Audio Podcast about Australian Immigration Latest News 2022 | “Temporary Visas not the Solution to skills shortages”
According to Australia, permanent residency is the ultimate solution.
The Prime Minister has stated that temporary residency/temporary visa isn’t the solution to skills shortages.
While permanent residency will create a significant difference in the Australian market.
So I'll elaborate on the Prime Minister's statements and when this discussion took place.
Today, I’ll talk about the prospects of getting permanent residency in Australia.
My name is Nasir Nawaz and I’m a registered migration agent in Australia.
Prime Minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese has stated that temporary visas aren’t the solution to anything.
Whereas, permanent residency will surely create a significant difference in skills shortages in Australia.
He shared his comments during a press conference. A summit is going to be held in September where he said that permanent presence of workers would make a "significant difference”.
"It is absurd at a time of skills shortages, there have people who have been waiting for such a long period of time.”
So, he said that it’s very strange that people are waiting for their visa grants.
Let me tell you that a lot of skilled migration visas have a massive backlog.
I’ve discussed the visa backlogs in my previous video on Youtube. You can watch it.
I’ve also talked about this on other social media platforms like our podcasts on Spotify.
So, Anthony Albanese further stated that:
"We do have some short-term skills shortages that will always need to be filled by temporary migration".
Mr Albanese said temporary migration would continue to play a role, but also indicated the possibility of more long-term or permanent options.
He said that it’s understandable that there’re many skill shortages that can be temporarily resolved.
But we have to find permanent solutions so that people come to Australia and settle here permanently.
So that, the point of skill shortages could be resolved permanently or the vacuum could be reduced and job vacancies could be filled.
He further added,
"One of the things that we can consider, that I've spoken about, is — how is (it) that for some particular professions, that have been short of supply for such a long period of time, we continue to rely on temporary migration rather than more permanent forms?"
It's ironic that there are so many skills shortages that need to be resolved permanently yet we rely on temporary solutions.
So, we have to settle people permanently.
Additionally, he said,
"And we need to make sure that we have better pathways as well to a permanent presence in Australia for people to give us the skills that they need."
So again, he rephrased his statement by saying that we need people in Australia permanently. Temporary migration isn’t our solution.
Who’s talking about this? The Prime Minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese, who's the boss and he will continue to implement these policies.
The purpose of announcing this policy is that things are in process.
In addition, the Prime Minister announced that a white paper will be published to collect feedback from the industry.
White paper means that when an issue arises in democracies, a white paper is published to get feedback from industries and stakeholders.
The feedback is provided to the government so that its policies can be adjusted accordingly.
If we notice, industries have skill shortages as they can’t find skilled workers/skilled laborers.
A laborer isn’t a common worker but a professional or skilled employee who’s hard to find.
In the future, you will see more pathways for PR in Australia when this feedback comes from the industry.
Moreover, he said:
"During COVID, of course, we faced a once-in-a-generation challenge," he told reporters.
"But it opens up as well a once-in-a-generation opportunity for how we grow back stronger from the COVID pandemic."
So he said that it was a once-in-a-generation challenge. But you can also avail a once-in-a-generation opportunity.
Covid-19 happened once in 100 years.
So he said that we can find opportunities out of this situation as well.
Further, Mr. Albanese said Treasury would also develop a White Paper on the issue, as I’ve already discussed it.
Treasurer Jim Chalmers said while the economic challenges were "thick on the ground", so too were the opportunities and possibilities.
The treasurer is discussing this by stating:
The government changed hands at a time of high and rising inflation, falling real wage, labour shortage and all of the challenges that come with that.”
"And so, we owe it to the Australian people to try and find ... that common ground so that we can reach the common objectives together."
A summit is scheduled for September, for which invitations will be sent in August.
So, this news has been published. Now, what's the outcome?
Look, since the Govt. has been elected, the immigration minister, Andrew Giles and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese have discussed these issues.
Also, these issues were discussed at the first National Cabinet Meeting.
The Treasurer also talks about it.
They’re aware of a few things that, there’s a huge visa backlog, and how they tried to settle people and filled the skill shortages temporarily. They know about this.
Apart from this, they had to make people wait for a long period.
They’re also aware that there’s a skills shortage in Australia and temporary migration isn’t the solution.
So, the government understands this. They know that they should bring people permanently.
For example, there’s a skill for which you need people for the next 20 or 30 years. So, how many times will you give them a 2-year extension?
Or for how long people will stay there?
Eventually, people will stop prioritizing living in Australia.
People will not think about coming to Australia as they’ve spent their prime time.
A person who comes to Australia in his youth doesn't see any rewards or chances of permanent residency or citizenship.
So, why would he come to Australia?
Australia is on its way to taking charge of its industries and economic activities as well.
According to their statements, you'll see more pathways soon.
This is the case, based on the statements. We will see how they make policies and manage everything else in the future.
Prime Minister, Immigration Minister and National Cabinet are very active and regularly give their statements on the issues people have been silent about for so long.
Now the wait is over as new policies will be introduced and permanent residencies will be offered. Also, there’ll more opportunities for onshore and offshore applicants.
So, this was all that Prime Minister has discussed.
I’ll keep discussing these things on different platforms in the future.
