Australian Immigration Law Update If you are interested in moving to Australia then NOW is the time to make your immigration application. This is because Australia has changed laws to make immigration easier for skilled workers, students and family members.
Work in Australia Most importantly, the number of visas on offer to skilled workers will soon increase to 185,000 places per year. This is the first time Australia has increased migration levels since 2008.
Australia will also introduce the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) to make it faster and easier for workers to move to Australia. The scheme will create 16,000 places for workers to target specific skills shortages in regional areas. Global Visas can help you determine if your skills and experience make you eligible for the scheme.
Family Visas Visas for people with family members in Australia will also increase to 58,000 places per year. In announcing the changes, Australian Immigration Minister Chris Bowen said it was "socially important" that migrant families can stay together.
Student Visas In April, the Australian Government changes the rules to make it simpler for students to move to Australia. Successfully applying for an Australian student visa has never been easier thanks to simpler eligibility criteria relating to English language, evidence of funds and previous education.
More changes ahead With a booming economy and low unemployment, Australia has plenty of opportunities for workers and families to immigrate. Migrants make important contributions to the Australian economy, and the government is doing everything they can to make immigration easier.
