Australia's permanent Migration Program is carefully designed to achieve a range of economic and social outcomes that meet Australia's needs.
The Migration Program is planned annually, with program settings announced as part of the Federal Budget each year.
Each year the Department of Home Affairs undertakes comprehensive consultation to inform the make-up of the Migration Program, including advice from states and territories, government agencies, industry, academia and the public.
Request for public submissions
