Changes to some residence pathways

The Government has announced that some of the planned additions to the Green List and the Construction and Infrastructure Sector Agreement will not progress.

The Work to Residence pathway for bus and truck drivers is closing to people who are not already working (or have applied to work) in a qualifying role.

Migrant high school leavers who are awaiting the outcome of a family residence application will soon be granted work rights. This change will come into effect around the middle of this year, with more information made available closer to this time.
