IGEA Submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Migration’s Inquiry into Australia’s Skilled Migration Program


IGEA has made a submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Migration’s inquiry into Australia’s skilled migration program, covering issues such as:

  1. The purpose of the skilled migration program and whether it is meeting its intended objectives,
  2. Australia’s international competitiveness in attracting entrepreneurs, venture capital, startups, and the best and brightest skilled migrants with cutting edge skills;
  3. Skills lists and the extent to which they are meeting the needs of industries and businesses and keeping pace with Australia’s job landscape;
  4. The administrative requirements for Australian businesses seeking to sponsor skilled migrants, including requirements to prioritise job opportunities for Australians and job creation;
  5. The costs of sponsorship to businesses seeking to sponsor skilled migrants;
  6. The complexity of Australia’s skilled migration program including the number of visa classes under the program and their requirements, safeguards and pathways; and
  7. Any other related matters.


This submission was on the back of our earlier work on video game related occupations and the Australian migration system.
