Skill stream migration

With restoration to the pre-pandemic makeup of around two-thirds/one-third across the Skill and Family streams, the Morrison Government's Migration Program will put a strong emphasis on skilled migration.

At 109,900, the Skill stream will have surpassed 2021–22 planning levels by more than 30,000 positions.

Employer-sponsored (30,000 seats), Skilled Independent (16,652 places), and State and Territory Nominated (20,000 places) categories within the Skill stream have all seen increases from 2021–22 planning levels.

To promote growth in regional Australia, the number of regional visas will more than triple to 25,000 slots. The categories for Business Innovation and Investment (9,500 spots), Global Talent (8,448 spots), and Distinguished Talent (300 spots) will ensure that Australia continues to be a top choice for the world's most talented people and businesspeople.

Family Stream Migration

The Family Stream will offer roughly 50,000 spots as part of the government's migration initiative to facilitate family reunions.

According to estimates, the categories for partner and child visas will issue 40,500 and 3,000 visas each, respectively (delivery of partner and child visas will be contingent upon demand and requirements for visa processing); 6,000 spots will be made available for parent visas and 500 spots will be made available for other family visas.

Partner visa processing will switch to a demand-driven paradigm in 2022–2023.

Granting Partner visas based on demand will give the flexibility to meet the demand for Partner visas in a specific program year, helping to reduce possible expansion in the Partner visa pipeline while maintaining immigration integrity.

The Special Eligibility category will receive 100 slots. This stream deals with visas for people in unique situations, such as Australian permanent residents who are returning home after traveling abroad.

Working Holiday Makers

The Government is aware of the value of the tourist industry to Australia's overall economic health. Working Holiday Maker (WHM) agreements exist between Australia and 45 nations, with 26 of those partners operating under annual "cap" agreements.

The Morrison Government has announced a one-time cap increase to the number of slots available to WHMs from nations with which Australia has a Work and Holiday (subclass 462) visa arrangement in order to promote Australia's economic future and the sustained expansion of the tourist sector.

As a result, potential backpackers will be able to apply for an additional 11,000 WHM visas. Over the following three years, it is anticipated that this measure will raise the underlying cash balance by $45 million.

Working Holiday Maker (WHM) (subclasses 417 and 462) visa holders who arrive in Australia may ask for a reimbursement of the visa application fee between 19 January 2022 and 19 April 2022 in an effort to promote the entry of WHMs to Australia (VAC). For holders of Student (subclass 500) visas who come between January 19 and March 19, 2022, this is an addition to visa refunds.

Humanitarian program

To ensure that Australia continues to be one of the world's most generous humanitarian resettlement countries and can react swiftly to humanitarian emergencies abroad, the 2022–23 Humanitarian Program will be maintained at the existing limit of 13,750 seats and over the forward estimates.

This would make it possible for Australia to continue supporting, as recently announced, the transfer of Ukrainians onto a temporary humanitarian (subclass 786) visa and to collaborate with international partners to address global humanitarian concerns, especially those of Myanmar.

An additional 16,500 spots will be made available for Afghan citizens under the Humanitarian program and will be distributed equally over the following four years as a token of our continued dedication after Australia's 20 years of involvement in Afghanistan. With this and other declarations, there will be 31,500 spots available for Afghans under Australia's humanitarian and immigration programs throughout the course of the following four program years.

A Youth Transition Support (YTS) services program will get an additional $9.2 million in funding from the 2022–23 Budget to help migrant and refugee youngsters enter a competitive job market and reach their full potential. This one-year extension expands on the work already done to help young migrants achieve better outcomes in terms of their education, employment, and social integration.
