Visas being stopped

Recommended Posts

Can anyone shed some light on this? Some comments on the fb post seem to clarify the OP’s concerns but I’ve googled and searched on here and found nothing. ?‍♀️

Trying to get to Aus since 2008. Finally the end is in sight and we are starting to really plan.

You are talking about the skilled independent category and the State sponsorship being totally scrapped? I suspect there is a myriad of visas more likely to be binned before they scrap the one which brings in the most skilled migrants. 

Its not unknown for them to change the subclass number, for instance the 175 and 176 were replaced by the 189 and 190, but scrap it? Extremely tremendously unlikely.

Thank you. That's a weight off my mind! As I say, it's the first (and pretty much only) post I've seen mentioning it.

They are bringing the total amount if visas down to just 10 but that could happen gradually over the next few years

Thanks Woody. Do you know (roughly) how many there are at the moment?

That is about right for the number of visas available for application. There are many more that cannot be applied for, but are still valid for those who hold them.

Thanks guys. I knew there were a lot, but didn't realise quite how many!
