IMMIGRATION – SKILLED AND EDUCATION MIGRATION
CDP has observed that some people use the skilled visa policy and the education policy as a means to circumvent the Boarder Protection and the Immigration Policies of Australia and hence a greater scrutiny on applicants seeking citizenship via this means will be put into place.
Skilled temporary visas entitle the applicant to come to Australia within the strict conditions of their visa, but it cannot be a stepping stone to staying indefinitely in Australia.
Education visas entitle the applicant to come to Australia for study purposes and it may contain some employment conditions as well.
The alteration of a visa may not happen within Australia unless the alteration is of a minor nature.
