It is reported that the Cabinet has passed the plan, and this time it is still a big move! Cut the number up to 30,000!
 
 
Australia currently has an annual immigration quota of 190,000. Perhaps starting in July this year, the entire immigration quota will be drastically reduced by 30,000! To only 160,000! It will also be the first time since 2010 that the Australian government has cut its immigration quota in eight years. The key is that this is only the planned immigration quota. In reality, the number of immigrants that can be achieved is far below the quota.
 
For example:
In fiscal year 2016-2017, there were only 183,608 people, below the quota of 190,000.
In fiscal year 2017-2018, there were only 163,000 people, 20,000 fewer than the previous year.
 
And if this year's quota is drastically reduced by 30,000, the actual number of immigrants may only be about 130,000-150,000. The competition for immigrants is really getting fiercer.
The new quota targets will be implemented from July this year. You who are still on the way of immigration, if you can, just be quick!
In addition to reducing immigration quotas, this reform will focus on adjusting the immigration structure and increasing the proportion of highly skilled migrants.
 
The Australian government clearly means that only the "best and smartest" immigrants who can truly contribute to the Australian economy will be accepted.
 
Australia does not welcome immigrants who come to burden the welfare system.
Asked if the quota cuts were related to terrorist attacks, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said: It is not related. The main purpose of this reduction is to alleviate the pressure of urban population and avoid excessive population growth.
In addition, the Morrison government also revealed that the government will give more "support" to students who go to remote areas.
The implication is that if skilled migrants want to make up enough points, only the way up to the mountains and down to the countryside can be taken.
It really makes people who want to stay in Melbourne, Sydney tremble! But Prime Minister Morrison has pointed out another way for everyone: to be a farmer!
Last week, the government just opened the visa for farmers. If you dare to pick up a hoe, you can stay in Australia easily. Employers can introduce foreign farmers with a four-year visa, renew it many times, and have the opportunity to obtain permanent residence. Each of these policy changes can make the Chinese community tremble.
 
Because:
1. China is Australia's second largest source of immigration, after India.  Of Australia's 2.2 million permanent immigrants from 2000 to 2016, 247,202 came from China. Once the immigration quota is low, the competition will be more intense and the way for Chinese to immigrate to Australia will be more difficult.
 
 
2. Among the 22 million Australian permanent immigrants, 58% were skilled visa immigrants and 32% were family visa immigrants. If the Australian government adjusts the immigration structure and increases the proportion of highly skilled immigrants, the proportion of family visa immigrants will certainly decrease.
You said that the total immigration quota would have been reduced, and now the proportion would have been reduced, and the number of family visas would have been less.
 
But crucially, among all family visa immigrants in Australia, the Chinese are the largest, accounting for 14%.
