Significant changes to Australia’s migration system, announced today by the Federal Government, will deliver better long-term outcomes by better targeting key skill shortages, lifting productivity and strengthening the economy, according to the Business Council.

BCA Chief Executive Bran Black said the Migration Strategy included many important changes called for by the BCA, including better long-term permanent migration planning that would enable better linkages with housing and infrastructure planning.

“Australia’s prosperity, our jobs, our living standards and the strength of our economy are all directly linked to a successful, efficient and well targeted migration program and these changes get the balance right,” Mr Black said.

“We need nurses for health and aged care, specialist engineers to support our energy transition, and experts for cyber security, and by filling these roles we are supporting Australian businesses and at the same time improving the lives of Australians.”

Section 140GBA of the Migration Act requires a person who nominates a proposed occupation or an applicant for a visa of a prescribed kind under section 140GB to meet the labour market testing (LMT) conditions, unless the exemptions in sections 140GBB or 140GBC apply, or the Minister has determined under subsection 140GBA(2) it would be inconsistent with any international trade obligation. The term labour market testing is defined in subsection 140GBA(7) of the Migration Act.

It requires businesses to test the Australian labour market to demonstrate whether a position could be readily filled by a suitably qualified and experienced Australian citizen or permanent resident.
