A Better and Happier Life can be Attainable through Migration

Mitchell Ramstadius | June 2013

Migrating to Australia can be a fantastic way to live the life you've always wanted, and succeed at achieving goals you've previously only dreamed of! Tar Eh Paw Gay for example is a migrant from a remote refugee camp in regional Thailand. She says the feeling of living in safety is wonderful and having the opportunity to work and study is highly fulfilling! Her husband Kaw now works at a local school and Tar attends regular English lessons. You can understand more about how impressive the successful change to her life has been at the following link:

She admits that initially thinking about the commitment of migrating to Australia was daunting. 'But we had faith that it would all work out for the best.' Tar and her family still have strong links to their Burmese Karen community roots, meeting regularly with Canberra's local Karen community. 'We recently celebrated Karen New Year,' Tar says. 'It was very special and nice to have the opportunity to celebrate here. We shared traditional food with family and friends at a local community centre.'

Worried about your English?

Mitchell Ramstadius | June 2013

If your understanding of the English language is intimidating you away from migrating to Australia or you just want to improve your English skills to further enrich your experience here, don't give in as there are many great programs and supports available to you. One of these highly beneficial programs is the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP). It provides free language courses to migrants and is a great opportunity for you to make friends and learn about Australia, its people and its customs.

Improving your English skills can greatly improve your quality of life here in Australia. Communication skills are so invaluable in the modern world, and the better you get at them the more opportunities you can expose yourself too. You can feel confident that moving here to Australia is a great option for you regardless of your English language abilities, as there are so many helpful programs like the AMEP which will make your migration process so much easier and less stressful.

Unfairly Treated Subclass 457 Visa Holdersa

Mitchell Ramstadius | June 2013

At a recent Committee hearing, the question was asked of the MIA whether they could provide any information about any unfairness, exploitation or discrimination suffered by Subclass 457 visa holders. The MIA has asked any Members who have had 457 visa clients approach them regarding any unfairness, exploitation or discrimination they have suffered if they could provide any information about that by emailing the NSW/ACT Committee.

Possible Subclass 457 changes for 1 July 2013

Mitchell Ramstadius | June 2013

The Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Visas) Bill 2013 is now before Federal Parliament. The following is a summary of the proposed amendments contained in the Bill among others which has not yet passed:

The purpose of temporary sponsored work visas is to address genuine skills shortages without displacing employment and training for Australian citizens and permanent residents, by imposing obligations on sponsors to protect the workers and not use the program inappropriately.

Labour Market Testing is to be defined as means testing of the Australian labour market to demonstrate whether a suitably qualified and experienced Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident is readily available to fill a nominated position. Labour market testing will be satisfied if evidence of extensive effort by the sponsor to fill the position with an Australian citizen or permanent resident can be presented, and is required for many occupations.

New 457 visa conditions where if the visa holder ceases employment with their sponsor, the period which they cease employment must not exceed 90 consecutive days which is up from the original 28. An exhaustive list of various Sponsorship obligations is planned to be implemented including paying a market salary rate and paying prescribed costs for the departure of a visa holder from Australia just to name a couple. The powers of Sponsorship Inspectors will include investigating whether a person who is required to satisfy a sponsorship obligation has committed an offence, or contravened a civil penalty provision
