    Hi Guys,

     

    I got some rumors from friends that DIAC may change some 887 policy. So I then check out on the comlaw.gov.au website re this changes and I found this statement.

     

    Schedule 2 Amendments relating to skills

    (regulation 4)

    [1] Schedule 1, after paragraph 1136 (3) (b)

    insert

    (ba) If the applicant:

    (i) is not seeking to satisfy the criteria for the grant of a Subclass 887 (Skilled — Regional) visa; and

    (ii) has not nominated a skilled occupation specified by the Minister in an instrument in writing for paragraph (bb);

    the applicant’s skills must have been assessed by the relevant assessing authority as suitable for the applicant’s nominated skilled occupation.

    (bb) If the applicant:

    (i) is not seeking to satisfy the criteria for the grant of a Subclass 887 (Skilled — Regional) visa; and

    (ii) has nominated a skilled occupation specified by the Minister in an instrument in writing for this paragraph;

    the applicant’s skills must have been assessed by the relevant assessing authority, on or after 1 January 2010, as suitable for the applicant’s nominated skilled occupation.

    It means that our skills that we obtained when we was on temp 495/487 need to be assessed again ??? I m not sure.
