Australia's 2023-24 Permanent Migration Program
Australia's Permanent Migration Program (Migration Program) aims to balance a range of economic, social and demographic objectives and priorities, while focusing on Australia’s longer-term national interests. Between December 2022 and January 2023, the Department invited public submissions to inform the annual planning of Australia’s Migration Program for 2023-24.
Questions for consideration:
- What is the ideal size and composition of the 2023-24 permanent Migration Program? And why?
- How can we improve our migration planning process so Australia remains attractive to prospective migrants inagainst the backdrop of widespread workforce shortages and aging populations across migrant-receiving countries?
To assist with submissions, the Department published the
Planning Australia’s 2023-24 Migration Program Discussion Paper.
Members of the public were also referred to the following sources:
On 2 September 2022, the Minister for Home Affairs, the Hon Clare O’Neil MP, announced a comprehensive review of Australia’s migration system. It details the purpose, structure and objectives, to ensure it meets the challenges of the coming decades.
Questions regarding broader migration policy settings will be addressed through migration review consultations. Members of the public who wished to submit migration views beyond the scope of the 2023-24 Migration Program, were refered to
A Migration System for Australia’s Future.
