The Migration Agency worked with a client whose key employee applied for a permanent visa through her partner.
In the previous application, the partner had provided false and misleading information to the Department of Home Affairs and therefore was refused the visa as his dependent family member. The employee was also refused under the “one fails, all fail” rule and she was barred under section 48 of the Migration Act from applying for a further visa from within Australia due to the refusal.
With the support from The Migration Agency, we assisted the employee to lodge a waiver application due to being unable to meet Public Interest Criteria 4020 for a TSS visa under the sponsorship of her employer.
We developed a strategy for the employee to overcome the statutory bar and prepared a waiver submission addressing the criteria for the PIC 4020 waiver. As a result, the visa waiver application was successful.
