October 2020 Changes
New Labour Market Testing requirements are being introduced through amending provision LIN 20/156. Employers must advertise on the Department’s Jobactive website in addition to two advertisements on job-search engines such as Seek and Indeed. This new requirement will apply to all nominations lodged after 30 September 2020. Employers intending to sponsor skilled visa applicants should be mindful of this date to ensure that the extra step is taken if lodging nomination applications on 1 October 2020 onwards. For employers who currently already meet LMT requirements, we recommend that you act quickly to avoid further delays related to new requirements.
