Australia immigration making a comeback; Govt. all for high migrant intake

By  Editor
Updated October 27 2023

It’s not an easy task to bring the economy and labor market back to pre-COVID levels. But Australia has taken a determined step in that direction and declared its plans for bringing its migration intake back to pre-pandemic levels. Australia immigration is all set to rebound and the world is watching.

Australia has recently reopened its borders to international students and skilled workers. But, the need for workers to fill jobs in Australia has touched alarming rates! Despite employers offering unprecedented hikes in pays, there’s a high need for skilled workers which can only be solved through migration.

It’s encouraging to see that as per official data, Australia’s unemployment rate has come down to 4.6% in November 2021. This was following the lifting of lockdowns in Victoria, New South Wales, and the Australian Capital Territory.

Any improvement in the economic and employment scene in Australia can be attributed to the lifting of lockdowns and gradual removal of restrictions at Australia’s international borders. But those have raised the demand for jobs as well. Industries like tourism, hospitality, trades, and healthcare now need a large number of workers for lack of staff.

To this effect, the Australian government has announced its plans to take in 160,000 migrants annually. The aim is obviously to plug the gap between labor market demand and the availability of skilled workers.

The year 2020 has been quite punishing for the Australian job scene with more migrants leaving jobs than those joining it, thanks to the COVID-19. Even now, as the high rate of vaccination has caused a sharp turn in migration flow, the emergence of COVID-19 variants is slowing down the border reopening process.

But then, the brighter side of an improving situation as far as immigration is concerned is not to be ignored. There’s a lot to expect from 2022.
