Australian borders to open – Know all from MARA agent Mr. Tejas Patel
The past one and half years due to the Covid-19 had been trying times for international students and skilled professionals stuck overseas. Many are waiting for Australian borders to open. With no respite, the anxious lot were expecting immigration changes to happen.
But now, it is the administration that initiated opening the country’s borders from November 1. What are the new immigration measures, and how can these measures revive the immigration sector?
Here are some excerpts to what our Registered Migration Agent Mr. Tejas Patel has to say post the pandemic:
Q 1. The pandemic had an impact on overseas students, skilled professionals, visitors, partners, and parents for more than a year. With the announcement of Australian borders to open by November 1, who can reach the country’s shores in the beginning, or who all are allowed initially?
A 1: Current announcements around relaxing border requirements are completely focused on Australian citizens, PR holders, or their immediate family members only. Temporary visa holders or students cannot still come to Australia unless they have been granted exemptions. For them, we are expecting around Feb/March announcements if not early.
