Key points from the Annual Migration Conference

October 2013, 29
EMAIL  Print A+

Recently in Canberra the annual conference on migration has just been chaired by the Department together with the Migration Institute of Australia or MIA. The event was unprecedented by the largest gathering of distinguished guests from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). It was represented by its newly sworn in Hon. Scott Morrison, and the Assistant Minister, Senator Michaela Cash.

The MIA’s conference culminates in the biggest migration forum in Australia. Participants and delegates discussed matters relevant to current issues regard the conference’s theme of Migration Shaping.


The two-day event raised a lively, interactive and informative forum. Some of the topics that were discussed emphasized the following:

  • The Government recognizes the economic growth of Australia gains valuable assistance from the recruitment of skilled people via correct immigration channels.
  • The Government is seeking an effective system to be put in place that will strongly emphasise the need for compliance adherence thus ensuring a fully working system as intended.
  • The Department and Government feels the need to have a close working relationship with Registered Migration Agents regarding such concerns.
  • The Government would like to instigate a return of the Significant Investor Visa proposing a processing turnaround of three months. Currently there are 470 applications in situ, of which, 39 have already been granted.
  • The Government is looking to completely streamline the current business skills visa process and address the issues of long processing delays.
  • The Department is currently considering the implementation of English Language Testing levels via providing agents. This may be subject to rationalization of the complete implementation process for future planning. A recent presentation on this very issue has now been provided. It highlights the current situation, and alternative solutions were also offered.
  • It is generally hoped that an allowance for red tape reduction will be made. It is also expected that the Government will maintain a serious stance for all matters of compliance.

The general consensus after the meeting was rather positive. It is now safe to expect an increase in consultation, together with more cooperative government and the Department on discussed matters.

There has also been an indication from the opposition that they would be happy to support such a “bi-partisan” approach towards the administrative bodies of Migration and the Australian Migration Program. It is hoped by all that going forward, such a program will prove to be beneficial for Australia.
