Australia Migration Program Planning and Delivery 2020-21 Update, 10 July 2020.

The Department of Home Affairs has provided further information on the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on the 2020-21 Migration Program Year.

The Department has acknowledged that migration continues to make substantial contributions to Australia’s economic prosperity, national wellbeing and social cohesion.

Now, the answers we’ve all been waiting for…

  • What is the Australian Government doing to ensure the visa system supports COVID-19 response and economic recovery?
    A carefully calibrated migration program is an important part of Australia’s economic recovery and will create jobs and bring investment to help Australia rebound from COVID-19.
    “Migration will be a key component of Australia’s economic recovery.”
  • When will the Australian Government announce the size and the composition for the 2020-21 Migration Program?
    In the COVID-19 recovery period, migration will be a key component of Australia’s economic recovery.
    “The existing 2019-20 Migration Program settings will continue to remain in place. This means the 2020-21 planning ceiling will be retained at 160,000 places, the level set for the 2019-20 Migration Program.”
  • Will States and Territories be given any nominations in the 2020-21 Migration Program, or are the State/Territory skilled nominated programs and Business Innovation and Investment Program closed indefinitely?
    The State and Territory nominated visa programs will play an important part in Australia’s economic recovery and continue to be a part of the Migration Program.
    “Nominations are made available to States and Territories in the following categories:

    • Skilled – Nominated (subclass 190)
    • Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) (subclass 491)
    • Business Innovation and Investment Program

    The Department of Home Affairs (Australian Immigration Department) plans to proceed with engagement with State and Territory governments regarding their nomination allocations for the 2020-21 Migration Program.”

  • What changes will be made to the Australia Migration Program in 2020-21?
    Until otherwise advised, the existing 2019-20 Australia Migration Program settings, including the program size and composition, will remain in place.
