Here’s a pretty positive new report, from the perspectives of those motivated with Australia immigration! This news will especially motivate the aspirants from certain specific nations, such as India, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Numerous new measures--involving visas and passports in Australia--have reportedly been substantiated in the administration’s yearly Budget declaration. While the Australian Government will start a 3-year Multiple Entry Visa for the low immigration risk people from the countries of Thailand, India, Chile, and Vietnam, a user pays visitor visa fast track service for the nationals of India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will also be introduced.
Allegedly, it is component of a strategy made public by the Australian regime to test improvements to visa arrangements in major markets, with a view to increase the visitor and investor figures.
As per a concerned person, the strategy develops on the 2015-2016 MYEFO measure which comprised a trial of a user pays visa fast track service for the people from the People’s Republic of China.
The administration also stated that it will save 180 million dollars over three years from the coming fiscal year, via making automation in visa processing better, proffering self service alternatives, and employing more sophisticated appraisal abilities.
Costs for visa application will boost income by 79.4 million dollars, the increase mainly being thanks to a likely augmentation in visa applications even as the total income for the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP)--the body governing the visa and immigration--will be raised by 740.8 million dollars, in the process, taking the combined total to 17.4 billion dollars.
Besides, come July 01, 2017, and the citizens of New Zealand will be in a position to access a restructured corridor to the cherished and the much sought after Permanent Residence (PR) status in the nation, in case they were a resident of Australia on January 19, 2016. It is necessary that they have resided in Oz for not less than 5 years and taken home above the TSMIT threshold of 53,000 dollars over the time-frame.
In the meantime, the charge of an Australia passport will rise in 2017 by 20 to 274 dollars, and the priority processing cost will rise by 54 to 181 dollars. The administration reportedly stated the step will generate 172.9 dollars million over 4 years from 2016-2017, which will be employed to offset the augmented price of giving consular services & fund policy priorities.
It was also reportedly proclaimed that a cost will be levied on the Australian airports to proffer premium border clearance services for the global guests, even as the services will begin at Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.
