The Australian Government has tripled the number of spots for the Global Talent Independent Program to 15,000 for 2020-21. As part of its recovery budget for the economy battered by the Coronavirus crisis, the planned ceiling for total immigration into Australia will remain at 160,000, with 15000 spots for the Global Talent program and an additional 13500 spots for the Business Innovation and Investment Program for immigration into Australia.
In 2020-21 the planned ceiling for the Migration Program will remain at 160,000 places.
The program will have a strong focus on attracting the best and brightest migrants from around the world, with a tripling of the Global Talent Independent program allocation to 15,000 places and an increase in the Business Innovation and Investment Program (BIIP) to 13,500 places. The BIIP will also be streamlined and reformed to ensure that investments are targeted at Australian venture capitals and emerging small and medium size businesses to support the economic recovery.
