The new agreements will allow aged care providers to sponsor care members having appropriate skills from overseas while expanding the scope of work by sponsored religious workers and introducing a new occupation that religious institutions will be able to sponsor to work in Australia
The Australian Government has declared two new labour agreements that it claims will support the country’s multicultural communities.
The Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs, David Coleman revealed the labour agreements for the aged care sector and religious institutions on Thursday.
“Aged care providers have identified a need for bilingual care persons, as elderly people or those with dementia may revert to their native language or lose the ability to speak a second language,” Mr. Coleman said in a statement.
The Australian Government announced that under the new agreement, the aged care providers will be able to sponsor overseas workers for a Temporary Skills Shortage Visa or an Employer Nomination Scheme Visa provided that the employers can demonstrate that they are unable to meet the workers demand locally.
The religious institutions are broadening the scope for sponsoring overseas workers by introducing a new occupation of Religious Assistant and expanding the scope of work for the existing occupation of Minister of Religion. The new agreement will allow the visa nominee the flexibility to work in any senior position.
The Australian immigration Minister said that there are 23,000 Ministers of Religion in Australia and he expects strong growth in the numbers of both the Ministers of religion and religious assistants in the next five years. He said the need arise due to many multicultural faith-based communities raised concerns about difficulties in sourcing workers for religious institutions. Thus, this new measure will help address Australia’s religious worker skill shortage.
The sponsoring employer must be a religious institution under the Migration Regulations and provide evidence of charitable status. However, the new arrangement does not change the existing requirements of age and salary concessions. The arrangement comes in effect on 11 March 2019 and will continue to provide a pathway to permanent residency.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
