Migration (COVID-19 Pandemic event for Temporary Activity (Subclass 408) visa) Instrument (LIN 22/046) 2022 applies to applications made on or after 21 February 2022.
The purpose of the instrument is to expand the kind of work an applicant can be doing, or have an offer to do, to be eligible for grant of a Subclass 408 visa by removing the limitation to work in key sectors. This will support businesses across the Australian economy as they recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The instrument removes the specified class of persons for visa holders in Australia who are unable to depart as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Removing this class reflects that international borders are now open and difficulties faced by individuals seeking to leave Australia at the beginning of, and during, the pandemic no longer exist.
