Here is a breakdown of the planning levels for each visa category:
|2015-16 Migration Programme
|State/Territory & Regional Nominated
|Business Innovation & Investment Programme
|Total Skill Stream
· Orphan Relative
|Total Family Stream
|Special Eligibility Stream
|Total managed Migration Programme
|Child (outside the managed Migration Programme)
|Total permanent migration places
Whilst the overall size and composition of the programme remain the same as last year there are changes in how the programme will be managed affecting the Child category visa and Orphan relative visas.
Child category visas (excluding Orphan Relative) will no longer be counted under the managed Migration Programme. This is in response to the Government’s commitment to reform and improve the processes relating to inter-country adoption. The Child category will continue to be carefully monitored while it transitions to a fully demand-driven model by 2019-20.
Orphan Relative visas will now form part of the Other Family category within the Migration Programme with 400 places allocated to Orphan Relative visas.
