DHA pushes for “user-pays” privatized Australia immigration system

The Department of Home Affairs has taken the next step for the privatized Australia immigration system by publishing a public briefing for potential business partners. The briefing has been published by Andrew Kefford Department of Home Affairs First Assistant Secretary.

The DHA is as of now pushing for a “user-pays” model for the immigration system. This has been termed by Kefford as the most crucial reform to the Australia immigration system in the last 3 decades.

The briefing further elaborates that DHA is seeking collaboration to design, implement, and manage the Australia Visa business. It is keen to identify commercial services that are a valuable addition and help in attracting people to the nation, as quoted by the Australian.

The privatization of Australia immigration system is not limited to digitization. But it is more significant for establishing a novel commercial model. This must create fresh opportunities for providers, clients, and the government added Kefford.

As of now, 1/4th of all the visa filings are still paper-based. On the other hand, almost 50% of all visa petitions are decided manually. This manual processing costs the government around several 100 million dollars annually. Owing to this, many stakeholders are considering that the changes are aimed at making the visa business commercially lucrative.

All the Australia visa applications will shift to online space if the proposed global digital platform by the government is fruitful.
