The Australian government has updated the priority categories for processing permanent, skilled and temporary work visas. Applications will be processed in the Employer Sponsored Temporary Work and Permanent or Provisional Skilled Migration categories as follows.
Employer Sponsored Temporary Work – Subclass 482
Permanent or Provisional Skilled Migration
Additional Information: The updated categories give the highest priority to Hong Kong or British national passport holders. More information regarding skilled visa priority processing can be found here.
BAL Analysis: The priority processing lists are complex but the changes made to them do not substantially change last year’s lists. Processing times are not expected to change substantially. BAL continues to monitor changes in priority processing categories and will provide additional information as it becomes available.
