Effect of COVID-19 Offshore Employer Sponsored Visa’s

Posted on May 22, 2020 by Benson Shi

Due to the recent mass job loss and unemployment, the Australian Government is seeking to secure job opportunities for Australians. Hence, the offshore delivery of the Migration Program has been severely impacted.

In addition to the severe impact on offshore employer visas, there are delays in the processing of these visas due to substantial global disruption and unavailability of key assessment services (such as panel doctors, police services for penal clearances, biometric collection, and English language testing).

High value applications – applicants with critical skills that are useful to Australia’s COVID-19 response, are welcomed and are given priority in visa processing.
