The newly appointed Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison is expected to build new skilled and family visas that force migrants to spend years in regional areas before migrating to cities like Melbourne or Sydney.
The earlier Turnbull government was already planning to force migrants to stay in a particular area for limited time period but it seems Morrison government has more in the pipeline.
The previous government flagged new visas to “truss” migrants to the regions suggesting one in 10 who come under existing rural visas to move to a city within 18 months, the data was collected from the Home Affairs Department.
Well, the new minister hasn’t commented on this yet but the recent cabinet reshuffle suggests that policies may be revamped or broaden to integrate population policy.
The minister working on the immigration visas was then-multiculturalism minister Alan Tudge, who has now been appointed as minister of cities and population in the Morrison cabinet.
The previous government reported proposal of migrants locked for five years in a particular region before moving to cities and this proposal is yet to be taken into account by the new team.
Mr. Tudge office was not available to comment on the matter.
The new minister of Immigration for the current cabinet is David Coleman who is not in a position yet to comment on the policy changes.
The immigration responsibilities will be out from the Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton this could lead to new emphasis on immigration.
Business lobby Ai Group said it is hopeful to see “economic portfolio” in the immigration by new cabinet.
Australia has already number of visa programs that is centered across skilled migration to bring migrants to particular region. These visas are Skilled Regional (887) and the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (187).
However, the schemes invited few migrants despite acute population crunch and skill shortages in some regional areas. More than 90 per cent of permanent migrants choose to settle in the big cities as compared to small ones.
The employers in the small areas relatively cannot do much to sustain the migrants after the permanent residency has been granted.
