Tamwood, a well-established education institution, is being acquired by ILAC, the largest private education group in the country. The CEO of Tamwood, Tamsin Plaxton, made this announcement on LinkedIn, confirming speculations that had been circulating for several months.

Closure of the Pandemic Event visa


The Albanese Labor Government has announced the closure of the Pandemic Event visa. Starting February 2024, no new applications will be accepted, as the circumstances that led to its creation have changed. From September 2, 2023, only current holders can apply. Other visa holders will be ineligible as a transitional measure to improve the system.

Current Pandemic Event visa holders remain lawful until their visa expires. Recent measures reduce migration, aiding a return to pre-pandemic population growth. New applications from September 2, 2023, will grant a six-month visa with a $405 AUD fee, ensuring genuine contributions to Australia.

Pandemic Event visa holders seeking a different visa must meet its criteria. Those with no other options are expected to depart when their visa expires. Minister Giles emphasized the visa's importance during the pandemic and the government's commitment to fixing the migration system after years of mismanagement.
