Australian government has denied any possibility of the further cut in the total number of immigrants coming to Australia in a year. Rather, a committee busy in preparing a plan to encourage people to move to the regional parts of the country.

The Liberal party MP, Julian Leeser, told media that the quality of life of the Australia lies on taking up the challenge as to how we can evenly and efficiently, redistribute, reallocate and rearrange the population of Australia, which will raise to 25 percent in the next 15 years.

Australia's Migration Level and Population Distribution

Presently, Australia has cap of 1, 60,000 for annual migration and as per the government they don't have any plan to further reduce the same. What the government is actually concern about this directing the new immigrants to the regions, as population burden on big cities, i.e. Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth has increased a lot.

Speaking to media about this concern, Liberal MP Julian Leeser said,

"It is not about the total number. I think we have had a long debate about how many people we should have in this country, what we haven't had enough discussion on is where they should go."

As per him, committee wanted to design a new policy designs to plan and encourage new comers in Australia to move to regional parts of the country, which would unite with the government's new regional visa momentum.

He further added, "This is a great national goal, many governments have talked about the idea of people moving to regional Australia to address skills shortages in those areas,"

"I think hopefully we will break some new ground and hopefully come up with some new policy ideas that we can help put in place [and] will, in combination with the new visa arrangements that the government has announced, help encourage people to choose to live in regional Australia and to stay."

New Regional Visas and Changed point system

After Prime Minister Scott Morison took charge of the government, various positive changes have been announced in the immigration program of Australia. Few months back, Australia announced three new regional visas, which was perhaps, to address the issue of immigration to regional Australia. One of these regional visas, i.e. Subclass 491 will replace the popular Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa subclass 489 (GSM category visa) from November 16, 2019.

The government also announced to make changes in Australia's point based immigration system from the same date, i.e. November 16, 2019. The new changes will allocate some extra points to the GSM (General Skilled Migration) visa applicants, based on various factors, i.e. STEM education, spouse status, regional nomination, etc.
