1. Trends of various new immigrants to Australia in the 20-21 fiscal year
The Immigration Bureau has released the signing results of various immigration projects in the last 20-21 fiscal years. A total of more than 60 pages of reports are very detailed. In the future, they will be classified and combined and data analysis will be shared with you.
190 state guarantee
In the whole fiscal year, 14,268 were signed and 15,904 were newly submitted. As of June 30, 2021, the backlog of applications was 14,588. Compared with the number of new submissions and the number of signings, there has been a decline in FY19-20, and the backlog of 190 is basically maintained. The highest number of signed occupations is 2544 registered nurses, with 1537; the second is ICT2613 with 1,141; the third is accounting with 863; the fourth is ICT2611 with 416. Next, the top ten are other engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, and 2332 medical categories, all of which are about 300. Social workers and chefs rank ninth and tenth.
491 State guarantee in remote areas
The quota for remote areas is mainly at 491,494 and only accounts for a small part. In the 491 category, 10,675 were signed in a single fiscal year, and 16,364 were newly submitted. As of June 30, 2021, there were 18,070 applications. Obviously the demand for 491 (invited) has come up, but the visa processing speed is far behind. . The backlog of 491 applications has exceeded 190 and 189. Registered nurses are the most signed occupations, with 1311 far exceeding other occupations. Accounting ranks second with only 470, and 2613/Mechanical Engineering/Civil Engineering is between 200-300.
189 Independent Skilled Immigration
Because of the sharp decrease in the number of invitations, the number of new visas submitted in 189 was much lower than that of 190 and 491. There were only 8,529 in the last fiscal year (both about 35,000 in fiscal year 17/18 and 18/19), and the approval rate was 97.2 %, the backlog is still quite large, there are 12240.
In the whole fiscal year, 23,503 contracts were signed and 24,997 were newly submitted. When the rejection rate is severely cracked down, the next period will drop by 7 times. The most popular occupations under employer guarantees are 2613/registered nurse/accountant/2611/2421/civil engineering and chefs and cooks.
GTI Global Talent Project
GTI wasted a lot of quotas last fiscal year, and most of the applicants were stuck in the stage of waiting for invitation. The fields of digital technology, health, energy and finance accounted for nearly 90% of the invitations according to the entire GTI quota. On the other hand, the probability of GTI not being invited has increased from 41.6% to 57.2%, and has reached 64.8% in the past six months. Combined with the risk of refusal after being invited.
The number of investment immigration quotas in the last fiscal year has not been issued, and investment immigration has dropped from nearly 1/3 of the peak period of refusal and voluntary cancellation to the current 20%. This also shows that the Australian economy under the epidemic does need more overseas entrepreneurs. To rebuild.
Number of quotas + preferential treatment for trial, 72,376 spouse immigration approvals (almost double the 37,118 in the previous fiscal year), no category is more "fascinating" than spouse immigration. This kind of scenery is currently seen and continues to this fiscal year. Recently, 189/190/491 have all slowed down.
The number of parent immigration approvals followed the quota. 4,500 were issued. The backlog is really insignificant. The backlog (including queuing and paying) increased from 108,659 to 114,359, an increase of 5700, an increase of 5.3%
2. The Prime Minister and the Minister: It is expected that the country can be opened before Christmas as scheduled
Australian Minister of Tourism and Trade Dan Tehan said this week that Australia's opening up of its borders is proceeding as expected. According to the current rate of vaccination, there is a high probability that Australia's borders can be opened before Christmas this year at the latest.
The first batch of openings should mainly be aimed at PRs or citizens leaving the country in Australia. The Minister stated that once the full vaccination rate reaches 80% and the border is opened, there will be no restrictions on the destinations of exit. After returning to Australia, there is a high probability that they can be isolated at home (the government has been experimenting gradually). Of course, the prerequisite is that all 2 doses of vaccines are inoculated.
The Prime Minister also said the next day that the number of people vaccinated in Australia is rising and that they are moving step by step towards the national reopening plan. It is expected that border restrictions can be relaxed as planned. Allowing fully vaccinated Australians to travel abroad is what the government wants to promote, and it also looks forward to welcoming international students and skilled migrants when the border is relaxed.
There have been more and more news about the gradual opening of national borders this month, and the state and federal governments have also taken concrete actions and made preparations. Some industries have also begun to call for arrangements for skilled immigration as soon as possible to help solve the labor shortage:
For example, in order to cope with the peak of confirmed diagnoses and hospitalizations that may occur after unblocking, the NSW Health Department is discussing with the federal government that nursing staff with certified overseas nurse qualifications can enter the country faster and easier to provide assistance.
The elderly care industry also urges the government to use various methods to help. With the lack of overseas immigrants, there are fewer and fewer candidates to choose from. The government should formulate strategies and policies as soon as possible to restart (overseas) immigration.
3. University presidents: The vaccine recognition issue must be resolved as soon as possible to allow Chinese students and other TR to enter the country
In the pilot program for the first batch of students returning to Australia in NSW announced this Friday, mainland Chinese students were excluded because of the vaccination problem. The first batch is just a landmark role, but afterwards, the state or the next phase of the pilot will still encounter the problem of "the vaccine of Kexinghe Sinopharm is not recognized by the TGA".
The principals of many prestigious schools in NSW subsequently urged the federal government to resolve the issue of vaccine recognition as soon as possible, which should be a high priority. “TGA and ATAGI must act quickly to provide the government with isolation programs for people with unapproved vaccines, including those from How people from mainland China and Russia enter Australia under certain quarantine arrangements is not only a problem for international students, but also for other short-term or long-term entry visas. If you want to open the border, you need an extensive vaccination-related strategy. "
