Subclass 186; 16 Nov 2019


In the closure of visa subclass 187 (Direct Entry Stream) on 16 Nov 2019, together with the craziness of information and legislation update for regional visas; visa subclass 491 and visa subclass 494, there also some changes for visa subclass 186 (Transitional Stream).

From 16 Nov 2019, there won't be any English language exemption for visa subclass 186; Transitional Stream.

"For the purposes of paragraphs 186.222(b) of Schedule 2 to the Regulations, persons who, at the date of application for a Subclass 186 have completed a minimum of five years of full-time study in a secondary or higher education institution where all tuition was delivered in English", this will be repealed on 16 Nov 2019.

All subclass 186; Transitional Stream visa applicants have until 15 Nov 2019, 8:30pm to lodge their visa application if they want to be exempted from their English language requirement.

We wish everyone the best.
We still have a few more days to rush this through.
Hang in there everyone.

Subclass 115 Remaining Relative Visa



Family is important unit of our life. It is hard to leave our loved one behind.

Visa Subclass 115 Remaining Relative is the Australian citizen or Australian PR (Permanent Resident) to bring the last family member to Australia as a Permanent Resident. 


However, please take note that this is an "offshore" application. The visa applicant needs to be outside of Australia on the lodging date. Hence, there is no Bridging Visa comes with it.

Please also take note that, the waiting period is around 32 years.

Will you wait for 32 years?
Please think carefully before lodging this visa application. 32-year is a LONG LONG time.

Subclass 186 & 187; 16 Nov 2019


We do understand that there might be some confusion about the changes coming this 16 Nov 2019.

Nothing changes for visa subclass 186, Employer Nomination Scheme this coming 16 Nov 2019.

Only subclass 187; RSMS Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme that will be abolished and replaced by subclass 494; Skilled Employer Sponsored.

Those who are on Medium and Long‑term Strategic Skills List, you still can proceed to subclass 186 as per normal. So, no panic.

Those who have or had applied for subclass 457 before or on 18 Apr 2017 (old rules), you still apply for visa subclass 186/187 as per normal, no panic.

The government will provide some transitional arrangement for those who are on 457/482 and will transit to subclass 187 (Transitional Stream ONLY), so please be patient and wait for some legislation announcement.

Those who want to apply for visa subclass 187 RSMS, usually Direct Entry (DE) you can still do so by 15 Nov 2019, 11:59pm.

Law and legislation changes are part of the Australian migration arena. You need to be in the game to win it.

Good luck everyone.
