REVERSED -Retrospective removal high income English and skills exemptions – ENS/RSMS visa

The Government is removing the exemption for applicants earning over $180,000 per year for English language and skills assessments for the Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186) and Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (subclass 187).

In implementing this change, the Department will ensure it only affects applications lodged from 1 July.

The removal of the exemption is designed to prevent misuse of the program by individuals inflating their income to avoid having to undertake an English test or a skills assessment.

Applications lodged before 1 July will continue to be assessed on merit, and anyone suspected of inflating their incomes will be subject to further scrutiny in the application process.
