More Good News on PIC 4020

The Australian government made changes to regulations last week that affect how PIC 4020 will apply to some people. The changes take effect from 23 November.

The changes to PIC 4020 mean that exclusions of 3 or 10 years will not be enforced if the person applying is under 18 at the time the application was made.

People under 18 will still have their current application refused if they do not meet the rules under PIC 4020, but will not be subject to the exclusion period for later fresh applications.

The intention of the changes is that children should not be affected by mistakes made by their parents.

If you are affected by PIC 4020, the Sledgehammer PIC, then contact Career Up as soon as you can for advice on your options.
