Navigating the complexity of Australian immigration Law is no easy challenge at the best of times, much less in an unprecedented global pandemic like the one presented by COVID-19.
Further to our first Frequently Asked Questions sheet, which was provided to assist employers with their questions, we have created a list of Frequently Asked Questions that addresses some of the questions we have heard from visa-holders: COVID-19: what you need to know as a visa-holder
UPDATE: the Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs released a statement on 4 April 2020 outlining proposed concessions for temporary visa-holders. This can be accessed here. At this stage, we have no further information about when or how these concessions will be introduced. Our fact sheet will be updated when the relevant legislation or policy has been released.
