Visa 186 & 187 updates

Permanent visa update (Visa subclass 186 & 187)

1 July high income exemption changes
As previously advised, the AUD 180,000 high income exemption for English and Skill for the ENS (subclass 186) and Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (subclass 187) visa programs has been removed to strengthen the integrity of these visas by ensuring that applicants have the required skills and English language requirements irrespective of salary. 
The Department will, however, continue to apply the exemption as in force before 1 July 2017 to applications made prior to the 1 July 2017.  
This is to ensure that clients with applications in pre 1 July 2017 pipeline will not be negatively impacted by the change – with time of application requirements applying at the time of decision
