The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) is modernising and simplifying Australia's current visa framework.
To help inform consideration of visa simplification, DIBP will consult the public, including stakeholders, on design elements of the new visa system.
Public consultations are now open and will conclude on 15 September 2017.
These consultations will comprise a broad programme of engagement with industry, sectors of the community and other interested parties, and will include stakeholder forums.
DIBP are seeking written submissions, and have released a policy consultation paper to support the public and other stakeholders in developing their response to visa simplification.
For more information on how to prepare and make a submission, see the Department of Immigration and Border Protection's website.
