Perth, Gold Coast Considered as Regional Areas to Attract More Immigrants

The Australian government is raising intake beneath its regional migration program from 23,000 to 25,000 following the initial victory of the initiative and will no longer classify Gold Coast and Perth as "major cities" to make them targets for both international students and skilled migrants.

Australian Regional Visas Allocation

Below the program announced at the beginning of this year, 23,000 positions would be retained for migrants who commit to work and live in Australian Regional Areas. If they willing to live and work in the regions for a minimum of three years, they will be eligible for Australia PR.

David Coleman, Immigration Minister said 6,000 visas were permitted below the program in the initial three months of the current financial year, related to below 3,000 in the last quarter of 2018-19 and before the initiative going underway.

So we have noticed a very strong beginning in the year in promoting regional migration,' Mr. Coleman said to reporters in Sydney on 26 Oct 2019.

We will be raising the allotment for regional places in our immigration system for this year, from 23,000 places to 25,000 places.

The regional Australia definition for migration purposes will also modify: Gold Coast and Perth will no longer be listed as “major cities” to support the areas to bring more foreign students and skilled migrants. The latest definition will come into force on 16 November 2019.

These reforms will promote the appeal for several cities and regional centers that are attending to increase their population to assist local services like health care and schools, while bringing new workers and students, indicating more opportunities and more investment.

As part of the latest ambitious plan, the Australian government will deploy “regional officers” to the Gold Coast, Perth, and other regional areas, that includes Hobart, Newcastle, and Wollongong.

On 1 October 2019, Mr. Coleman said to the Gold Coast Bulletin that the area must remain listed as a metro area.

The division of the Gold Coast as a metropolitan center has not modified as a consequence of the Government’s decision, the minister stated at the time.
