News for the Start of December
VETASSESS has announced the closure of their office during the festive season,.
Their offices will close from Friday 21 December 2018 and will reopen, Wednesday 2 January 2019.
Other Assessment Bodies will have black out dates as well during this period, so expect a delay.
The Migration Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Bill 2016 was passed and is now currently waiting Royal Assent.
Essentially what this means is now the Sponsor of a Spouse visa is separated from the Spouse application itself and the assessment will be done SEPARATELY. This will have implications for onshore applications that are "time sensitive".
We will keep you posted once it has received the Royal Assent.
