Reduced Work Hours and Eligibility for Subclass 186 TRT Visa
To be eligible for a subclass 186 TRT visa, you must have worked for your nominated employer full time for three years. However, with the COVID-19 outbreak, many workers have reduced their work hours or were forced to take unpaid leave.
The changes to Migration Regulations will now allow subclass 457/482 visa holders to apply for the subclass 186 TRT despite not working full-time during the concession period (1 February 2020).
Age and Fair Work High Income Threshold Exemption
Usually, you must be under 45 years of age to apply for Subclass 186. However, you may be eligible for an age exemption for Subclass 186 if the candidates can attract a salary at or above the Fair Work high-income threshold.
However, eligible ‘coronavirus concession worker’ applicants will continue to qualify for the age exemption, despite their earnings being affected by a coronavirus employment change. The Department may apply the pro-rata income threshold.
This applies to all applications made on or after 1 February 2020.
