Australia’s skilled migration program is designed to fill the skill gaps to meet the country’s economic needs. However,shortages in some skills continue to persist.

Nurses, electricians, secondary school teachers, motor mechanics, metal fitters, carpenters and joiners are the most in-demand skills this year in Australia, reports SBS Punjabi.

In the year 2018-19, Australia has reserved over 17,300 places for registered nurses under the Skilled Independent stream which has a total of 43,990 places.

Under this stream, visa applicants are not required to have any state/territory or employer nomination and they are issued a permanent visa (Subclass 189) and they are free to live and work anywhere in Australia.

In this year’s immigration planning in Australia, 17,322 registered nurses are required and the Department of Home Affairs has invited only 413 people to apply for a visa until 11 September.

While with 9,303 electricians, 8,480 secondary school teachers, 83,72 carpenters and joiners, 6,979 metal fitters and machinists and 6,099 motor mechanics are some of the most in-demand occupations, very few people have been invited to apply for a visa under these occupations.

Australia has a massive skill shortage, particularly in rural and regional areas. Agriculture Minister David Littleproud told SBS Punjabi last month that the farming sector in particular was grappling with shortage of labour.

“Agriculture has a huge shortage of labour, particularly for picking, and an ag visa [agriculture visa] can help address that,” Mr Littleproud said last month.

While a stand-alone agriculture visa has run into trouble with the coalition partners- the Liberals and the Nationals- have different views on it, the new Immigration Minister has repeatedly said that his priority is to address the skill gap in regional Australia.
