The Australian Immigration Department has disclosed an annual report of 2012/2013 migration program, which recorded a total of 190,000 places indicating 5,000 places more than 2011/2012 migration program.

 The report reveals that the Australia SkillSelect program, which was introduced in the month of July 2012, has contributed to the huge rise in visa grants by delivering approximately 38% of the general skilled migrants of the skilled work force.

The skill stream contributed 67.9% to the total migration program, accounting to a total of 128,973 places.
