The Australian Government recently announced that it would increase its permanent Immigration quota. This works as great news for those looking for a job in Australia. There will be an increase in its permanent immigration intake from 35,000 to 195,000 in 2022-23.
The announcement comes as a solution to the shortage of skilled labour in the country. There are plans to establish a panel to rebuild its immigration program in the national interest.
Clare O’Neil, Australia’s Home Affairs Minister made the announcement stating the increase for the year ending June 30, 2023, during a two-day summit of 140 representatives of governments, trade unions, businesses and industry to address skills shortages worsened by the pandemic.
Clare also mentioned that nurses have been working double shifts for the past 2 years. As the flights were cancelled due to the pandemic, Australia saw a lack of ground staff.
“Our focus is always Australian jobs first, and that’s why so much of the summit has focused on training and on the participation of women and other marginalized groups,” Clare said.
The Prime Minister of Australia announced that 180,000 free places would be offered in vocational education schools by next year at the cost of 1.1 billion Australian dollars to reduce the nation’s skills shortage.
