POEA to OFWs: Don’t pay for an Australian visa

Posted by:

warning

 

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs were advised by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) not to pay for their Australian visa for a job abroad.

 

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said applicants should be careful of job offer that requires payment for work or sponsorship visas.

 

The Australian government had passed its Migration Amendment Act last December 2015 which also prohibits sponsor, visa applicant or other third party engaging in a paid transaction for the following:

 

  • Nominating to sponsor a person
  • Becoming an approved sponsor
  • Threatening to dismiss someone affecting their visa status, and;
  • Withdrawing a nomination application

 

Violating this which is considered as criminal offense will result to two-years imprisonment or a fine of $64,000 for a person and $324,000 for a company or organization.

 

However, the Australian government said they will allow payment of a reasonable amount for professional fees to registered migration agents for services such as preparing, lodging, and advising the outcome of an immigration application.
