This just in from DIAC “newletter” –
In the interim, to streamline nomination processing, agents should still make sure that they are familiar with the current PAM guidance on genuineness and that they provide adequate supporting evidence when lodging a nomination application. As indicated in the PAM, in most cases case officers will consider this requirement met based on certifications made in the nomination application. They will, however, assess further whether they are satisfied that the position associated with the nominated occupation is genuine if they have concerns that:
a) the nominated position appears to have been created for the purpose of facilitating entry to, or remaining in, Australia;
b) the tasks to be performed by the nominee do not appear to be consistent with the nominated occupation; or
c) the nominated occupation does not appear to be consistent with the nature of the sponsor’s business.
