Australian government has begun the review of its skilled migration occupation lists. The review will mainly focus on the occupation lists of the regional parts of the country. As per Ms. Michaelia Cash- the Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, department review of the skilled migration occupation list is being carried out to make certain that it is receptive to genuine skill needs and regional deviations across Australia.

Review of the Skilled Migration Occupation Lists

Speaking about the newly commenced review Cash Said, "As a Government, our role is to ensure that Australian employers can access workers with the skills needed to fill the jobs of today and tomorrow when they can't be met by the domestic workforce,".

The ongoing review will assist the government to recognize and fill serious shortages in the skilled migration category. This new assessment will benefit the regional parts of Australia, which are finding it difficult to combat the ongoing skill shortage.

Government Emphasizing on the Regional Migration

The government has been quite firm on its mission to address the skill shortage in the regional areas by enhancing the skilled migration to the regions. The people with work experience or study in regional Australia will have great advantage with the regional migration getting a boost in months to come. The government is wants the newcomers to keep away from the big cities, i.e. Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. This is the reason that the government has pledged around 20 million for priority processing of regional visas.

As per David Coleman, the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs, the Government's migration program is concentrating on making certain that the employers, particularly in regional Australia,can access workers to fill critical skills shortages.

Steps taken to boost Regional migration

Speaking about Regional Migration, Mr. Coleman further added, "We've allocated 23,000 regional migration places, introduced two new regional visas and signed Designated Area Migration Agreements around the country to attract migrants to the regions, help towns grow and to fill some of the 60,000 job vacancies in regional Australia,".

The New point system of Australia will also allocate some additional points to the applicants who have nomination or sponsorship from regional Australia. The applicants nominated by a State or Territory government or sponsored by a family member residing in regional Australia, will get 15 points with effect from November 16, 2019.
