Statistics for 2017-18 Say India is A Top Source for Australia Migration

India remains to be the top source of the nation for migrants to Australia. Currently, available statistics reveal the number of migrants from India during the twelve months ended Jun 2018 is 33,310. Although Indians were the most significant constituency, there was a 20.5% drop in their numbers. These numbers include skill stream migrants, family stream migrants, and migrants in the special eligibility stream, but except those on student visas.

Australian Government Latest Immigration Plan

A current announcement by the government of Australia on the reduction of the migration limit by 15% excluding student visas to 1.60 lakh for the financial year 2019-2020, which begins from Jul 1, has discouraged enthusiasm. However, the government of Australia has also sought to incentivize current migrants to live outside the present congested big cities, by proposing 2 classes of 'Regional (Provisional) Visas' from Nov 2019. Full of Australia will be described as 'regional' without the urban areas of Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane, and Perth.

Cyrus Mistry told the latest regional visas will be engaging to those who are planning to participate in primary service sectors such as hospitality, agriculture, and tourism, aged-care, child-care, medical practitioners, machinery-maintenance, construction, and mining. It is incredible to provide sufficient incentives for metro-centric industries such as higher education and IT.

A statement from the Australian PM Scott Morrison office says that the new 'Regional (Provisional) Visas' holders can access permanent residence if they work and live in regional Australia for a tenure of 3 years. In other words, the PR will be possible after Nov 2022.

The release figures that 23,000 places (out of the entire 1.6 lakh cap) will be kept apart for the current regional visas categories. However, as per the immigration experts, this will drop the independent skilled visas number that allotted visa holders to work and live anywhere in Australia. An announcement from Australia home affairs department reveals that the current skilled regional provisional visas will be for dependent family members and skilled migrants.

New Proposed Regional Visas

One class, the 'Skilled Employer Sponsored (Provisional) Regional  Visa,' will be for those sponsored by an organization in the Australia regional area. The second one, known as the 'Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa,' will be for those chosen by territory or state government, or sponsored by qualified family members to work and live in the Australia regional area. These 02 types of visas will be given for duration of up to 05 years-the contemporary regional visa program allows a period of up to 04 years.

These visas will cover a broader range of occupations and preference processing will be possible. There will also be extra points for visa applicants who are sponsored to live in regional Australia.
