    myVEVO

    VEVO allows you (or your agent, employer, university, another Government Dept etc) to check the validity and conditions of your current in-effect visa. It is visa specific (you match a travel document number with a unique application identifier), rather than a personal "account" so if you don't have a visa it will give a nil return. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/already-have-a-visa/check-visa-details-and-conditions/check-conditions-online

    491 visa processing time

    If they have granted the visa - then a travel exemption would be logical next step.

    491 visa processing time

    The PR transition from the 491 is three years of employment/residence. They have made some, fairly small, concessions for the 489 to 887 transition, so it's not impossible that something may be offered at some point, but I have seen nothing concrete yet as this is still very much a hypothetical situation.

    Congrats - so granted an offshore 491? What occupation, please?

    491 English Requirement?

    As others have said, this has been the case for a lot longer than March. Others may have been looking at different visas.

    Subclass 300 Visa advice please.

    No ... you can’t as the visa is still valid. If you can’t get an exemption then there is little point in a new “priority” application until the travel rules change.

    Yes they are ... if you have a travel exemption.

    189 Visa with delayed move

    There’s a big difference between ‘movement of people will very much feature’ and ‘free movement’ ... the whole point, apparently, of Brexit was to end free movement of people from next door, let alone the other side of the world and, from Australia’s perspective, where’s the upside for Australia in this? I can see, perhaps, some relaxation of rules around temporary work visas, in line with other free trade deals Australia has signed, but beyond that it’s hard to see.

    491 English Requirement?

    WA won’t nominate you for a 491 as an electrician, so an English test is not really the issue.

    Subclass 300 Visa advice please.

    No they won’t. It’s still very difficult to get a travel exemption for a 300 visa holder. If your visa expires before you can use it you will be able to apply for a refund. They have said applicants in this situation will get priority processing of a new application.

    189 Visa with delayed move

    I really wouldn’t bank on that ...

    189 Visa with delayed move

    Medical lab scientist may hit a sweet spot at the moment. I’d get some advice and get started ASAP.

    Pretty much. But as mentioned above, in the current environment, you need to get the visa and the travel exemption so you can get on the plane.

    491 English Requirement?

    It depends on what occupation and which state ... and what you mean by “current language”.
