Expected Reforms To The Australian Migration System

It is safe to say the Australian migration system is about to go through major changes in the next 3 to 6 months following the Minister of Home Affairs, Clare O’Neil’s speech at the National Press Conference and the Federal Budget.



Some of the changes are as follows;

  • Skilled visa programs are being streamlined and simplified by creating a three-tiered processing system, named highly skilled, mainstream, and essential workers.
  • Developing more pathways for Student Visa and Employer sponsored visa holders interested in obtaining permanent residency.
  • Minimum salary requirements for Employer-Sponsored visa applicants are expected to be increased.
  • Rules for student visa holders will be made stricter to ensure students are studying effectively and supporting Australia’s need for skilled workers.

The following changes will become effective from 1 July 2023.

  • Rise in Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold from $53,900 to $70,000
  • International students will be allowed to work up to 48 hours a fortnight
  • Overseas students employed in the elderly care sector will not be required to follow the cap of working up to 48 hours a fortnight until 31 December 2023.

New Zealand Citizens Will Be Qualified For Citizenship Directly

Some Temporary Graduate subclass 485 visa holders will be allowed to seek an extension for 2 extra years.

However, visa application fees charged by the Department and regular CPI increase will be raised by 6%. Plus, there would be an additional 15% for specific visitor and temporary visa subclasses, along with 40% for business innovation and investment visas.

Various enforcement and compliance activities will be carried out to keep the integrity of the Australian migration system intact.
