Highlights of Australia immigration

  • There are plans in the making to raise the annual Australia immigration cap to higher levels from 160,000.
  • There are 480,100 job vacancies in Australia as of May 2022.
  • The Australian government is planning to bring more foreign workers, train more local workers, and stop foreign workers’ exploitation.
  • Major job vacancies and skill requirements are seen in fields like IT and healthcare.

Australia has plans to increase the number of skilled migrants who migrate to Australia. The plan is to raise the annual immigration cap from 160,000 to a higher count so that the scarcity of skilled workers in various industries is solved.

The requirement for higher immigrant intake is much more glaring considering the fact that many key industries are facing huge labor shortages. These industries include IT and healthcare.
