China Livid After Australian Government's Hong Kong Visa, Extradition Treaty Announcements


Recommended Posts


China is accusing Australia of “gross interference” and issued a warning if the country doesn’t stop “meddling” in its internal affairs.


The uproar comes after the Australian government gave a number of current visa holders from Hong Kong a five-year extension, as well as offering them a path to permanent residency. The government also suspended an extradition treaty with Hong Kong.

“If you’re a temporary graduate or skilled visa holder, your visa will be extended to provide an additional five years from today, in addition to the time you’ve already been in Australia, with a pathway to permanent residency at the end of that period,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison told reporters.

“And we will also provide a five-year visa with a pathway to permanent residency for future Hong Kong applicants for temporary skilled visas, subject to meeting an updated skills list and appropriate labor marking testing.”:snip:
