What's New

The Assistant Minister set a cap for offshore General Skilled Migration (GSM) visas which took effect on 22 September 2015. The following visas are affected:

*Skilled Independent (subclass 175)

*Skilled Sponsored (subclass 176)

*Skilled Regional Sponsored (subclass 475)

The cap sets the maximum number of places that can be granted in the 2015-16 financial year for these visa subclasses. This total has already been reached. Therefore, applications for these visas that were not finalised before 22 September 2015 are taken not to have been made and the relevant visa application charge will be repaid to affected visa applicants.

For comprehensive information on this, please refer to our department's website by clicking here.

To support the integration, a new website has been launched at From 1 July, internet searches for and will redirect to this new address.

Some pages will automatically redirect to the new location. You will need to fix any broken links, bookmarks or favourites in your system from 1 July 2015. The new URLs to specific webpages will not be available before this date.
