First Newsletter of 2020
Happy New Year to all of our readers.
During 2020, Ajuria Lawyers looks forward to sharing information that we hope is useful, current and interesting.
With Parliament in recess, and news dominated by the bushfire tragedy in Australia, December / January has been a quiet time from an immigration point of view.
With no scheduled Federal election in Australia this year, we can expect that it will soon be “business as usual”. The Australian Border Force is likely to continue if not expand its monitoring activities, and there is an important article in our January newsletter on monitoring of business sponsors. We also expect to hear a lot more about the Government’s new Global Talent and Regional Visa programs in 2020.
There is also an opportunity to get involved in the review of Skilled Occupations Lists, and we await details of the review of the Skilling Australians Fund (also known as the training levy).
We trust you will enjoy our newsletters in 2020 – and we are always grateful for feedback.
