The total number above does not include Australia’s proposed intake of 13,750 permanent residence visas for its Refugee and Humanitarian Program, which is separate to the Migration Program above.
The 2020-2021 Migration Program intends to:
- Improve the productive capacity of the economy and fill skill shortages in the labour market, including those in regional Australia under the skill stream;
- Enable Australians to reunite with family members from overseas, and provide them with pathways to citizenship where they may be able to apply under the family stream;
- Consider permanent residents returning to Australia after a period away under the special eligibility stream; and
- Provide at least 3,000 places for eligible children to apply for visas to remain in Australia.
