The government of Australia is focusing on improving the population growth of other regional areas of Australia by boosting immigration growth in these areas. The government wants to shift focus from Melbourne and Sydney to other equally important areas of Australia. A national policy is soon to be announced by the Federal Ministry of Australia for removing congestion from major cities.
The Australian government is currently slowing down the immigration intake of temporary workers in Melbourne and Sydney and directing the migrants to settle in the regional areas, as told by News.com. The new population program will be announced well before Australia’s election in May next year, said Population Minister Alan Tudge.
In previous year, 160,000 migrants came to Australia and most of them settled in Melbourne, Sydney and Southeast Queensland.
So, the Australian Government is on a look out to contemplate the immigration rush in the most popular cities of Australia. The planning to introduce fast-track method for applications to settle in regional areas and also imposing additional restrictions on where certain visa holders may live and work, said the Population Minister.
Australia Skilled Migration is a pathway towards permanent residency of Australia that allows migrants to settle and work anywhere in Australia.
The government says that implementing restrictions on state to state basis would be easy as compared to restrictions imposed on the people settled in the major cities to move to regional towns. There will be no special tax zones as per the population plan, added Mr. Tudge.
