    It appears to be a lengthy debate on grants and different visa categories for the fiscal year 2024–2025. These types of seminars are essential for applicants and authorities to comprehend the changing immigration laws and regulations. For those navigating the visa application process, these rounds offer insightful information and updates that are quite helpful.

    • this could also affect invitations and fast tracking of certain occupations we have not seen in the current settings .
    • An article was published saying they need 4500 tradies to kickstart the building of houses.

    2024–25 permanent Migration Program planning levels
    The 2024–25 permanent Migration Program has been set at a planning level of 185,000 with an approximate 70:30 split between the Skill and Family streams.
    Employer Sponsored visa category
    The Government has increased the planning level for Employer Sponsored from 36,825 visas in 2023–24 to 44,000 visas for the 2024–25 permanent Migration Program.
    This planning level builds on the expanded pathway to permanent residence introduced by the Government from November 2023. It will allow a greater proportion of temporary migrants to secure permanent residence in a timely manner through the Temporary Residence Transition Stream.
    State/Territory Nominated visa category
    The Government has increased the planning level for the State/Territory Nominated category to 33,000 visas, and the planning level for the Regional category to 33,000 visas for the 2024–25 Migration Program.
    Together these categories, which both contain visas nominated by state and territory governments, account for 36 per cent of the overall planning level and 50 per cent of the Skill stream.
    Increasing the planning levels for the State and Territory Nominated and Regional categories will allow jurisdictions to attract skilled migrants to meet their specific economic and labour force challenges. Increases to the Regional category planning level will also support key commitments in the Migration Strategy to support regional Australia, in addition to priority visa processing.
    Skilled Independent visa category
    In the 2024­–25 Migration Program, the Government has allocated 16,900 places for Skilled Independent visas. This is a decrease compared to the 2023–24 program allocation of 30,375 places, but still well above the COVID-era planning levels of 7,500 and 6,500 places in 2020–21 and 2021–22 respectively.
    Business Innovation and Investment Program (BIIP) visa category
    The Government has reduced the planning level for the BIIP from 1,900 visas in 2023–24 to 1,000 visas for the 2024–25 permanent Migration Program.
    As part of the Migration Strategy, the Government announced that it would not provide any new allocations for the BIIP while a new talent and innovation visa was considered. This new visa – to be called the National Innovation visa – will be available at the end of 2024.
    The BIIP will be closed permanently from July 2024 and new applications for the Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) (subclass 188) visa will no longer be able to be lodged. The Migration Review concluded that the BIIP is delivering poor economic outcomes for Australia. This has been supported by other studies, including work undertaken by the Treasury, Productivity Commission and the Grattan Institute.
    Subclass 188 BIIP visa applications that have been lodged will continue to be processed in line with Government priorities and the Migration Program planning levels. BIIP policy guidance will be tightened to ensure that all business migrants coming to Australia through this program have overall had a successful business career and will bring an economic benefit to Australia.
    Those who hold a subclass 188 visa and meet the relevant criteria for the grant of the Business Innovation and Investment (Permanent) (subclass 888) visa will still be able to continue on this pathway after July 2024.
    Reducing the planning level for BIIP will ensure the 2024–25 permanent Migration Program is focussed on highly-skilled individuals who will help to support a stronger, more robust, economy.
    Global Talent visa category
    The Government has slightly reduced the planning level for the Global Talent Visa Program to 4,000 visas for the 2024–25 Migration Program.
    This planning level aligns with the Government’s broader reforms around talent and innovation, and accounts for the last year of the Global Talent visa program as it transitions to new arrangements using the forthcoming National Innovation visa. Through the new visa, the Government will provide a permanent visa pathway for the most exceptional talented migrants – such as high performing entrepreneurs, major investors and global researchers. National Innovation visas granted in 2024-25 will be counted within the Global Talent visa Program.
    Home Affairs will manage the transition to the new National Innovation visa to ensure applicants, including existing applicants of the Global Talent visa, are supported in the application process. Existing Global Talent visa applicants will not be adversely affected by the transition. Visa applicants will be assessed against the eligibility criteria at the time of their application.
    Family stream
    The Government has maintained the size of the family stream. Family migration is an important element of Australia’s migration system. It allows Australian citizens and permanent residents to reunite with their family members and contribute to stronger social cohesion outcomes. The Australian Government recognises that immigrant parents can make valuable social contributions to their families and local communities.
    The Partner visa category is the largest component within the family stream. From 2022–23, the Partner program moved to a demand driven model which:
    recognises the social, economic and demographic benefits of family reunification and the Partner visa program in particular
    provides the flexibility to adjust the program in line with expected demand and help to reduce the Partner visa pipeline and processing times for many applicants.
    The Parent visa program has been maintained at 8,500 places while the Other Family (including Aged Dependent Relative, Remaining Relative and Carer programs) visa category has been maintained at 500 places.
    The Child visa program allows Australian residents to sponsor their dependent or adopted child or an orphaned relative. The Child program is demand-driven and remains set at 3,000 places for planning purposes only. The Australian Government prioritises the reunification of a child with an Australian parent or family sponsor. This ensures we uphold our international obligations to consider the best interest of a child as a primary consideration.
    2024–25 permanent Migration Program consultation
    The size and composition of the Migration Program is set each year alongside the Australian Government’s Budget process.
    To inform the planning levels and policy settings of the 2024–25 Migration Program, consultation occurred with:
    state and territory governments
    academia
    industry
    unions
    community organisations.
    When planning the Migration Program, the Australian Government considers the following:
    Public submissions
    Economic and labour force forecasts
    International research
    Demand for permanent visa programs
    Net overseas migration
    Economic and fiscal modelling.
    The Department invites public submissions as part of the planning process for future Migration Programs. Submissions to inform the 2024–25 Migration Program have now closed. For more information, see Australia's 2024–25 Migration Program.

