Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 30 July 2007, amend the Immigration Regulations 1999 (the principal regulations) to—

  • include the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade posts located in Honiara, Niue, Port Moresby, Port Vila, Rarotonga, and Tarawa as designated receiving offices for applications, appeals, and other matters in respect of which fees are payable under the separate fee category in column B of Part 1 of Schedule 3 of the principal regulations. That category, which is renamed the Pacific or Sydney category, also includes the designated receiving offices in Apia, Nuku'alofa, and Suva:

  • exempt the citizens of a country that is a member of the Pacific Islands Forum from the requirement to pay the fee for an application for a transit visa if transiting to or from 1 of the 14 Pacific countries listed in regulation 3(a) of the Immigration (Transit Visas) Regulations 2005:

  • remove the requirement for an applicant under the work to residence (skilled migrant category) policy who is issued with a temporary visa or granted a temporary permit to pay a migrant levy before being issued with that visa or being granted that permit:

  • substitute a new Part 1 of Schedule 3 of the principal regulations.

The new Part 1 of Schedule 3—

  • changes many of the fees payable for applications, appeals, and other matters set out under the Part; and

  • renames the separate fee category under column B of the Part as the Pacific or Sydney category; and

  • renames the refugee family quota category as the refugee family support category.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 28 June 2007.
