  • No changes to planning levels or composition for skill stream

    Australia’s Migration Program is set annually as part of the federal Budget process and considers the country’s changing economic and health conditions, labour and social cohesion needs.

    The next financial year’s Migration Program will have an overall planning level of 160,000 places, including 79,600 places for the skill stream and 77,300 places for the family stream.

    Spokesperson from the Department of Home Affairs said that in the 2021-22 Migration Program, the Business Innovation and Investment Program planning level remains at 13,500, the Global Talent Visa Program at 15,000 and the Employer Sponsored visa remains at 22,000.

    The spokesperson clarified that the immigration minister had recently reallocated places in some skilled visa categories in response to health, border and economic conditions arising from the pandemic. But that decision was applicable to the current program only and would have no bearing on the planning levels for the next financial year.

    While the skill stream remains at 79,600, the Minister has reallocated places in some skilled visa categories. This applies to the 2020-21 Migration Program year only – spokesperson

    The department maintains that in 2021-22, the skill stream will continue to focus on visa categories that will help Australia’s economy rebound after COVID-19, with priority given to visa cohorts that drive economic growth, job creation and investment into Australia.

    "There will be continued flexibility within the Skill stream to respond to uncertain health, border and economic conditions arising from COVID-19," the spokesperson added.
