Australia is expected to leave more people this fiscal year, but the federal government still plans to issue a 160000 permanent residence visa quota. However, some immigration experts say the new crown has made the task of attracting overseas workers almost impossible.

Arona (Jeanne Arona) came to Sydney six years ago from the Philippines to study nursing, and won the Sydney University of Science and Technology (University of Technology Sydney) academic degree in 2016. Despite Australia's urgent need to register nurse (Registered Nurse), Arona ,25, is not easy to find a job.

"It's hard to get in. They will consider your visa, so the opportunities for overseas students are limited. "she said.

Arona eventually entered the Uniting the Marion live a retired life Hospital, currently holds a 4-year guarantee visa and hopes to stay in Australia permanently.


Skills priority

The Federal government has recognized the registration nurse as one of Australia's unfilled occupations, giving overseas applicants priority to speed up the processing of temporary visas and travel exemptions.

The registered nurse is one of the 17 occupations listed (Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List) as priority immigrant skilled occupations in September. other occupations on the list include chief executive officer or managing director, construction project manager, mechanical engineer, doctor, psychiatrist and IT professional, etc.

An expanded list is welcomed by some in the business community, eager to see economic rebound after the epidemic.

"This must be a skill-led recovery ," said CEO Vinox (Innes Willox) of the Australian industrial group. Clearly, millions of people around the world have the skills we want and need in Australia. "

Persons holding a specific skilled immigration visa are then eligible for permanent residence. But former vice-president of immigration, Abul Rizvi, points out that while theoretically feasible, the reality is not so good in the context of the new crown pandemic.

"In view of the ceiling on overseas arrivals, the outbreak of the new crown and the movement of transnational personnel, it is inevitable that the relevant positions will be filled by persons in Australia. "he said.


Border closure

Federal government expect that two-thirds of permanent visas for the current fiscal year will be granted to temporary visa holders in the country. The lack of new immigrants is bound to damage the lifeline of the country.

"There is no doubt that this will have a significant impact on the economic of the coming years ," said Jarrod Ball, chief economic of the Australian Development Centre. "

Last Tuesday's federal budget forecast that Australia's future population will be 1 million fewer than expected. This year's population growth will fall from 1.6 percent to a low of 0.2 percent.

Net overseas migration is expected to plunge into its first negative growth since World War II and return to positive growth by 2022-23.

However, the prediction encountered a lot of doubts. "From my current point of view, the forecast is too optimistic ," Ritzway said. I believe government will have to re-examine the data. "

Although the 160,000 permanent residence quota for fiscal year 2019-2020 was not met, only 140366 permanent residence visas were issued government then. But the federal government kept the current fiscal year's immigration quota ceiling at 160,000.

The reality is that Australia's borders will have to be reopened if immigration is to return to pre-epidemiological levels, Mr. Rizvi said.

"We have closed our borders and Australia has closed our doors to the world, and it is clear that people are neither here nor here. but this is the key and we need to open up as soon as possible. Immigration is the lifeline of enterprises, so we need to push forward as soon as possible (border opening). "

But some economic suggest that australia also needs to attract skilled migrants through welfare subsidies. "It's not too late to provide some kind of support for temporary immigrants ," Bauer said. During the economic boom, they brought substantial net fiscal gains to the federal budget, which lasted 30 years. I think it's important that feedback has been a long-term contributor to the federal budget. "

Arona from the Philippines hopes to stay in Australia for a long time to continue working. She admitted that the current occupation was not suitable for everyone, but she loved it.

"It's not about your nationality, it's about whether you're fit for the job. If you love it and devote yourself to it, fight for it. "
