Heavy! Australia may greatly improve the "character test"! The number of people who refuse visas or cancel PR may increase by 5 times! With the legal retrospective period, crimes cannot escape and be expelled! Do you support it?
Australian Prime Minister Morrison
Shouted the slogan "Safer Australia" during the campaign
He has always promised all Australians
The new government will use practical actions for Australians
Create a safer living environment
Just now, Australian green card holders (PR)
Became one of the targets of this slogan
A bill waiting to be reviewed by the Senate
The number of Australian PR visas that may be rejected and cancelled
Soaring 5 times, immigration to Australia will be more difficult
01What kind of bill amendment
Make Australian immigrants "shivering"?
In fact, the Australian government recently
Proposed a "strictest in history"
"Revised character test proposal"
The proposal requires a substantial increase
Australian immigration "character test difficulty"
If the proposal is passed, non-Australian citizens (including PR)
If committed a serious crime punishable by 2 years of imprisonment
Even if he was not actually sentenced to imprisonment
Even ordinary crime
It may also be refused or cancelled
What makes immigrants more fearful is
The bill will have"Retroactive effect of law"
This means that after the amendment of the bill is passed
Even the crimes committed before may be prosecuted
This became the controversial area of this bill
Immigration researcher and former Labour Party policy adviser
Henry Sherrell stated that
The amendment to this bill has attracted people’s attention
The most important point is here, it is very likely
Some PRs have been in Australia for a long time, although they have made mistakes
But they have already accepted the punishment of the law
I have paid the price for my mistakes
If the bill passes, it means these people
Will still be affected
If this bill change is passed
For Australia PR will be a major change
If this proposal is finally passed and implemented
Will cause thousands of unlikely
People who pose a threat to the community are forced to leave Australia
Against this argument
Many netizens said: Has everyone been sentenced to 2 years in prison?
Does his approach really harm the community?
More stringent character tests can really help
Keeping Australia's community safe
But many people also said
A stricter bill is a good thing
But if you go to the previous case
It might be a little inappropriate
Modification of the last character test
It happened to be the current Prime Minister Morrison
I did when I was Minister of Immigration
The government at the time cancelled about 4150 visas
The coalition government has always tried
Improve the difficulty of character testing
02Australia "Character Test"
What are you testing?
In fact, many people who obey the law
I don’t even understand what a character test is
In fact, to put it simply, Australian non-citizens
Including various visa groups such as PR
All need to meet Australia’s "character test"
The most important thing is to have no criminal record,
No threat to Australia, no violence
And will not be suspected of being linked to certain organizations, etc.
– Have a substantial criminal record.
"Substantial criminal"—"serious criminal record" mainly includes:
*Sentenced to death or life imprisonment
*Sentenced to jail for more than 12 months
*Sentenced to jail more than 2 times, the total time is more than 12 years and months
*Convicted of a mental illness crime and sent to the relevant detention center (that is, he did commit a crime but did not go to prison for some reason)
– Have tried to escape immigration detention, or committed a crime during/before and after immigration detention.
– There is reason to suspect that this person is a member of an organization or has any connection with the organization. (This type of organization refers to those that violate the criminal law).
– By referring to the person’s past and current criminal records or the person’s past or current behavior, it is found that this person does not have a "good character".
-When this person enters Australia, this person will pose a'threat' to the safety of the Australian people, that is, this person will participate in criminal offenses in Australia, sexually assault others, or participate in some violent actions harmful to social security.
I believe that most people approve of this character test
After all, "these people" are likely to endanger the lives of ordinary people
Australia is Immigration Minister David Coleman said
Improving the character test is very important
Australia must tell the world clearly
Australian visas will only be issued to people of good character
Entering and staying in Australia is a privilege ("privilege")
Not a right ("right")
Those who break the law and fail to comply with Australian standards of conduct
I should expect to lose this privilege
Think about it carefully, this seems to be fine
03New Zealanders injured the most
Three serious crimes cannot be forgiven
According to "Newstar Education Immigration"
In 2018, Australia had 888 visas
It was cancelled because the character test failed
The top three crimes are:
Drug crimes, assaults, and child sex crimes
These are all crimes that Australia has cracked down on
As the largest group of immigrants in Australia
Among these cancelled visas, New Zealand nationality ranks first
Only 22 people of Chinese nationality were cancelled throughout the year
That is, even if the bill is finally passed
For us Chinese, the impact is not very big
In fact, the Australian visa
The biggest cancellation group is working holiday and student visa
This is also the type of visa that the two types of Chinese get the most
The main reason for the cancellation of the holding working holiday visa is
When renewing the second working holiday visa
Provided false work experience materials
Or the work experience materials provided cannot verify the authenticity
The student visa (subclass 500) is mainly due to
Did not pay tuition or attendance rate did not meet the minimum requirements of the school
Or maybe the grades did not meet the requirements
So don’t think you just don’t sin
No matter what kind of visa you are in Australia
Obey the law and do things in accordance with visa rules
To be able to enjoy the "privilege" of entering Australia smoothly
