While bloggers are doing “copy-paste” the quotas of the Australian migration program for 2022-2023 from the website of the Department in their articles, we have prepared some analytics for you and helpful information based on data provided by official sources within the last few years.
Let’s take a look what we can expect in the coming financial year, that might explain some changes to the migration program, what trends you have to pay attention to if you are planning to move to Australia.
1 In total allocated places for the migration program for the next financial year is the same as in the past two years – 160,000 visas.
I want to clarify that not all visas are capped by Department. Many temporary visas with no direct pathway to PR are not included in migration program and could be granted on demand. For example, student and tourist, graduation and guardian visas, temporary work visas 482, prospective marriage visas and many more.
2 The total number of places are the same, but there was a serious redistribution inside. As you know, there are 2 migration streams in Australia with a small number of “Special Eligibility” visas.
The migration program for 2022–2023 will be back to the “pre-pandemic” composition: approximately 2/3 of the skilled stream + 1/3 of the family stream.
|Skilled stream||108 682||79 600||79 600||+38%||109 900|
|Family stream||47 732||77 300||77 300||-40%||47 000|
|Child||3 350||3 000||3 000||0||3 000|
|Employer sponsored||22 000||+36%||30 000|
|Skilled Independent||6 500||+155%||16 652|
|State and Territory Nominated||11 200||+124%||25 000|
|Business and Innovation and Investment||13 500||-30%||9 500|
|Global Talent||15 000||-44%||8 488|
|Total||79 600||+38%||109 900|
It makes sense to look more precisely at temporary visas, perhaps even those that do not / do not yet have a direct transition to a permanent visa, such as student, graduate, temporary work, temporary regional visas with a state nomination, and even tourist visa with properly prepared strategy.

|Child||3 000||0||3 000|
|Family Total||80 300||-40%||50 000|
In conclusion, I would like to note that the number of places that the Department announces includes both places for main applicants (partner, skilled migrant, refugee, parent) and dependent applicants (spouses, children). For example, if partner with two children receives a visa, they take three places from the family stream. If the state gives an nomination to a skilled applicant and his family of 4, it counts as 5 places from the skilled stream.
