Immigration Policies Should Become Easier, Not Harder: FECCA
5 (100%) 1 vote

The Australian government should make the immigration process easier, not harder, for people who want to settle here permanently, according to Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia.

The Turnbull Government announced some of the biggest changes in decades to the citizenship standards earlier this morning.

Permanent residents of Australia will not have to spend nearly four years before they can appear for the ir citizenship test. The questions that will be asked during this test will not include questions such as “under what circumstances can you strike your spouse in the privacy of your own home?” and “Is it permissible to force children to marry?”

The level of English proficiency that will be required will be increased considerably.

The Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia (FECCA) has different view on the matter. It has stated that the government should extend a helping hand to aspiring immigrants in place pulling it back.

Joe Caputo, chairperson, FECCA stated that we should facilitate and make it easier for people to become part of the Australian society rather than making it more difficult and putting more hurdles before them.

People who come here and want to become permanent resident of Australia contribute towards the development of economy and they participate in various social activities. By making the process of Australian permanent residency difficult things will not get any better.

History is evident that Australia has always created opportunities for people from outside to settle here permanently. It is because of this reason Australia is one of the countries in the world that has the most diverse culture.

The measures announced by Immigration Minister Peter Dutton and Mr Turnbull is being viewed from another angel. Some people say that these changes are being planned to target Muslims.

This viewpoint was immediately rejected by Mr Dutton, stating that these changes are not being planned to target any community.

There will be opposition from some groups, but it looks like the Australian government will move ahead with its planned changes. It is certainly not a welcoming news for aspiring immigrants who want to make Australia there permanent home.

A better option is available in the form of Canada that still welcomes immigrants with open arms.

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is the government department that looks after immigration and refugee matters in Canada.

IRCC has issued a temporary public policy with the aim to ease certain foreign nationals who have been affected by the Executive Order that was signed on January 27, 2017 by US President Donald Trump.

As per this temporary public policy, foreign nationals who have been affected by the executive order can extend their stay or apply for temporary status in Canada.

Due to US Executive Order, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iraq, and Iran citizens are barred from coming to US for a period of 90 days. Indefinite banned has been imposed on Syrian citizens from entering the United States.

The temporary public policy from IRCC comes soon after the press conference from Canada immigration minister Hussen. According to the statement made by Hussen, he gives assurance to those who are stranded in Canada due to executive order to apply for temporary residency in case the need arises.

The Canadian government has taken up measures that will allow eligible foreign nationals in Canada to live and work in the country temporarily in case they do not have any other means of support.

There is no fee charged on the applications submitted for this type of temporary residency.

Applicants are, however, required to give an explanation as to how they are affected and should meet the admissibility criteria of Canada.

Designated officers have been advised by the policy to consider exemption from Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) for foreign nationals from Somalia, Libya, Sudan, Iran and Syria.

As Ahmed Hussen, the immigration minister of Canada signed the public policy, he highlighted Canada’s approach to act with humanitarianism and compassion, and this public policy is in line with that.

As per the policy foreign nationals can be given exemption from IRPA regulations as per the following situations:

A foreign national can apply for a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) in case he or she made travel arrangement to come to US and is not able to do so. Such individuals should be having a visa and related documents that are required to enter US in normal circumstances. He or she should be eligible to enter Canada except for he or she is not able to obtain a Temporary Resident Visa.

The present government of Canada under the leadership of Justin Trudeau is gearing up to bring in new changes to the immigration system that is there at present. John McCallum who is the minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship made the announcement as he visited the Peel region.

Some time back the Trudeau government had asked for public opinion on what changes they want to bring in to the present immigration structure. The visit to Peel by McCallum was part of the consultation process that was held by the government across the country.

The Liberal Party had promised at the time of 2015 election campaign to bring in essential changes to the immigration policies. The latest moves are in part to fulfill what was promised by the government.

The minister was in Mississauga and Brampton to discuss matters related to Canada immigration with stakeholders and local members of the parliament. One of the many things that were discussed included expediting the process of family class immigration.

2 Years Is A Big Gap To Enable Families To Reunite

McCallum stated that the government is working towards sorting out the issue of delay in granting the family class visa. The government is committed to bring down the processing time in this business visa category. According to the present structure, it takes nearly two years for a wife to reunite with her husband who is working and living in Canada.

By streamlining the working procedure and improving upon the operating time, the Liberal government plans to make the process more lean and efficient. In the coming fall season, changes will also be brought to skilled and family class Canada visa, along with visitor’s visa and economic category.

International Students in Canada Can Easily Become the Permanent Resident

Markham-Thornhill MP stated that the government of Canada wants to make the process of admission of family class and economic immigrants more efficient and also wants to make it easy to take in refugees.

It will also be easier for international students to become a permanent resident of Canada said the MP. The government proposes to make the process of becoming a permanent resident of Canada easier than that of other countries like USA, UK and Australia.
