Age limit for all Skilled Visas to be reduced to 45 from July 1st
Notice has been received today that the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) are scheduled to reduce the age limit for all skilled visas to 45 from July 1st 2017.
The age reduction applies to all skilled visa subclasses 186, 189, 190 and 489.
There was no indication from the Department prior to this announcement that all subclasses would be affected, so understandably this will come as a surprise to many people. Although full details of the legislation are yet to be issued, it appears certain that visa applicants aged 45 or above will no longer be able to apply for any skilled visa from July 1st.
If you are affected by these changes, and/or you would like to discuss these changes, then please get in touch with us via the enquiry form or email, or give us a ring and one of our consultants will be on hand to discuss your options.
