Updated September 27, 2018 09:00:52 The Prestige travel agents is one of the few that still has a visa-free policy.
This is because it was the first company to go visa-only and the other two are still offering the same.
But the Australian Government’s new visa policy means that it will soon become impossible for many overseas companies to open their doors to Australians.
Prestige CEO Mark Wiedeman says the changes will impact businesses that are already operating under strict conditions.
“The restrictions on entry have affected our business for a long time,” he said.
“So the changes to the visa policy that the Australian government is putting in place now will affect our business and that’s why we’ve decided to take it a step further and open up our doors to Australian customers.”
The changes are part of the Government’s push to streamline and simplify visa applications.
Under the new regime, overseas companies can apply for a visa online.
They can then apply to enter Australia if they are eligible for a green card.
Prestigie will be the first to go online.
This has been done to help expedite the process for businesses.
“It’s really good for the businesses, it’s really hard for them to get through the system,” Mr Wiedemann said.
“I think that the new visa system will help with the process.”
If a business is interested in entering Australia, they’re going to have to go through a process and they’re probably going to go to a third country, which is the point of going to Australia.
The change will apply to all businesses operating in Australia under any brand name. “
This is a great change, and hopefully we’ll see the benefit in the future as well,” he says.
The change will apply to all businesses operating in Australia under any brand name.
It applies to those that are part-owned by Australian citizens, but it doesn’t apply to those owned by foreigners.
For businesses that aren’t a part of a brand, it will apply if the business’s total annual turnover is more than $10 million.
While the change won’t affect the existing business, it could mean that many businesses that have already been operating under a strict visa regime will be forced to change their plans.
Prestige’s CEO says the new policy is being rolled out across the industry.
“We’re actually starting to roll it out across our entire business and I think there’s probably going in that we’ll be seeing a lot of business that have never gone visa-based in the next 12 to 18 months,” he told news.com,port.
Mr Wiedema says there is a lot more to be done.
“I think this is just one piece of the puzzle but we’re doing a lot.
We’ve opened up our offices in New York City and we’ve opened our office in Sydney.
We’re opening our office here in Australia.”
Mr Haddad is also hopeful that Prestige will be able to open its doors to more overseas clients.
“Our customers have been very understanding, they know what our business is about and they want to have access to the best in Australia,” he added.
But for some businesses, there’s little to cheer about.
When it comes to overseas travel, Mr Haddada says that there’s still a lot to be desired.
He’s not concerned about the change.
I think it’s a good thing to go forward and I’m sure that the industry will do it’s best to make sure that people are able to have a normal life and that they’re able to be able open their businesses and have the freedom to be in Australia as well, he said in an interview with the ABC.
In his view, it doesn,t take much to make a business visa-friendly.
“You can open up your business and you can get your business passport and all of that is possible.
It doesn’t take very much for a business to be compliant with the Australian rules.
You can apply to get your passport, get your visa, apply for your business visa, open your business,” he explained.
