You may have seen the measure below, from the Budget announced on 6/10/20. Minister Tudge’s office have clarified that this measure is for WHM visa holders who (a) had been granted a visa but had not arrived in Australia prior to travel restrictions; or (b) who departed Australia due to COVID-19 between March and September 2020.
COVID-19 Response Package — refunds and waivers of Visa Application Charges Receipts
The Government will refund or waive the visa application charge (VAC) for temporary visa holders affected by the COVID-19 travel ban.
Prospective Marriage, Pacific Labour Scheme and Seasonal Worker Programme visa holders will be able to access a VAC refund. Temporary skilled workers and visitor visa holders will be eligible to have the VAC for a subsequent visa application waived, to allow them to return to Australia once travel restrictions are lifted. Working holiday makers will be eligible to have the VAC for a subsequent visa application waived, to allow them to return to Australia once travel restrictions are lifted or otherwise be able to access a VAC refund.
VAC refunds and waivers will be available to current visa holders who are unable to travel until the border reopens.
The measure is estimated to reduce receipts by $275.0 million over the forward estimates period.
