Immigration outreach officers visit
Special information seminars will take place in the North Coast next week following the federal government’s recent announcement of changes to the skilled migration program.
Local residents will also be able to discuss other migration and visa matters during the visits by officers from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC).
A DIAC spokesman said it was good chance for people to ask questions of an immigration officer directly.
“While the department has a lot of information available over the phone or on the internet, some people may not be aware of recent policy changes or they may prefer to speak to officers face-to-face,” he said. “In the past, the most popular topics related to citizenship, working visas, visas for family members and the process for proposing refugees.”
A seminar on skilled migration options will be held next Monday, February 22, from 3-5pm at the office of Regional Development in the Rous Water building, level 3, 218 Molesworth St, Lismore. To confirm attendance, phone Rhett Henkel on 0401 99 8817.
Immigration officers are also available for one-on-one appointments in Lismore next Tuesday, February 23, from 9am to 3pm. Bookings are essential. Phone 6621 9909.
