Income concessions for sc189 NZ Stream applicants. The instrument ensures that New Zealand citizen temporary visa holders, who were on a pathway to permanent residence prior to 1 February 2020, continue to maintain eligibility to apply for a Subclass 189 visa.

Applicants can only use this COVID-19 concession for one of the required income years, claiming income exemption for either the 2019-20 income year or the 2020-21 income year, but not both years.

This amendment commenced on 14 November 2021 but is retrospectively applied from 1 July 2021