    482 visa , lowering the work experience requirements to 1 and increasing the allocations for this subclass, may lead on what the immigration is planning for the next FY

    1) Planning Levels = 0 Backlog LODGED + incoming FY Allocations (In a perfect scenario- everything can be processed /granted within a FY )

    2) Planning Levels = Backlog LODGED from previous FY + current FY Allocations for nominations that can be accomodated ( In reality this is what is happening)

    There will always be BACKLOG that are carried forward into next FY , the smaller it is , the bigger allocations they can accommodate.

    **Ayon kay Copilot ,hindi sya straightforward haha **

    The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) in Australia decides the allocations for the Migration Program based on a variety of factors¹. Here's a brief overview of the process:

    1. Setting the Overall Planning Level: The DHA sets the overall planning level for the Migration Program each year. This is the total number of visas that the DHA aims to grant across all categories¹.

    2. Determining the Composition of the Migration Program: The Migration Program is divided into different streams, each with its own allocation. These streams include the Skill stream, the Family stream, and the Special Eligibility stream¹.

    3. Assessing Economic, Social, and Demographic Needs: The allocations for each stream and visa category are set based on Australia's economic, social, and demographic needs. For example, the Skill stream is designed to address skills shortages and attract people with specialist skillsets¹.

    4. Adjusting for Demand: Some visa categories within the streams are demand-driven and not subject to a ceiling. This means that the number of visas granted in these categories can vary based on the number of eligible applicants¹.

    5. Publishing the Allocations: The DHA publishes the nomination allocations for each jurisdiction for the upcoming Migration Program¹.

    It's important to note that the specific allocations can vary from year to year based on changes in Australia's needs and priorities¹. The DHA reviews and adjusts the allocations as necessary to ensure that the Migration Program continues to serve Australia's interests¹.

    Gigil ang Opposition sa migration hohoho. This is in relation to the recently passed Federal Budget... Somehow, at some point, it makes sense. But, in the long run, I personally dont think so. This country is heavily reliant on young migrants/workforce, along with the International Students, to contribute to the economy.

