LIN 20/184 Other as made
This instrument operates to specify, under regulation 1.15FA of the Migration Regulations 1994 (Regulations), areas of Australia and kinds of work for the purposes of the definition of specified Subclass 462 work in regulation 1.03 of the Regulations. Paragraphs 462.218(a) and 462.219(a) of Schedule 2 to the Regulations require an applicant for a second or third Subclass 462 (Work and Holiday) visa (Subclass 462 visa) to have carried out a period or periods of specified Subclass 462 work. It specifies critical COVID-19 work in the healthcare and medical sectors carried out after 31 January 2020 in any Australian postcode area for the purposes of the definition of specified Subclass 462 work in regulation 1.03 of the Regulations. It also inserts a timeframe, being ‘after 31 July 2019’, for the specification of bushfire recovery work. The inclusion of this timeframe at section 11 of the instrument ensures only bushfire recovery work carried out after 31 July 2019 counts towards meeting the eligibility criteria for a second or third Subclass 462 visa. This timeframe was omitted from LIN 20/104 due to a drafting error.
