Australia’s 2014-15 Migration Programme
The Australian Government recently announced the 2014-15 migration programme which sees a total of 190 000 places available.
These are the planned levels unveiled as part of the budget:
- 128 550 places for skilled migrants, including employer sponsored, general skilled and business migrants
- 60 885 places for family migrants sponsored by family members in Australia
- 565 places for special eligibility migrants, who include former permanent residents who have maintained close business, cultural or personal ties with Australia.
The migration programme is set by government annually and lists the planned levels for permanent migration to Australia. It is managed separately to the humanitarian programme.
