Why Did Australia Wind Down On Immigration?

Australia witnessed an increasing demand to limit migration. A post-pandemic surge in students and other arrivals further strained its rental market, contributing to higher inflation rates. This led to the winding down of immigration. 


Other Visas

The government has put intense scrutiny on student visas and is also expected to roll out a ballot system for work and holiday visas from China, Vietnam, and India, starting in the fiscal year ending June 2025.


Business Innovation And Investor Visa

The Business Innovation and Investment Visa Program (BIIP) will cease. Terminating BIIP marks a significant shift in Australia’s migration setup as it previously offered a path to permanent residency via investment.
