The new Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison is likely to go ahead with the New Australia Visas. These will be in the – Family and Skilled class visas that compel immigrants to stay in Regions. They would be permitted to shift to cities such as Melbourne or Sydney only after this.
The proposal was also under the consideration of the earlier government headed by Malcolm Turnbull. The data from the Department of Home Affairs had indicated that 1 out of 10 arriving via the current Regional visas shift to the cities within 1.5 years.
The recent Cabinet reshuffle by the new Prime Minister has also offered some indications. It is likely that the policy for a stay in Regions could be modified or integrated into a comprehensive population policy.
Alan Tudge the then Multiculturalism Minister of Australia was already working on the outline for the New Australia Visas. He has now been appointed as the Cities and Population Minister in the reshuffled Cabinet of Morrison.
The proposal for New Australia Visas compelling stay of 5 years in Regions for immigrants was due to be considered by the then Turnbull Cabinet. However, the leadership spill in the Liberal Party further delayed the proposal. The new Morrison Cabinet is yet to consider the proposal.
David Coleman is the new Immigration Minister of Australia. This removes immigration policy out of the portfolio of Peter Dutton the Home Minister. It could result is a shift in the areas of focus for immigration policy, as quoted by the SBS.
