Commitment to Closer Ties with Indonesia
During a recent visit to Australia by President Joko Widodo of Indonesia, the Australian and Indonesian Governments welcomed the imminent ratification of the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA).
The two Governments noted opportunities for increasing people-to-people links, including that Indonesian access to Australia’s Work and Holiday Visa will increase from 1,000 to 4,100 when the Agreement is ratified, increasing to 6,000 in the sixth year.
Indonesia will be added to the list of countries where there is an exemption of Labour Market Testing for its nationals, based on International Trade Obligations. Hong Kong and Peru will also be added, following recent ratification of trade agreements with Australia.
Ajuria Lawyers will provide further confirmation at the appropriate time.
