Developments in migration policy for 2012 - Looking Back

Firstly, I can make reference to an insightful blog by a representative of DIAC.   Kruno Kukoc, First Assistant Secretary Migration and Visa Policy Division, Department of Immigration and Citizenship.  The below blog summarises some of DIAC’s policy initiatives for 2012.

It is a good summary of some of the changes and the intentions underlying the changes.

Secondly, I can add my own observations on the negative effects of changing so many major visa categories at the same time, from the 1 July 2012.  These included a surge in visa applications prior to visa changes, with the potential of significant processing  delays due to these numbers, and ongoing technical difficulties for the new SkillSelect  electronic visa system.
