Outcomes of the 2019 – 2020 Migration Program

Table of Contents

On September 16th, the Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs, The Hon Alan Tudge MP, released published outcomes from the 2019-2020 Migration Program.

For the given period, this release illustrated a total permanent migration intake of 140,366.

Seventy percent of these visas (95,843 in total) were granted through the skilled stream, including 4,109 places granted under the highly-skilled Global Talent – Independent Program (which was launched in November 2019) whilst, from 25,000 regional visa places allocated, 23,372 were granted; a figure which compared favourably with the 18,308 granted during the previous 2018-2019 period and represents an increase of 27 percent.

Under the Family Program, 37,118 Partner visas were included in the total number of 41,961 visas granted and of an additional 13,171 visas granted in the Humanitarian Program, 4,765 (45 percent) were referred for settlement in regional areas.

Given the current circumstances, it is understandable that, over the 2019-2020 period, two-thirds of permanent visas were granted to individuals already in Australia, now transitioning from temporary visas to permanent residency./

The size and composition of the 2020-2021 Migration and Humanitarian Programs remain under consideration, contingent upon the developing COVID-19 situation. They will be announced as part of the Federal Budget process, due to be handed down on October 6th.
