Australia government reduces the age limit of Subclass 189 to 44 years

From July 1, 2017 the few Australia immigration programs will work under different modification done by the government. In addition, the Australian authorities has also reduced the age limit for the subclass 189 which will take effect from the July 1.

Presently, the maximum age for applying under General Skilled Migration is 49 years. But from July, the age limit of its subclass 189 will be reduced from 49 to 44 years. However, the age limit for subclass 190 and skilled provisional visa 489 will remain 49 years.

According to Department of Immigration figures, only around 1% of applicants for the 189 subclass are between 45 and 49 at present. Whilst the overall impact on program numbers is small, for people between 45 and 49 the effect will be significant because the age limit for permanent employer sponsored is also being reduced to 44.
