TSMIT Fees Rise in July 2024


Starting July 1, 2024, the Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold (TSMIT) will be raised from $70,000 to $73,150. This adjustment aligns with the government's commitment made during the Jobs and Skills Summit in September 2022, emphasising a dedication to updating and improving the migration system.

What Does the TSMIT Increase Mean for Prospective Applicants?

For those considering applying for a temporary skilled migration visa, understanding the implications of the TSMIT increase is crucial. From July 1, 2024, all new nomination applications must meet the new TSMIT of $73,150 or the annual market salary rate for the occupation, whichever is higher. This ensures that the salary offered to skilled migrants is competitive and reflective of market standards.

However, it is important to note that this change does not affect current visa holders or nominations lodged before the July 1, 2024 deadline. They will continue to operate under the previous threshold of $70,000, ensuring a smooth transition and stability for those already in the process.
