As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, over 500,000 temporary visa holders left Australia resulting in major skill shortage and highest job vacancies in the last 10 years. Australia’s economic recovery will be severely hampered in absence of skilled resources and therefore in March 2021, The Joint Standing Committee on Migration inquired into and made recommendations on Australia’s skilled migration program.

Here are 7 key highlights from the recommendations made by the committee.

  • Department of Home Affairs be required to provide greater transparency on where employer sponsored visa applications are in the queue.



  • Department of Home Affairs conduct an urgent review of the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List, in consultation with relevant stakeholders, with a view to expanding the number of occupations to better reflect the urgent skills shortages in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic recovery. 

  • The Department should give particular consideration to civil engineers, electrical engineers, motor mechanics, cooks, carpenters, electricians and other roles in the hospitality, health, trades, agriculture and manufacturing sectors. 

  • The Government reserve places on flights and in quarantine for skilled migrants. 

  • The Department of Home Affairs improve visa processing times for employer-sponsored visas 

  • The Department of Home Affairs expedite the processing times for skilled visa holders who have remained onshore in relevant employment seeking a subsequent skilled visa or permanent residency visa.



  • All employer sponsored visa holders be given a clearer pathway to permanency.


These recommendations will not only increase your chances of migrating to Australia but will also ensure a long term association with the country.

So don’t waste any time on thinking and planning and quickly take this assessment to start your migration journey.
