Australia planning major policy changes in immigration

As the Australian elections are over and a new Minister for Home Affairs and Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs has been appointed, the country is planning policy changes in several key areas of immigration and the permanent residence in Australia.
Australia Immigration

The major changes are expected in the following matters:

  • Streamlining the immigration programs, both permanent and temporary.
  • Providing pathways to permanent residence in Australia and citizenship for those who work in successful arrangements and those who have the skills that are in shortage in Australia.
  • Reforming regional migration program.
  • Ensuring that temporary workers are paid as per Australian standards and that they are protected under Australian workplace law.

Streamlining pathways for permanent residence in Australia

The new government will introduce certain rules that would streamline permanent and temporary migration programs. It will give an opportunity for those who are working under successful arrangements. Moreover, those who have priority skills to apply for permanent residence in Australia.

This will benefit eligible foreign workers who wants a permanent residence in Australia. In addition, employers who want to ensure long-term work authorization for their employees.

Revamping regional migration program

The new government is planning certain policy changes which would encourage skilled migrants to take up jobs in rural areas of Australia. Such candidates will be offered priority processing and for the employees a large pool of talent to fill the skill gaps.

More benefits for temporary workers

The new government will be introducing rules to protect temporary overseas workers from exploitation and to ensure that they are paid and protected as per Australian workplace law. This will benefit temporary workers and employers will be required to meet higher minimum salary threshold requirements for temporary workers.

By implementing these changes, the Labour Party government of Australia is keeping their election promises made in 2019 that they would overhaul the key areas in Australia’s work visa program. But as a coalition government was formed, they focused more on continuing the existing policies. Moreover, now with majority in 2022, they are committed to implement these policy changes.
