Update to the October Budget for 2022-23’s Migration Program
At the national Jobs and Skills Summit in 2022, the Australian government said that the permanent migration program’s planning level would rise to 195,000 spots for 2022–203. After the government presents its October Budget for 2022–23, the permanent migration program’s detailed composition will be made public.
2022–23 Migration Plan for the March 2022–23 Budget
The former administration declared that the Migration Program for 2022–2023 will have a planning level of 160,000 places and the following composition:
1. Skill (109,900 spots) – this stream is designed to fill skill shortages in the labour market and enhance the economy’s productive capacity, including those in regional Australia.
2. Family (50,000 spots) – this stream is predominantly made up of Partner visas, helping Australians to reunite with members of family from overseas and offer them pathways to citizenship.
- To encourage family reunions, partner visas will be granted on demand-driven basis between 2022 and 2023. This will hasten the processing of countless Partner visa applications.
- The number of Partner visas forecasted for 2022–2023 is 40,500. It should be noted that the estimate mentioned above has no cap.
- 3000 child visas are anticipated for 2022–2023 for planning purposes; however, keep in mind that this category is demand-driven and uncapped.
3. Special Eligibility (100 spots) – This stream deals with visas for people in unique situations, such as Australian permanent residents returning home after travelling abroad.
Program Size And Composition for the March Budget for 2022–2023
The scope and composition of the Migration Program are established annually in conjunction with the Australian government’s budgetary process.
To help structure the planning levels and policy settings of the 2022–23 Migration Program for the 2022–23 March Budget, the Department of Home Affairs (the Department) held extensive consultations with the territory and state governments, experts from business and academia, union representatives, and community organisations between November 2021 and December 2021.
The Department also asked for public feedback as part of the planning for the 2022–23 Migration Program for the March Budget. This process is now complete.
Public feedback, economic and labour force projections, global research, net migration abroad, and financial and budgetary modelling are all considered while planning the programme.
