Australia’s new Immigration Minister David Coleman has marked a refurbish of regional visas, saying some towns are in drastic need for migrants.

He has further stated that “That's something I'm looking at very closely at the moment,”

“There are a number of different regional visa classes at the moment and one of the things I'm assessing is the effectiveness of each of those programs and potential ways of improving those.”

Several visas are now available to migrants to fulfil skills scarcity in rural and regional Australia including Warrnambool in Victoria, the Goldfields region of Western Australia and the entire state of South Australia. Mr. Coleman has agreed that these regions need over thousands of migrants.;

Department of Home Affairs has calculated that 10,918 places were granted under the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme in the 2016-17 financial years. And together with the 1,670 Skilled Regional visas, they held about 10 per cent of permanent migration visas.

Mr Coleman insisted the importance of learning English to assure English language requirements. “Having some English is obviously a good thing in Australian life,” he said. “The more English people are able to speak, the more they can contribute in Australian life.”
