IMPACT – MEDIUM
Scott Morrison has retained Australia’s prime ministership after his Liberal-National Coalition won a majority in Saturday’s federal election. The vote followed a campaign in which immigration was top issue for both of Australia’s major political parties.
Analysis & Comments: A senate committee in Morrison’s Government proposed a number of changes to Australia’s Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) visa in April, including increasing the Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold (TSMIT), changing the ANZSCO framework and the skills assessment process, and introducing stricter labor market testing requirements. That said, Deloitte does not anticipate any substantial visa program changes at this point. Deloitte will continue to advocate to the Government on its clients behalf to address genuine skills shortages in the Australian marketplace and a balanced, accessible migration program.
