7 Days of Migration – 18/9/19 to 25/9/19

(18th September to 25th September 2019)

Not sure what has happened in the past week with migration? Don’t worry! We have the latest migration news and stories from the past seven days available here at your convenience. No need to do any further research, we have done it all for you.

In this week’s edition, we first have an article by SBS about a man who has been living in Australia for 13 years and has not received his permanent residency yet. It has been over nineteen months since he had applied for his permanent visa. Processing for the permanent skilled regional visa has gone from six months to roughly 18-21 months!

Then there is the story by The Australian. It talks about how the agriculture industry is going to benefit from the working-holiday visa. Last year, the government has changed the program to make it more aimed for farmers in regional areas. To qualify for the second stage of the Working Holiday Visa, applicants must do three months of regional work (in particular areas in agriculture, forestry and fishing). 

These are just a few stories we have found for you. We have many more stories for you to read below.
