The Australia Parent Visa income clause has been completely reversed by the Australian government. The regulation had effectively twice effected the income requirement for the sponsors of visas.
The government of Australia has formally scraped the visa rules of sponsorship for Assurance of Support. It was reported by the Australian media that the government backtracked on Australia Parent visa income clause to get a support in the Senate.
Dan Tehan, the Social Service Minister presented the documents in the parliament to formalize the reversal. This was done within 60 days of the introduction of the changes, as quoted by the SBS.
The negotiation was done by the Australian government with the Greens to revert the former rules.
The hike in income clause for Australia Parent Visa was introduced in April 2018. It suggested that the residents must have a high salary to sponsor their parents to immigrate to Australia. The new rule says that the residents must have an annual income of 86,704 per year to sponsor twin parents as opposed to 45,000$ per year.
Dan Trehan said that any applicant that applied for Australia Parent Visa after April would be re-evaluated as per the old regulations.
The reversal on the income clause has come into effect after a week-long backlash from the immigrant communities in Australia
