Amendments to migration legislation effecting changes to provide access to permanent residency for an expanded cohort of Subclass 482 holders have now been released. These amendments commenced on 25 November 2023.
The Department of Home Affairs has recently announced a change to the policy for LMT. Previously, employers were allowed to conduct LMT over non-consecutive periods to reach the 28-day requirement. For instance, employers could post job advertisements for 14 days and then, after a few days, lodge another round of job advertisements for 14 days to bring them to 28 days in total.
