- Australia – Federal Budget 2011-12: Immigration update
- Area: Employers
In the federal Budget announced on 10 May 2011, a number of immigration related announcements were made. Some of the initiatives attempt to address the systemic problems around attracting and retaining skilled staff in Australia’s regions.
In addition, the government has proposed to develop a new skilled migrant selection model, which would predominately affect individuals not sponsored by an employer, such as those in the skilled independent visa categories.
