The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has launched a blog to promote Australia’s skilled migration policy and contribute to an informed public policy-making environment.
The blog will highlight existing skilled migration policy, flag potential program changes and be a vehicle for engagement with the community to increase awareness about skilled migration in Australia.
These programs include the temporary 457 visa program, the permanent employer-sponsored programs and the permanent general skilled migration program. The first blog post focuses on enterprise migration agreements (EMAs), a policy response to the tight labour market in the resource sector.
Visitors to the skilled migration blog, www.skilledmigration.govspace.gov.au, will be able to explore different aspects to skilled migration over the coming months. The department will update the blog regularly.
More information about skilled migration programs can be found on the department’s website at www.immi.gov.au/skilled/
