Cooperate with inspectors

    You must cooperate with inspectors appointed under the Migration Act 1958 (the Act) who are investigating whether:
  • a sponsorship obligation is being, or has been, complied with
  • you have hired an illegal worker
  • there are other circumstances in which we might take administrative action.
    This obligation:
  • starts on the day the sponsorship is approved
  • ends five years after the day the approved sponsorship ends.
    Cooperating with inspectors can include (but is not limited to):
  • providing access to premises
  • producing and providing documents within the requested timeframe
  • not preventing or attempting to prevent access to a person who has custody of, or access to, a record or documents
  • providing officers with access to interview any person on their premises.
