​​​​​​​​​​Australia's 2022-23 Migration Program​​​

Australia's permanent Migration Program is carefully designed to achieve a range of economic and social outcomes that meet Australia’s needs.

The permanent Migration Program is planned annually, with program settings announced as part of the Federal Budget each year.

The Department of Home Affairs (the Department) undertakes comprehensive consultation to inform the size and composition of the Migration Program each year, including advice from States and Territories, Government agencies, industry, academia and the public.

Request for public submissions​​​​​​

The Department is now inviting public submissions as part of the 2022-23 Migration Program planning process.

We welcome submissions regarding Australia's permanent migration needs, including views on the size and composition of the 2022-23 Migration Program, noting the challenges presented by COVID-19 and trends identified in the Australian Government’s Population Statement and the 2021 Intergenerational Report. Submissions will inform Australia’s Migration Program settings to support Australia’s recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 in the short term and support a future Australia for 2030 and beyond.
