Visa options if over 45 years old

July 20, 2017

Recent changes to the migration regulations have made it more challenging and in many cases unlikely that one will ultimately be able to obtain permanent residence. There may still, however, be the options for temporary visas.

 

Visas impacted by age  

 

General Skilled Migration

  • As from 1 July 2017, if the primary applicant is over 45 years of age then they are no longer eligible to apply for General Skilled Migration as the Primary applicant. This includes subclass 189, 190 and 489 visas

 

Permanent Employer nominated visas 

  • As from 1 July 2017, Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 186 ) and Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (Subclass 187) visas under the direct entry stream are no longer possible for those over 45.

  • Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 186 ) and Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (Subclass 187) visas under the Temporary Transition Pathway are still available to under 50’s. From sometime in March 2018 this will also end and be reduced to 45 years old too. If you do qualify under the temporary transition pathway it is suggest that you seek immediate assistance and do not delay, as your time is running out and after March 2018 you may no longer be eligible.

 

Visas not impacted by age

Temporary Employer Nominated Visas (Subclass 457)

  • One can still apply for subclass 457 or its replacement the TSS/Subclass 482 visa as these do not have an age requirement.
