Reforms to get migration working for the Nation

Released by the Australian Government today, the Migration Strategy sets out significant reforms to Australia’s migration system to meet the future needs of the nation and deliver for Australia—its people, businesses, governments and migrants.


Migrants continue to be an essential part of Australia’s economic and social fabric. Today, more than half of all Australians were born overseas or have a parent born overseas.


The Migration Strategy outlines five core objectives for Australia’s migration system. To achieve these objectives, the Government will deliver eight key actions, supported by more than 25 new policy commitments and existing commitments already made by Government.


The reforms focus on:


  • targeted skilled migration and new streamlined pathways for top global talent

  • higher standards for international students and education providers to drive quality in international education

  • visa settings to tackle worker exploitation and protect wages and conditions

  • support for regional Australia to get fast access to skilled workers

  • a new approach to migration planning to help return migration back to pre-pandemic levels and to get the right skills in the right places.

The Strategy and Action Plan are now available at Migration Strategy.
