The Australian Government has maintained its commitment to reform the Australian immigration program in the program year 1998-99. This article assesses the implications of the proposals for the parent category, explores the extent to which the removal of fraudulent applications explains the striking downturn in spouse/fiancé(e) visas, and examines the impact of applying a two-year waiting period to labour-market payments made to New Zealand citizens settling in Australia.
