New Migrants May Need to Reside in Australian Regional for 5 Years

04 Sep 2018

The Australian Federal Cabinet is examining a proposal, to begin mandatory settlement for new immigrants in far-flung regional areas. The duration is likely to increase to five years after they land in Australia. The plan is to ease the population pressure and tackling Sydney congestion and Melbourne. The migrants changed will be in the stream of skilled and family. The data of the Home Affairs Department unveils that 87% of newly arriving migrants, currently settle in these two cities. Moreover, there will be an order asking the current migrants to live in regional areas, which struggle with the shorter population. The additional option is other capital cities also.

The logic of this settlement plan is that such migrants will spend the time in an area, and will also opt for remaining to live there after building a connection with the community.

The chances Presently, Australia has multiple visas, like 489 Skilled (Provisional), Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (187) Skilled Regional (Permanent) 887, which assist immigrants to settle in regional areas.

A candidate who carries 190 Permanent Visa, and is not capable to find any work, tells the officials about the survival difficulties. Consequently, the sponsor state allows the visa holders, to move outside the state. Furthermore, the temporary visa holders must stay in regional areas, to satisfy the necessary conditions, before receiving permanent residency.

Shortage of job opportunities

Some migrants to these areas have to sustain because the companies give preference to local applicants in providing jobs. When they get the work after a great struggle, they have to spend hours each day commuting, between homes, at a far place and site of working. There is less time for the family matters. There is a shortage of opportunities for new migrants.

Moreover, some present and former politicians are calling regarding a cut in intake rate of Australian immigration. The Citizenship Minister Alan Tudge is taking measures and directing the new migrants to remain in rural/regional areas.

The Unemployment Issue

The Unemployment rate is rising in Tasmania, in the last 12 months. Some people feel that there is no power, to put this measure, in place and mandate the people, to stay in an area.
