SBS Language | Australia to refund visa application charge for temporary visa holders affected by COVID-19 border closure

Temporary skilled workers and visitor visa holders will now be eligible to have the visa application charge (VAC) for a subsequent visa application waived, to allow them to return to Australia once travel restrictions are lifted.

Revealing details about the measure that was announced as part of the permanent residency migration shakeup in the Federal Budget last week, Acting Immigration Minister Alan Tudge today said the aim is to ensure that Australia remains an attractive destination for tourists and temporary visa holders who often fill critical skills shortages where locals can’t fill vacancies.

  • Tourists, working holidaymakers, seasonal & pacific workers, prospective partners and temporary skilled workers will be eligible
