UPDATE - TUESDAY 31 MARCH 2020: This link just received from our whanaunga Keith Anderson living in Australia
PLEASE LET YOUR WHANAU IN AUSTRALIA KNOW THAT AT 6.30PM THIS EVENING (30 MARCH 2020) SCOTT MORRISON ANNOUNCED KIWIS ELIGIBLE FOR NEW AUSTRALIAN JOBSEEKER WAGE SUBSIDY: Kiwis at risk of losing jobs in Australia because of coronavirus will be eligible for a huge new wage subsidy scheme worth $1530 a fortnight.
But most completely unemployed Kiwis will remain ineligible for wider help from the Australian welfare system. The scheme will be open to Kiwis on "special category visas" - almost every New Zealander who has moved to Australia without upgrading to citizenship. The full announcement can be read on this link https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/120690651/coronavirus-kiwis-el...
Also, your Australian-based whānau can keep up with other assistance and entitlements they can access on this website https://www.nzrelo.com/the-truth-what-kiwis-in-australia-can-access-how/...
