Northam & Associates has announced the launch of VisaChanges.com, a free online reference tool to track changes to Australian visas including changes to visa requirements and eligibility criteria such as occupation list changes and changes to language, age and other eligibility requirements for Australian visas.

“There has been an unprecedented number of detailed changes to Australian visas, especially employer sponsored visas and skilled visas, during the last few months. As Australia has one of the most complex visa systems in the world, we wanted to provide an easy to use one-stop reference tool for people to see the changes that affect the specific visa they are interested in, and created VisaChanges.com to provide this in an easy to understand format with a separate page for each visa,” said Australian immigration lawyer Mark Northam.

“We look forward to helping applicants better understand what visas and PR pathways they are eligible for, especially in the lead-up to more major changes coming next year for the 457 and other employer sponsored visas, and with next year’s anticipated major changes to partner and fiance visas. As more visa changes are announced for more visa subclasses, we’ll add areas to the reference tool to track those changes.”

The new online reference tool is available immediately and is separated into different sections for various visas:
