Australia Boosts Regional Visas to Settle Immigrants Outside Major Cities
The government of Australia said on 26 Oct 2019 that it is raising the number of visas for skilled professionals who are willing to migrate to Australian regional areas in a bid to ease pressure on larger cities, where populations are increasing twice as quick as elsewhere.

New Immigration Plan by Australian Government

The government will raise the intake beneath its regional migration program from 23,000 to 25,000, as per the statement published by the Australian PM’s office. That does not imply that Australia will be accepting more immigrants.

Australian conservative government cut the yearly immigration intake to 160,000 individuals as of July 1, versus 190,000 previously. The 25,000 visas for those who are ready to live in smaller cities and regional areas are a portion of the yearly migration cap.

Approximately one-third of the Australian resident populations were born abroad, as per the Economic Co-operation and Development Organization shortly known as OECD.

Australia is a highly urbanized nation with one of the biggest population increase rates in the O.E.C.D, which has nearly two-thirds of its population residing in the capitals of territories and states, as per the 2016 Australian government census data.

Between 2017 & 2018 the number of individuals living in those cities grew at twice the rate the number of individuals living outside them, new government data reveal. Capital city increase estimated for 79% of Australia’s entire population growth.

So Australia using its migration program to back Australian regions to grow and to take the population pressure off from larger capital cities and by promoting strong regions that create an even more powerful economy for Australia, PM said.

Migrants ready to live in areas outside of Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane will have a way to priority processing and global university graduates who reside in these areas will be eligible to appeal for more time in Australia with a post-study work visa.
