All of the major permanent skilled migration categories have been or are currently under review by the Coalition Government. An analysis of the review processes and outcomes (where complete) indicate that the Coalition has mostly left these programs intact. However, in the case of the Independent and Skilled – Australia Linked categories, an important new element of skills targeting is about to be introduced which indicates that the Coalition has taken account of some criticism of past selection policies in regard to these categories.
