borders to fully-vaccinated eligible skilled migrants and international students from December 2021.
These relaxed restrictions mean employers are no longer limited to engaging overseas migrants that can meet a Critical Work Travel Exemption and many businesses can once again engage skilled migrants for their labour needs.
Whether you are a business seeking to understand your options to engage overseas workers, or whether you are an individual needing advice on your visa options, we would recommend a consultation with our Perth migration agents so we can provide advice based on your circumstances.
At Interstaff, our migration agents assess your case in detail and advise on any available visa or sponsorship options that may be available so you can make a more informed decision about the path ahead. After a consultation, our migration agents can be engaged to provide advice throughout the sponsorship, nomination and visa process if you decide you would like ongoing assistance and support. The first step is to get in touch for a consultation so we can assess your case – we encourage you to contact Interstaff today to arrange a consultation to discuss your options.
In Australia, Temporary Visa holders must always hold a valid visa to remain lawful. If your visa is due to expire and you would like to stay in Australia, it is very important to apply for a new visa before the expiry date. Depending on your eligibility, you could apply for a Visitor, Family, Partner, Student or Work 408 Pandemic Event Visa. If you have a No Further Stay Condition on your visa, you may be able to request a Waiver for this condition before applying for a new visa. We understand it may not always be safe or easy to return to your home country due to international travel bans. To explore your visa options to stay, you may wish to get advice from a migration professional.
