***VISA UPDATE*** NEW Visa Pathway in Response to COVID-19

A new visa pathway was announced today to allow temporary visas holders to lawfully remain in Australia, and who would otherwise be required to leave but cannot leave due to the COVID-19 emergency. This visa pathway is part of the 408 visa "Australian Government Endorsed Event" stream.


The applicant must:

  • Be in Australia

  • Hold a visa that is 28 days or less from ceasing to be in effect, OR held a visa that ceased to be in effect no more than 28 days before the new 408 application

  • Does not meet the requirements to apply for the same temporary visa they hold (or held within 28 days) or for any other temporary visa apart from the Subclass 408 visa
