Australia to increase annual target for permanent residents by 35000

Australia to increase annual target for permanent residents by 35000

Australia has decided to increase the annual target for permanent residents by 35000. So, the target for the current financial year would be 195000. This is expected to provide a great relief to the businesses in Australia, which are struggling to qualified workers to fill the vacant positions.

Australia had closed its borders for immigrants following the COVID-19 outbreak. As the holiday workers and foreign students also left the country, why the businesses had been struggling owing to the dearth of workers. It was in December last year, Australia started to gradually reopen the borders for foreign workers and people restarted plans to migrate to Australia.

Efforts to admit more immigrants to Australia

Australia’s Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil, speaking at a government jobs summit, said this year, Australia would welcome thousands of nurses and engineers. Currently, Australia’s unemployment rate is the lowest in 50 years at 3.4 per cent.

Businesses in Australia have been urging the government to raise the cap on annual immigration from 160000 and make temporary changes to fill the labor shortage. Australia is now vying with other immigrant destinations to attract skilled workers to migrate to Australia. The country has decided to set up a panel for rebuilding its immigration program in the national interest. Further, the country is also planning to spend 36.2 million Australian dollars for increasing its staff capacity by 500 people for the next nine months, for speeding up the immigration processing.
