Dear Mrs Wicks

Thank you for your letter of 18 June 2018 regarding Petition EN0578 - Assurance of Support Scheme. I appreciate the time you have taken to bring this matter to my attention.

An amended Determination was registered on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments on 23 May 2018 that returns the Assurance of Support requirements, including the income threshold for assurers, to the settings that were in place prior to 1 April 2018. The changes will apply from 1 April 2018, so as not to disadvantage a person or organisation who has applied for an Assurance of Support since this date.

Further information on these changes can be found at

Thank you for raising this matter with me.

Yours sincerely

from the Minister for Social Services, Mr Tehan
