The Australian Government has announced the arrival of three legislative updates including:

  1. expansion of the Accredited Sponsorship program
  2. updates to the Skilled Occupation Lists 
  3. signing of the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement.

In particular, KPMG welcomes an announcement made by Minister David Coleman that the Department of Home Affairs will expand the accredited sponsorship scheme and slash average processing time for Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) (subclass 482) visas.
