The Australian Immigration Section at the Australian High Commission has created a monthly newsletter to assist applicants and agents with the visa application process. 

In each monthly edition we will provide information on aspects of the application process and provide links to the Department of Home Affairs’ website.  There will also be a SPOTLIGHT feature that provides a little more information on certain immigration topics.  As updates are announced by the Department of Home Affairs, details and links will be provided.
