  4. Registered Nurses
  5. ICT (Information and Communications Technology) Business and Systems Analysts

Migration Cap to Prioritize Skilled Workers

Australia’s permanent migration program for 2022-23 is capped at 160,000 places.

While the places for 2021-22 – also capped at 160,000 – were split almost evenly between skilled and family migrants, workers will be prioritized in the government’s latest plan.

Next year, more than two-thirds of the migrants expected to arrive in Australia will be from seven of the various skilled visas available.

But there are calls by both business lobby groups and unions to lift the migration cap to 200,000 across the next two years to further alleviate shortfalls in many workplaces.

The country’s unemployment rate sits at a historic 3.4 percent low. There are 1.8 million people in Australia who are looking for work but couldn’t because they are caring for their children.
