Is it a time to shift in regional areas of Australia for skilled migration?
Eighty-seven percent of the migrants who came to Australia last year settled in Melbourne and Sydney
Australian population has reached 25 million and thus, government is encouraging upcoming migrants to live and work outside Sydney and Melbourne.
The Australian government is planning to introduce certain policies to encourage more skilled and qualified workers to settle in the regional areas of Australia.

In the previous year, of the 111,000 new skilled migrants arrived in Australia- the largest number of migrants settles in the two biggest cities- Sydney and Melbourne. The over population in these cities has badly affected their infrastructure and housing.
There is more need to distribute the population evenly to avoid congestion pressures in Melbourne and Sydney. These cities are over population and on the other hand there are parts of Australia that are in desperate need of skilled people. For example, South Australia would like to invite additional 15,000 migrants a year. Also, Western Australia’s newspaper ‘The Warrnambol Standard’ recently had their front-page headline: ‘Wanted-1,000 workers.’
Now is the high time to shift focus from mainstream cities to regional areas.
The regional areas want the best and brightest migrants from around the world. The Australian government is focusing to push migrants in the areas that have demand for particular skills. Most probably, the government will enter into boutique agreement with business leaders to look out for the regional areas that has labour requirement for the particular occupation. They will work on limiting the skill shortage in the required regional areas.

The last year immigration intake was limited to 163,000 –the lowest figure in a decade. The increase in population is a result of:
