The Migration Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Bill 2016 has at long last had its second reading in the Senate, and was passed this morning.
Some will recall that this is the legislation that the Federal Government considers is required to pass into law before the long awaited temporary parent visa can become available.
We are anticipating the Bill will become law this week, at which point we can reasonably expect the new temporary parent visa pathway will open.
Hopefully the regulations to facilitate the new temporary parent visa won’t take too long to prepare.
The legislation as drafted requires the approval of a sponsor before a visa application is lodged.
Those who are interested in progressing an application for the new temporary parent visa with our help should feel able to complete the enquiry form on this page.
We can then confirm our fee for assisting with a temporary parent visa application.
