In this week’s edition, we first have an article by The Guardian. It follows the story of a man who initially lodged a protection visa to enter Australia, but was granted a bridging visa with working rights. He was able to find employment in a printing company in Melbourne. However, the company was trading insolvent and in October 2018, went into bankruptcy. No warning was provided. Unfortunately, government protective measures for bankruptcy companies to employees do not apply to migrant workers.

Then there is the story by the SBS. It discuss the change in the requirements for student visa. Students wishing to study in Australia and are from India, Pakistan and Nepal are now considered to be in a ‘higher risk category’ (level 3).
