The window to become an accredited employer and get migrant workers earning more than $79,560 per annum onto a pathway for residence is fast closing.
The government signalled back in 2019 accreditation will become mandatory in mid-2021. What many have not realised is that the pathway to residence for migrant employees working for an accredited employer will close if they are not already on a work to residence visa.
If you have migrant workers and want to keep them permanently now is the time to move forward with accreditation. An application takes around 4 months to be processed plus the lead in time to get documentation prepared. Not much time left assuming the roll out of mandatory accreditation happens mid year.
