Australia is one of the most popular countries where people from Southeast Asia, the UK, and South Africa, are considering migrating every year. A strong economy, well-paid jobs, modern lifestyle, high standard of living, and cultural diversity offer excellent opportunities to migrants for professional growth.
The free or subsidised healthcare, pleasant weather and cozy winters, being home to the world's most livable cities, and attractive PR pathways are some of the many benefits that have made Australia an attractive option for migrants.
Let's take a look at Australia's migration program.
The country's social, political, and economic requirements caused significant evolution in its migration program over the past years. Initially, the program began with a narrow target to achieve the required population goal, which eventually became more focused on meeting the labour market requirements of the Australian economy through skilled migration.
As per the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, skilled migration is essential for Australia's economic growth. The country doesn't have a sufficient labour force to meet the economic requirements, and without migration, Australia's labour force is expected to contract by 2050.
However, recent policy changes to the skilled migration category indicate the relationship between immigration and the country's labour market needs. It is now more focused on attracting migrants to Australia to meet specific economic requirements and fill the currently existing gaps in the labour market.
The reforms in the policy are made after identifying the country's need for ''demand-driven'' skilled migration, and not ''supply-driven''. These changes are made to meet the skill requirements in the economy and ensure that skilled migrants are employed to fulfil the particular industry's highest needs.
As a result of the reforms, the migration program is now more focused on prioritising sponsored skilled migrants with employment arranged before their arrival rather than independent skilled migrants without pre-arranged jobs in Australia. It is introduced for people with particular skills, considered to be of a critical shortage in the country, such as construction trade workers, medical professionals, engineers, and IT professionals.
Whether you apply for Subclass 189 visa (skilled independent), Subclass 190 visa (skilled nominated), or Subclass 491 visa (skilled regional—provisional), having prior work experience in the same field for a specific number of years is essential as the the latest point test is more focused on the importance of English, work experience, and high-level qualifications.
