Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Here is some good news for temporary migrant workers working in Australia. The government of the Pacific region-based country has announced that for the year 2024-25, the Permanent Migration Program will have 1,85,000 places.

When the Permanent Migration Program was started, it was intended to fulfil the skill shortages in the priority sectors as well as give importance to visa processing of skilled workers in regional Australia.

From 2024-25, the Australian government is going to introduce a visa ballot process for temporary migrant workers who are hailing from China, Vietnam and India.

For this year’s Permanent Migration Program, the 1,85,000 places have been decided to split in a 70:30 ratio between Skilled Stream and Family Stream.

How The Ratio is Working

  • Skilled Stream

In the Skilled Stream domain, 1,32,200 places or approximately 71% places of the program have been dedicated. In the program, special focus has been given to fulfilling the skill shortages in the labour market especially in regional Australia.

  • Family Stream

In the Family Stream domain, 52,500 places or approximately 28% of places of the program have been allocated. The Family Stream is dedicated to partner visas especially for Australians whose partners reside abroad. This visa scheme will ease Permanent Residency for the overseas partners.

  • Employer-Sponsored Visa Category

The Australian Government has set 44,000 visas for the 2024–25 permanent Migration Program under the Employer Sponsored Visa category.

  • Skilled Independent Visa Category

The Australian Government has allocated 16,900 places for the Skilled Independent Visa category in the 2024­–25 Migration Program.

  • Global Talent Visa Category

The Government has set the planning level for the Global Talent Visa Program to 4,000 visas for the 2024–25 Migration Program.

This is the overall news of the 2024-25 Permanent Migration Program in Australia.
