Australia’s Migration Programme for 2014-15 has 190 000 places.

With the reprioritisation towards employer-sponsored visas, employers will be assisted in finding workers to fill vital positions where they have been unable to find local workers. This also protects Australian workers, who will have less direct competition from independent migrants who arrive without a guaranteed job.

The 2014-15 migration program includes 128 550 places for skilled migration, 60 885 places for family migration and 565 places for migration under the special eligibility stream.
