Thousands of international students who graduated from Sydney and Melbourne-based universities and colleges moved into Tasmania last year to be privileged with the state nomination for Australian permanent residency. During the program year 2018-2019, the Department of Home Affairs sent not a single invitation on couples of occupations owing thousands of quotas for Australian permanent residency visas as per occupation celling previously made public.
Many international students are now struggling to get an invitation to remain in Australia.
This shows a mismatch between what Australia wants and what international students are being prepared for. International students and Australian permanent residency aspirants who graduated and skilled in popular occupations such as Accounting, Nursing, Information Technology, and Engineering are now struggling to get an invitation as well as a nomination for state and regional migration. But, on the other hand, thousands of permanent residency visa quotas freezing without sending a single invitation. Figures released by the Department of Home Affairs confirms Livestock Farmers, Other Specialist Managers, Actors, Dancers, and Other Entertainers, Music Professionals, Artistic Directors, and Media Producers and Presenters, Economists, Geologists, Geophysicists, and Hydro-geologists did not get any invitations during the program year 2018-2019. Other occupations Environmental Scientists, Barristers, Sheet metal Trades Workers, Precision Metal Trades Workers, Panel beaters, Boat Builders and Shipwrights, Sports Coaches, Instructors, and Officials and Sportspersons also did not get any invitations.
