On 30 July 2020, IARC made a submission to the Senate Select Committee on Temporary Migration, recommending:
- the removal of condition 8105 (40-hour work fortnight) from Student visas;
- amending condition 8607 to allow for at least 90 days for a visa holder to find a new sponsor with the possibility of a waiver of this condition where there is evidence of workplace bullying/harassment/exploitation; and
- there be a PR pathway created whereby holders of 457 visas or TSS visas working in their nominated occupation for a period of three years or more are automatically eligible to apply for a subclass 189 or 190 visa (without having to lodge an expression of interest and be invited to apply).
