18 January | 09:00 - 10:00 | Webinar | Open for all

Join NORWEP webinar Tuesday, 18 January 2022 as Fortress Australia moves to bring down her borders and welcomes the business world.

Australia’s border closures have had an unprecedented impact on cross-border mobility. However, as the average national and state vaccination rates are expected to pass 80 per cent, Australia will transition into the “Consolidation Phase” of the nation’s COVID-19 response plan. This is expected to bring about significant increases in the capped entry of employer-sponsored visa holders and the caps on returning vaccinated Australian citizens and permanent residents abolished. To be the first to benefit from the easing of these restrictions, preparation will be key.

In this webinar, Jacqui Ure and Reuben Saul of Estrin Saul Migration Specialists will explore ways for business owners and Human Resource professionals in the oil, gas and energy sectors to effectively manage their cross-border workforces during this transition. They will provide insight into how you can best position your business to best benefit from the changes to border restrictions and Australia’s employer-sponsored migration programs.
