    How the Covid-19 Restrictions affect temporary residents in Australia

    How the Covid-19 Restrictions affect temporary residents in Australia

    This episode is the recording of a stream we did to look at the issues for temporary residents in Australia in many visa subclasses. 

    The most important thing to remember is that while you hold a Visa you must apply for another Visa BEFORE your current visa expires.
    So if you’re on a Visa and it is expiring soon, you must apply for a new Visa.
    If you need specific advice, make an appointment with David on the migratingtoaustraliapodcast.com website or reach out on Twitter @davidbongiorno.

You guys need a system and a variety of topics

Interesting podcast. Hard to listen. Both of the speakers interrupt each other quite often, jumping from topics sometimes leaving something unexplained or unclear. I wish they also numbered their podcast and implemented a system as it would be easier for listeners. It also seems that they talk a lot about Partner visas and not much about other types, such parent, business or other working visas.
