  1. I'm sure I've read somewhere that there was a draft SMP for WA, and wondered if anyone has a copy, or remembers what occupations were on it? I know, it will still need to be finalised, but would just like to know whether there is even a glimmer of hope that we may still be able to get a visa in the near future.
  2. Has anyone sent a bank draft (in aussie dollars ) from UK to PVCentre using an international courier and was this a safe option. If so can anyone recommend one.:twitcy:
  3. We are going to send off our visa application next week and I am still trying to figure out how to pay for it! I have asked the HSBC bank and they say they have not heard of an international money order, but can issue an international bank draft in Australian Dollars. Does anyone know if it's okay to pay this way? If so, do you tick 'bank cheque' or 'money order' on the application form? I'm stressing more about this than anything else at the moment!! Thanks, Emmy B

    Draft SOL list :-s

    I am not sure if anyone has put this on here! I came across it and thought that I would like to share it with my fellow PIO peeps. Bear in mind that this is a draft list and some of the occupations seem very generalised. Well they do to me!!! Hopefully the actual list will be more defined, I wait with baited breath for our occupation to be on there:notworthy:!! Views and discussion welcome!!

    Draft SOL List

    Apprently draft SOL list has been doing the rounds of (some) state education institutions according to article "Jobs list will dash hopes of residency": .....University of Technology, Sydney business dean Roy Green said the draft list was dramatic and "much more credible than anything we have seen previously". "UTS business will look very closely at this list to see which occupations were included and excluded," Professor Green said. "We note accountancy is still included, which is an important part of our intake of overseas students." The draft Skilled Occupation List was released last week as part of Skills Australia's national workforce strategy. Of course no conflict of interest here allowing state providers access to the draft list before the new SOL is official

    The Draft of new SOL....

    According to the Draft of new SOL, which published by Skill Australia, Accountant, commercial cookery, Pastry, hairdresser and translation occupations may not be included in the list. TR may also be canceled given that your occupation is off the new SOL list. Further, Migration requirements of Accountant tudents are likely getting tougher with restricted immigration policies. Australian Government has treated our international students as a tool to make money and then throw us away like trash. I just wanna ask, ARE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS HUMAN???? Therefore, I intended to organize a student protest in Sydney at the middle of April. Whether you like to appeal this policy or not, not matter the upcoming SOL will affect you or not, please give us a help. The protest will be held in mid-April, and I have already sent the protest related documents relevant to the government department. If you are the one get affected, this is perhaps the last opportunity to express your opinion. If you have any questions related to this protest, please massage me directly and I will provide more information privately. Thank you for your support. . . . Please add QQ groups 105968186 (if you are a chinese) or PM me, so that we can determine the figure of people wish to attend this protest.
  8. Got this in an email this morning,makes interesting reading,especially the comment about 457 visa holders needing to pay for private health cover. Government releases draft employer obligations for overseas workers Thursday, 12 February 2009 The Rudd Government today released draft regulations outlining new sponsorship obligations for employers of temporary skilled overseas workers on Subclass 457 visas. A panel of industry, union and state government representatives will now begin assessing the proposed new regulations to provide feedback to government. The Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Senator Chris Evans, said advice from the Skilled Migration Consultative Panel will assist the Government to finalise the sponsorship obligations that will apply to all employers of Subclass 457 visa holders. The employer obligations were drafted following the Visa Subclass 457 Integrity Review conducted by industrial relations expert Barbara Deegan last year. Proposed employer obligations to be considered by the panel include: Payment of a minimum salary to Subclass 457 visa holders Payment of return travel costs for visa holders and their spouses Cooperating with inspectors exercising powers under the Worker Protection Act. Senator Evans said the Government is considering basing the minimum wage for Subclass 457 visa holders on the market rate paid to Australian workers employed in similar positions. 'Paying market rates for Subclass 457 visa holders will effectively make them a more expensive option for employers,' Senator Evans said. 'This will ensure that temporary skilled overseas workers are not employed ahead of local workers or used to undermine Australian wages and conditions. 'The principle of the Subclass 457 visa scheme is to supplement – not replace – the local workforce when there are serious skills shortages. 'The scheme is not to be used to employ overseas workers at the expense of local labour.' Senator Evans said that application rates for Subclass 457 visas in January 2009 were 31 per cent lower than in September 2008, reflecting the change in economic conditions. The declines were most pronounced in the construction, mining and manufacturing sectors. 'The 457 visa program is a demand driven scheme and it is showing that it is responding to the changes in the labour market,' Senator Evans said. The draft regulations also propose removing the requirement for employers to cover health care costs for temporary overseas workers. Instead, Subclass 457 visa holders will be required to take out private health insurance at their own expense and cover any school expenses for their children. Under the Worker Protection Act passed late last year, employers who fail to satisfy a sponsorship obligation may face administrative sanctions and/or pecuniary penalties of up to $33 000 from September 2009. The Subclass 457 visa program is an uncapped scheme driven by labour market demand for employers to sponsor skilled overseas workers in Australia for up to four years.
