Australia announces intention to reduce migration intake by half in 2 years   

The Australian government has announced its intention to cut the migration intake by half within two years.  

Nairametrics learns that the move is to address the perceived issues in the country’s immigration system by reducing the annual intake to 250,000, aligning with pre-pandemic levels by June 2025. 

The introduced measures include heightened minimum English-language requirements for international students and increased scrutiny for those seeking a second visa.
