Migration Expert's Skilled Visa Eligibility Assessment is up-to-date with the latest changes, giving you an accurate assessment of your eligibility
(PRWEB) June 4, 2010
Migration Expert Australia has announced the release of their new Work Visa Eligibility Assessment. The new Work Visa Eligibility Assessment incorporates the recent immigration policy changes made by the Australian Government.
Migration Expert's Skilled Work Visa Eligibility Assessment is designed to instantly determine if you are eligible to apply for a Work visa to Australia. This assessment uses criteria set by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), and is the most comprehensive and technologically advanced online Migration Assessment tool available.
Australia's skilled migration program has gone through a number of radical changes during 2010, including:
- Removal of the Critical Skills List,
- Changes to 457 (Temporary Business Long-Stay) Visa rules,
- New Skilled occupation list,
- Changes to State & Territory Sponsorship programs, and
- The temporary suspension of skilled off-shore applications.
With changes occurring so frequently, it is important for people to re-check their eligibility with an up-to-date Visa Assessment tool. According to Migration Expert Representative Hanna Eliasson, "Due to the recent Government changes, people who have checked their eligibility as recently as one week ago may have an out-dated assessment result".
"Migration Expert has already advised clients to retake the skilled work visa assessment to make sure they still qualify under the newest immigration policy changes" said Ms Eliasson. "Migration Expert's Skilled Visa Eligibility Assessment is up-to-date with the latest changes, giving you an accurate assessment of your eligibility".
Migration Expert expects DIAC to announce more changes after July 1, 2010. These changes will be a continuation of the ongoing reforms to the General Skilled Migration program. Migration Expert advises that on-shore applicants should lodge their applications while they are still eligible.
Off-shore applicants, who are currently unable to lodge work visa applications should stay informed about changes as they are announced, and prepare to lodge their application after July 1.
"At Migration Expert, we keep our clients informed on Government policy changes and identify alternate opportunities for our clients should they no longer qualify for the visa they were considering" said Ms Eliasson, "The most recent changes came unannounced, and with very little media attention. People applying without the aid of a Registered Australian Migration Consultant may have found coping with these changes very difficult".
