The Government of Australia has introduced its new visa scheme to lure in a large number of migrants in Australia’s rural areas.
As per the rules of the new Australian regional visa that launched in recent times, migrants to Australia need to spend a minimum of 3 years to live in Australia regional areas if they want to apply for Australian permanent residency.
Additionally, it also opens the door for overseas workers in a wide variety of occupations than the previous occupations for Australian regional visa. The jobs that include now are actors, real estate agents, call center managers and historians. These professions are now added to apply for Australia PR Visa.
The Australian Government is expected that this new visa scheme will enhance in the growth of population within regional regions and due to this, it will results in relieving of population pressures of major cities of Australia.
According to David Coleman, the minister for immigration, spoke to Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC),” Through requiring migrants for living and working in Australian regional areas for 3 years before the migrants hold permanent residency, we are motivating them to put down the roots and stay in these regional areas for a long period. This is also the need for our regional communities and smaller cities.”
As per data estimated by (ABS) Australian Bureau of Statistics in March, approx. 79% of population growth existed in capital cities in 2017-18.
Therefore, there are better and big chances to live and move to regional or remotes areas of Australia.
