Last week, India and Australia signed a partnership pact on migration and mobility. The agreement is aimed at opening up better opportunities for business people, students, and academic researchers.
Under this scheme, Indian graduates of Australian tertiary institutions holding a student visa are now eligible to apply for work in Australia. Also, they can get professional development for up to eight years without the requirement of having any visa sponsorship for it. The scheme is scheduled to start from the first of July this year.

The new scheme will also be including a new pilot program named Mobility Arrangement for Talented Early-professionals Scheme (MATES). MATES will come with an annual ceiling of 3000 places for four years.
A new mobility pathway will be offered by MATES for Indian graduates and early career professionals. However, they must have the skills and knowledge in their relevant field of study to live and work in Australia for up to two years.
The first list of eligible educational qualifications under this program includes ICT, mining, FinTech, engineering, artificial intelligence, renewable energy, AgriTech, etc. A joint working group will be appointed at a later date and will be adding more areas.
The government said that the points test to select skilled migrants will be modified so that it can spot the correct people with the required skill sets that the Australian economy will be needing going forward.
Also, the government promised that the high-skilled professionals’ visa process would be quicker and simpler. Additional steps will also be taken to keep the international students.
