ENS Direct Entry Stream; 186

I have never pay attention to ENS Direct Entry Stream much, however this ENS Direct Entry Stream suddenly appeal to me because:

  • people on any bridging visas (A/B/C); BVA, BVB or BVC can apply for subclass 186. This is one of the best option for those people who are on MRT.
  • people who are on bridging visa E (BVE) because his/her outcomes from MRT turn sour, s/he can still stay in Australia and wait for ENS (186) decision in Australian...again, this is one of the best option for people who has problems with MRT.
  • it doesn't matter whether you are onshore or offshore, you and your family members can apply for this subclass 186...amazing!!!
Of course, there is a catch here:
  • you need to have your IELTS 6 (all 4 bands; speaking, reading, writing and listening).
  • skill assessment.
  • employer who willing to sponsor you (well....you can set up your own company and use that company to sponsor yourself).
  • 3 years full-time or 6 years part-time working experience (doesn't have to be with your sponsor).

Family stream visa changes

Last week there was sudden change in migration program due to the 2014 budget program. Government did not wait for 1 July to implement the changes. It has cut few of visas from family stream as follow. All this changes take effect from 2 June 2014:
  • Parent Visa (subclass 103)
  • Aged Parent Visa (subclass 804)
  • Aged Dependent Relative Visa (subclass 114 & 838)
  • Remaining Relative Visa (subclass 115 & 835)
  • Carer Visa (subclass 116 and 836)
As we might have noticed that this government never hesitate to implement whatever policy they have in mind. When they want to implement something, they will "just do it". Much different from previous government. Guess that everyone needs to be on the game and be ready at all time. Don't blink your eyes! Things might change before know it.
