The media release by Hon Alan Tudge MP, Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs, states: There are around 139,000 temporary skilled visa holders …. They were provided the visa to fill a skills shortage … that may still be present when the crisis has passed… those visa holders who have been stood down, but not laid off, will maintain their visa validity and businesses will have the opportunity to extend their visa … Businesses will also be able to reduce the hours of the visa holder without the person being in breach of their visa condition… These visa holders will also be able to access up to $10,000 of their superannuation this financial year…Those visa holders who have been laid off due to coronavirus should leave the country … if they are unable to secure a new sponsor… should a 4-year visa holder be re-employed after the coronavirus pandemic, their time already spent in Australia will count towards their permanent residency skilled work experience requirements. NOTE: this is not yet reflected in any change in legislation or regulations.
