Legislation Changes for 15 February 2009

Legislation Changes For 15 February 2009So this post made by “CHB” who is one of our community members, brought my attention to some Legislation Changes planned for the 15th of February.

Unfortunately, the page on the Aussie Governments Website says nothing more than:

The Notice of Legislative changes are expected to be published on this website from 5.00 pm AEDT (GMT + 11) Friday 13 February 2009.

I’m not sure what the changes will be at this stage. A number of our community members are speculating a potential change to the MODL (Migration Occupations in Demand List) or some other changes associated with State Sponsorship.

All I can say is the downturn in the economy is causing problems for countries around the world including Australia.

Many ‘skilled’ Australians are finding themselves out of work so this could have an impact on Australia’s requirements for skilled workers from overseas. Still, that’s just me speculating and I really hope it’s not bad news!

Migration Places To Be Cut If Coalition Gets Into Power

All I can suggest is don’t panic! As soon as we get the news we’ll report it here at Getting Down Under.
