Australia immigration quota will remain unchanged for 2018-19 confirmed the Australian Government in spite of recent calls to cut the yearly intake of immigrants. It has been affirmed by the Department of Home Affairs that the immigration program threshold of 190,000 remains unaltered. The annual immigration intakes are decided through the Budget process of Government of Australia.
The Spokesperson for the Home Affairs Department said that the immigration intake for 2017-18 was set at 190,000. This figure remains unaltered for 2018-19 added the Spokesperson, as quoted by the SBS.
The immigration intake of Australia was in the limelight in February. Ex-Prime Minister of Australia Tony Abbott had demanded crucial decrease to the immigrant intake of the nation.
On the other hand, the Home Affairs Minister of Australia discarded calls by Abbott to decrease the intake of immigrants. There were reports in the media that Dutton had discussed with Cabinet colleagues the prospects of decreasing immigration.
Nevertheless, the proposal was rejected by Scott Morrison the Treasurer and Malcolm Turnbull the Prime Minister. Australia has an annual intake of 190,000 PR immigrants. It has thus been confirmed that the annual threshold will remain at the current numbers for 2018-19. But there is no obligation for the government to fill the quota mandatorily.
Reports for annual immigration reveal that Australia has accepted nearly 190,000 PR immigrants annually from 2011.
