Planning the 2016-17 Migration Programme

December 22, 2015

In the past month TAA has been represented at a number of forums on labour migration inclusive of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection Conference in Melbourne, the Permanent Migration Roundtable and the Ministerial Advisory Council on Skilled Migration.

During the month we provided a response to the Department on its Planning the 2016-17 Migration Programme – Discussion Paper.    We continue to reinforce the need for more flexibility in labour visas, a specific focus on regional visas to address the skills shortages and the importance of intra-corporate transfers.
