​​​​​​​​​​​​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 generally announced as part of the Federal Budget each year.

The Department of Home Affairs (the Department) consults comprehensively to inform the size and composition of the Migration Program. Part of this consultation includes input from:

  • States and Territories
  • Government agencies
  • industry
  • academia, and
  • the public.

Public submissions​​​​​​

The Department invites submissions regarding Australia's permanent migration needs, including views on the size and composition of future Migration Programs. We note 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. They also support a future Australia for 2030 and beyond.​
