Australia | Changes impacting employment related migration as of 1 July 2022

Australia’s borders have now been open to fully vaccinated travelers for three months. However, visa application processing has not resumed its pre-pandemic pace and skill shortages continue across the Australian economy.  While the newly elected Government has a greater focus on protecting local employment opportunities and working conditions as well as protecting temporary workers, skilled migration to address Australia’s skills shortages remains a key feature of immigration policy.

Expected 1 July 2022 changes include:

  • Annual adjustments to charges and thresholds

  • Superannuation guarantee rate increase

  • Additional pathways and concessions for employer sponsored permanent residence

This Alert also covers other immigration measures to address workforce shortages and New Zealand immigration updates.

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
