Australia To Fix Its Migration System For Workers And Students

Clare O’Neil, the Minister of Home Affairs, claimed while speaking at a workforce summit that the authorities in Australia are examining the country’s broken immigration system.

She believes that Australia needs to transition out of the permanently temporary migration. She further said that the authorities need to take measures to allow skilled workers to permanently come to Australia without any difficulty.

In addition to this, the Minister of Home Affairs regarded Australia’s migration system as unstrategic, inefficient, and useless for businesses, migrants, and the local population.

For the last two decades, the Net skilled permanent migration to Australia has remained at 30000 annually.

On the other hand, temporary visa holders in Australia have increased from 1 million to 1.9 million.

The Minister claims that Australia needs structural reform to rebalance every program, which could take years. Till then, Australia is likely to be an unappealing destination for migrants.

Those with low-skill levels find it easier to come to Australia temporarily, but a high-skill, permanent migrant might be hesitant.

Moreover, the government considers international students forced to exit Australia after graduating from local universities as an untapped market.

Nearly 50% of graduates who stay back have to work jobs for which they are overqualified.

Shimla Singhsays:

I am a 52 yr old female , Singapore citizen. I have transferable administrative & customer service skills and would not be allowed skilled migration. My sister is an Australian citizen, living in Victoria and I want to be there permanently with and for her. We are both singles. I know I can still contribute to the workforce. I can learn and be trained as a low skill employee as a child care worker. Is that possible for me under an Exception of Labour Agreement?