    E kung gingalingan nyo na lang sa pag-support sa mga land/property developers para makagawa sila ng new housing projects. :D

    Just means that processing times is directly correlated to the amount of allocations that the DoHA has allocated for the FY. They keep on promising that the processing times will get better. But always ends up reducing the planning levels to satiate their constituents. I would say that they will keep on having this debate as long as the election, inflation and housing crisis keeps on persisting. Because at the end of the day if the voters are dissatisfied with the current admin, they will vote for the other party, which would either mean that the migration changes will halt, or even a drastic measure will be implemented to “save face” with the voters.

    Either way, future seems bleak. A lot of countries are becoming more against immigration. I hope AU won’t become the next Canada.

    Migrating to a new country is a privilege. Countries allow or disallow it for plethora of reasons. It is what it is. That's why at the end of the day, sabi nga nila, dont put all your eggs in one basket. Always have back-up plans. Yes, with S.

    I remember back in 2022, I did put a deadline to my "obsession" with Australia. Kung walang invite before 2023, that's it. This was my way of getting over it. My way of telling myself that life goes on. That maybe there's another opportunity out there for me. Lo and behold, binigay rin naman sya, eventually. It took time. But yeah, we were ready and at peace kung hindi man sya dumating.

    Anyway, I'm still hoping everyone gets their migration journey fulfilled one way or another. Australia or not, know that there is a better place and life waiting. You just need to go through the process. :)

    DIY all the way. Avoid preachy, know-it-all, and unscrupulous agents AT ALL COSTS!

    SUBCLASS 190: Planning Levels and State Allocation

    Lets look at what happened this FY (2023-24)

    • Total Visa Backlog as at 31 July 2023: 48,643 (from an FOI)

    • We can assume around 2000 visa lodgements in July 2023 from invites issued in May and June 2023.

    • Therefore Total Visa Backlog as at 30 June 2023: 46, 643 (we entered FY2023-24 with this backlog)

    • Planning Level for FY2023-24 = 30,400

    • State Allocation for FY2023-24 = 10,300

    So, we entered this FY with a visa backlog of 46,643 (primary+secondary).

    The total number of grants planned for this FY were 30,400 (primary+secondary). So the backlog was almost 1.5 times compared to the Planning Level.

    Despite the above, States were allocated 10,300 new nomination places (primary applicants). This translates to:
    10,300 X 1.8 (approx. family size) = 18540 new visa lodgements

    🇦🇺Whats happening coming FY?

    Planning Level for FY2024-25: 33000

    Approx. Expected Backlog as at 30 June 2024:

    (46643 last backlog + 18540 new lodgements - 30,400 grants during FY as per planning level) = 34,782 (primary+secondary)

    🍏 Conclusion:

    FY2023-24, we entered FY with backlog (42643) = 1.5 X Planning Level (30,400) and still received 10,300 new state allocations.

    This FY looks much better.

    We are entering new FY with backlog (34,782) which is about the same as the FY2024-25 Planning Level (33,000).

    🚨What does this means for State Allocations ?

    One can expected it to be higher than this FY:

    can be upto 50% higher = 10,300 X 1.5 ~= 15K places (primary)

    Open to thoughts, opinions, discussions :)

    P.S. Government is trying to reduce migration intake overall, we have seen the projected levels for coming years. Regardless, we are entering coming FY in a much healthy state than we entered last FY.

    Question po: naka 482 visa po ako ngaun. Gusto ko sana kunin ung mag ina ko s pinas kaso diagnosed po ung anak ko ng asd. pg nag medical sya cguro mkikita un. May nababasa ako n hindi pwede kasi kelangan nya makapasa, may nababsa nmn ako n walang paki ang govt since hindi nmn sya under ng medicare. Meron po bang nka experience neto o meron b kyong kakilala na prehas na nadala ung anak dito kahit my asd ung bata? Salamat.
