How to Migrate to Australia in 2022-23?


Australia’s permanent migration program has been carefully developed to accomplish a range of economic and social results that are in line with the country’s requirements.

The permanent program of migration service in Australia is scheduled every year, with program settings announced in the Federal Budget.

Every year, the Department of Home Affairs (the Department) seeks input from States and Territories, Government agencies, industry, academia, and the general public to help determine the size and content of the Migration Program.

What is the Migration Program for Australia in 2022-23?

The controversy around Covid 19 caused problems in Australia, as it did in much of the world. As a result, Australia’s Migration Program implements a level of planning to stimulate the economy.

This amounts to 160,000 places planned for the 2022-23 Migration Program, divided into the following categories:

  • Skilled Stream

The Migration Program’s Skill Stream is tailored to fulfill Australia’s economic, demographic, and labor market needs. It allows migrants with greater than average labor force participation and productivity, as well as specialized talents in high demand on the labor market, to enter.

Skilled migrants aid the economy by bringing fresh knowledge and skills to Australia, assisting firms in adopting new technologies, and expanding access to global markets.

Regional Australia’s specific skilled visas help to fill manpower needs in specific areas. The Skill stream focused on visa categories to help Australia’s economy recover from COVID-19 in the last two program years (2020-21 and 2021-22), with priority given to visa cohorts that drive economic growth and investment, such as Business Innovation and Investment Program, Global Talent, and Employer Sponsored applicants.

  • Streaming for families

The Migration service in Australia program’s Family stream allows Australian citizens and permanent residents to reunite with close relatives. The Family Stream usually makes up roughly a third of the Migration Program, which has been the case since the early 2000s. 

The government temporarily boosted the number of spots available for Family visa categories to 77,300 for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 program years (almost half of the Migration Program).

The Partner visa category makes up by far the most of the Family stream, accounting for over 80% of the program1. More Partner visa spots were available in 2020-21 than in any previous program year in at least 25 years. 

Permanent Parent visas and Other Family visas are also available in the Family Stream. The Child Visa Program, on the other hand, is separate from the Migration Program and is not subject to the Program’s ceiling.

  • Special Eligibility Stream

Special situations, such as a permanent resident returning after a long absence, are covered by this visa.

  • Submitting a proposal

Please note that while we do not intend to publish submissions, we may share de-identified content with other parties for debate, such as state and territory governments or Commonwealth agencies. 

If you do not want your submission shared outside of the Department of Home Affairs, please specify so in your submission.


The immigration system in Australia is unique and continuously changing, with each state revising its skilled worker requirements the immigration system regularly.

The Australian Government tries to balance economic, social, and demographic objectives and priorities when developing Australia’s permanent migration program. The quality and strength of the evidence available determine the appropriate balance. We’re looking for public input to help us prepare migration service Australia’s program for 2022-23.
