路透报导,澳洲2022年至2023年的净移民数字达到创纪录的51万人,内政部长欧尼尔(Clare O’Neil)表示,增加主要因素为国际学生。

欧尼尔表示,政府这项具有针对性的政策已给净海外移民带来压力,这将会进一步促使移民数量下降。官方统计数据显示,2024年至2025年、2025年至2026年的净移民人数将会下降至25万人左右,也就是与新冠疫情之前持平。

澳洲去年增加年度移民数量以协助企业招聘员工,填补新冠疫情大流行严格边境管制后的短缺。然而如今外籍工人与学生突然大量涌进让原本就已紧张的租赁市场面临更多压力,使得无家可归的人越来越多。

澳洲总理艾班尼斯(Anthony Albanese)周末时提到,澳洲移民数量需要回到可持续的水平,更称系统已经崩溃。依据雪梨晨驱报一项调查,有62%澳洲人认为澳洲的移民数量过高。

报导也提到,澳洲是世界上劳动力最紧张的市场之一,澳洲工党政府一直在推动高技术工人的入境速度,为这些人取得永久居留权铺路。这波新政策也将为高技能工人设立新的专业签证,处理时间为一周,帮助企业在与其他发达经济体的激烈竞争中招募延揽优秀移民。

Australia on Monday said it would tighten visa rules for international students and low-skilled workers that could halve its migrant intake over the next two years as the government looks to overhaul what it said was a “broken” migration system.

Under the new policies, international students would need to secure higher ratings on English tests and there would be more scrutiny on a student’s second visa application that would prolong their stay.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese over the weekend said Australia’s migration numbers needed to be wound back to a “sustainable level,” adding that “the system is broken.”

The decision comes after net immigration was expected to have peaked at a record 510,000 in 2022-23. Official data showed it was forecast to fall to about a quarter of a million in 2024-25 and 2025-26, roughly in line with pre-COVID levels.
