The planned level for the permanent migration programme for 2023–24 will be set at 190,000 slots, according to an announcement from the Australian government.
The goal of the 2023–24 Migration Programme is to solve ongoing and upcoming skill shortages and promote the shift to a net-zero emissions economy by luring in highly specialised talent that is hard to recruit or cultivate in Australia.
137,100 positions are available in the skill stream, which is intended to increase the economy's capacity for production and address skill shortages in the labour market, particularly in regional Australia.
Family stream (52,500 places): This stream mostly consists of Partner visas, allowing Australians to reunite with distant relatives and provide them access to citizenship.
400 slots are available in the Special Eligibility stream, which includes visas for people in unique situations, such as Australian permanent residents who are returning home after time spent abroad.
