Points test will be reformed to drive Australia’s long term success.

The points test discussion paper was released on April 2024 aiming to invite submissions to the review of the points test addressed in The Australian Government’s Migration Strategy was released on 11 December 2023.

The Migration Review found that the points test is not delivering for Australia, noting that it is ‘not designed to identify applicants with the best potential to contribute to Australia over the long term’. It found thata reformed points test should:

  • focus on characteristics that are associated with migrants successfully finding skilled work

  • not drive permanent temporariness and give migrants greater certainty about their prospects for permanent residence

  • better target the skills Australia needs now and in the future

  • reflect that younger migrants will spend more years contributing to Australian workplaces

  • better recognise the potential contributions to Australia from partners.
