The government of South Australia has set a limited quota, details of which shall be announced to the public in October, for immigration applications for the year 2021.
Due to the massive effect of the Coronavirus pandemic, immigration to Australia has become a tangled matter, hence, the government of South Australia decided to set a quota and prioritize two streams of immigration; business innovation immigration and investment immigration.
The South Australia government announced on its website that these programs, along with the state’s general skilled migration program, will be prioritized as follows:
“Based on direction from the Department of Home Affairs, applications will be prioritised according to:
- High quality applications within the Business Innovation and Investment Program, with those who have already lodged an ‘Intention to Apply’ given priority consideration.
- Applicants critical to supporting South Australia’s response to the COVID19 pandemic, including individuals providing critical or specialist medical services, critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services; or delivering services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery.
- Early consideration to onshore applicants that satisfy the above criteria.”
Applications for interested applicants will open in late August, to know more about the immigration to Australia before the quota is filled, contact us.
