Department of Home Affairs: STA Member Briefing

29 August, 2022 at 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

On 1 July 2022, the Migration Regulations 1994 were amended to establish additional targeted visa screening for Student visas and a new visa condition for students wishing to change their course of study. These amendments are intended to identify and manage the risk of unwanted transfer of critical technologies in certain visa programs; the visa screening framework will apply to certain other temporary and permanent visas no later than 6 October 2022.

Although the amendments commenced on 1 July, the Minister for Home Affairs is yet to release the specific list of critical technologies that will underpin the visa screening framework, and so no students are yet affected.

To help STA members understand the implications of the new regulations, we have organised for officials from the Department of Home Affairs to provide a briefing session and answer your questions directly.

Registration is essential. Please email events@sta.org.au for a calendar invitation.
