Skill Waiver & 121 Visa & Condition waived

September 14, 2021 - Unreported Cases

The applicant has been working for an Australian company and applied for a subclass 121 visa. In order to satisfy the requirements for the visa, the applicant had to show that he could meet certain skill requirements, including a requirement for three years full time work experience. In this case, we applied for a waiver of this requirement on the basis that the applicant was the only person who was qualified for the position, and to refuse the waiver, would result in substantial hardship to an Australian business.

The argument was accepted by the Department and the skill requirement was waived.
