May at Nomos
May is done and winter is here! Here’s a snapshot of the month at Nomos:
- May was another busy month – this month our clients were granted TSS visas, ENS visas, Partner visas, sc190 State Nominated visas and even a sc300 Prospective Marriage visa. We had a number of matters heard before the AAT as well. It’s always a pleasure to be a part of the visa process, and last month was a particularly rewarding one for us.
- As part of our ongoing commitment to social responsibility, Nomos participated in the Strike for the Climate action on the 21st of May by designating the entire day a meeting-free Friday. In this way, we have joined hundreds of like-minded businesses to demonstrate our support of the need to address global climate change.
- Taking full advantage of the Trans-Tasman Travel Bubble, Director Victoria Stevenson was able to return to her beloved homeland to see much missed family and friends. Sadly, she also encountered several Australian “501” deportees; people facing lifetime bans from Australia, despite having spent decades of their lives here. Despite the length of time they have lived in Australia, many New Zealanders are only temporary or permanent residents of Australia, and are not Australian citizens. They are therefore subject to visa cancellation under s501 of the Migration Act as well as subsequent deportation. If you are dealing with a visa cancellation or are concerned about your and your family’s legal status in Australia, contact us.
That’s the Nomos wrap-up for May 2021. See you again next month!
